What to Consider When Choosing a Rehab Center

There are many different types of rehab programs and treatment options to consider. Here are a few of the decisions you need to make:

Finding a Substance Abuse Treatment Center in Idaho

Start by contacting your referral center

In Idaho, the first step is to contact Substance Use Disorder Services at the Division of Behavioral Health (DBH) for a screening and referral to a treatment facility. Visit the referral page to find an approved treatment facility in your area from the seven regions serviced by the DBH. For more information on Substance Use Disorder Services, visit the DHHS website.

The purpose of a referral center is to determine what type of help each individual needs, as well as the resources available for each individual. The referral center is also the first point of contact for anyone who may need assistance paying for treatment. To learn if you qualify for low-income Medicaid services, and to determine eligibility, visit the Idaho DBH Medicaid information page.

    II. Substance Abuse and Rehab for At-Risk Groups

    Substance Abuse Treatment for Veterans

    Participation at Idaho Veterans Treatment Courts quadruples in four years

    34%

    Participants in Idaho Veterans Treatment Courts, 2012

    136

    Participants in Idaho Veterans Treatment Courts, 2016

    According to the State of Idaho Judicial Branch, Idaho Veterans Treatment Courts are a type of problem-solving court designed to ensure that veterans with substance use and/or mental health disorders receive treatment in the community rather than in prison. In 2012, when the first Idaho Veterans Treatment Courts were implemented, there were just 34 participants. By 2016, that number jumped to 136, a 300% increase in participation in the program’s first four years alone.

    Veterans in Idaho can reach out to their local VA medical center to search for information on substance abuse treatment, including the possibility of a VA-based substance use disorder (SUD) program, in their state. Additionally, they can locate information regarding substance abuse treatment services at the Idaho Division of Veterans Services.

    Treatment is available for veterans in Idaho who are suffering from a substance use disorder. As of 2017, there were 30 substance abuse treatment facilities in Idaho – representing 24.2% of all treatment facilities – catered specifically to veterans.

    Substance Abuse Treatment for Adolescents

    Adolescents in Idaho use marijuana at rates above and alcohol at rates below the national average

    7.2%

    of adolescents aged 12-17 used marijuana, 2014-2017

    9.6%

    of adolescents aged 12-17 drank alcohol, 2014-2017

    Between 2014 and 2017, 7.2% of adolescents aged 12-17 in Idaho reported engaging in marijuana use in the past month, slightly above the national average of 6.8%. In terms of alcohol use, 9.6% of adolescents aged 12-17 in Idaho had taken part in the behavior in the past month, slightly less than the national average of 10.1%. Additionally, 8.1% of individuals admitted to a substance abuse treatment program in Idaho in 2017 were aged 12-17. To overcome the challenges that youth face in overcoming substance addiction, some treatment centers provide adolescent-specific treatment programs.

    Additional Resources for Parents and Teachers

    The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare’s Division of Behavioral Health (DBH) offers Substance Use Disorder Services that refer residents to an approved treatment facility in the state. Each facility works with youth and adults in a particular region to prevent substance abuse and has unique resources for families in the region. To find an approved treatment facility near you, take a look at the DBH listing.

    Co-Occurring Mental Health & Substance Abuse Treatment

    Substance abuse and mental health issues tend to go hand-in-hand – the technical term is “co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders.” The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) reported that, in 2017, 45.6% of adults with a substance use disorder also had a mental health disorder, and 18.3% of adults with a mental health disorder also had a substance use disorder. For adolescents in 2017, 35.9% of those with a substance use disorder also had a major depressive episode, while 10.7% of adolescents with a major depressive episode also had a substance use disorder.

    Mental Health Resources and Treatment

    If you or someone you love is suffering from mental health issues, such as depression, PTSD, eating disorders, or severe anxiety, there are many resources from which to receive help.

    Below are a few ways to receive immediate assistance, as advised by MentalHealth.gov:

    Emergency Services: If your life (or someone else’s life) is in danger, always start by dialing 911 to gain immediate access to emergency services.

    Suicide Prevention: The number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is: 800-273-8255. You can also initiate a private live online chat.

    Veterans Crisis Line: Dial the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-8255 and press “1” to talk to someone immediately. You can also access help with a private online chat or text 838255.

