In a recent survey of Montana resident's drug and alcohol abuse rates the Substance Abuse and Mental health Services Administration (SAMHSA) reported that 10.77% the state's residents recounted using illicit drugs in the previous month. At the time of the survey, the national average was 8.82%. Moreover, 3.15% of those surveyed reported using an illicit drug other than marijuana in the month before the survey. In recent years, drugs such as other opiates and stimulants have continued to be a problem for residents in Montana. Statistics from SAMHSA's 2011 report show that marijuana was the primary illicit substance sending residents into treatment. Marijuana treatment admissions in Montana were followed by other opiates, stimulants and heroin addiction rehab enrollments.
Montana is home to many different forms of addiction rehabilitation. One well-known and highly effective form of treatment is long term inpatient care. With this type of drug rehab program, the addicted person moves out of their home and into the treatment facility where they are provided with comprehensive care around the clock. This type of treatment facility helps people who are willing to put their life on hold at home and dedicate a period of time to recovering from their addiction. Long term programs last on average ninety days or so. As a result, they have significantly lower drop out rates than outpatient programs.
Long term inpatient programs in Montana typically provide similar therapies as outpatient programs (group therapy, one on one counseling, etc.), but also include additional therapies the client would not receive elsewhere. Program participants at long-term inpatient treatment centers might receive exercise therapy, yoga classes as well as other meditational skills, art therapy, and therapeutic massage just to list a few. This form of treatment provides care that's just not possible in outpatient programs. For many recovering addicts the structure, around the clock supervision and sober environment make the difference in achieving and maintaining sobriety.