    Here are two ways to find a provider of mental health treatment in Idaho:

    Idaho Department of Health and Welfare: The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare website has a section dedicated to helping the general public with mental health concerns and a special section devoted to mental health programs for youth.

    National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Idaho: The NAMI Idaho website connects residents of Idaho to mental health programs, including Youth Empowerment Services (YES) and Live Better Idaho, a program that provides resources to veterans.

    Individuals who have both substance use and mental health disorders may benefit from dual-diagnosis rehab facilities. Use the appropriate filter in our tool above to find rehabilitation centers with treatment programs designed to meet the unique challenge posed by co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders.

    III. Finding Aftercare in Idaho

    Substance abuse aftercare treatment is often overlooked, but it’s one of the most crucial steps in the rehabilitation process. The chances of relapsing after rehab dramatically rise for individuals who try to resume their lives without pursuing further treatment in an aftercare setting. Several different types of aftercare are available for recovering addicts, including follow-up visits for continued therapy, group therapy, and sober living homes. Research shows that long-term participation in aftercare activities dramatically improves the outcome of rehabilitation efforts.

    12-Step Addiction Meetings in Idaho

    Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) designed the 12-step process for individuals recovering from alcohol addiction, and today there are many other 12-step programs for other addictions and issues – Narcotics Anonymous (NA) being just one example.

    #

    Contact the appropriate local organization to find an AA or NA meeting near you

    The tool below lists the contact information for local organizations that will connect you to Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings near you. Since meeting times and locations change periodically, contact the local groups that coordinate the meetings to ensure that the information is up to date.

    Sober Living Homes

    Sober living homes (also referred to as recovery residences) are group homes that help recovering addicts transition from treatment facilities to living independently while maintaining their sobriety. These homes can be especially beneficial for individuals who don’t have a supportive and positive environment in which to live after leaving a rehabilitation facility.

    Residents of sober living homes can stay from a few months to several years, as long as they follow house rules and avoid relapse, as these homes typically have a zero-tolerance drug and alcohol policy. Additionally, residents are expected to complete chores, attend mutual support groups, and pay an equal share of the cost of renting the home.

    Some sober living homes are listed in our database, and you can find them by using the appropriate filter in our tool above. You can also check out our guide on sober living homes to learn more about them and to find a certified recovery residence near you.

    Key Indicators of Substance Abuse Issues

    When trying to understand substance abuse issues in a specific area, researchers and policymakers examine “key indicators.” Combined with usage statistics, key indicators can provide a deep level of insight into which substances present the most serious concerns and which demographics can be most impacted by substance abuse. Key indicators of substance abuse issues within the state of Idaho, along with recent, credible statistics, are examined below.

    Over 300,000 Idahoans suffer from mental illness every year

    As discussed earlier in this guide, there is a strong link between substance use disorders and mental health disorders. When an individual is afflicted with both of these issues at the same time, health professionals refer to it as co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders or a “dual diagnosis.” Consequently, the prevalence of mental health issues in a given state can also help us to understand the level of substance abuse.

     

    5.5%

    of Idaho adults had a serious mental illness

    14.6%

    of Idaho adolescents had a major depressive episode

    Between 2013 and 2017, 5.5% of Idaho adults were afflicted with a serious mental illness, compared to 4.2% nationally. Among Idaho adolescents, 14.6% of individuals aged 12-17 suffered a major depressive episode in the past year, compared to a national average of 12.1%.

    The table below sheds some light on the prevalence of mental health issues in Idaho.

    Suicide rates in Idaho are significantly higher than the national average

    The Centers for Disease Control reports that suicide is the leading cause of death in the United States. The suicide rate has risen in nearly every state from 1999 to 2016, with that rate increasing by more than 30% in half of all 50 states since 1999. Suicide is an act that is often linked to substance abuse. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, substance abuse is a primary risk factor for both adults and adolescents who attempt and/or complete suicide, and this is particularly true for at-risk populations.

    Furthermore, the relationship between substance abuse and suicide is multi-faceted and complex. Persons who have substance abuse issues typically also carry other risk factors for suicide, including depression, impulsive behavior, and other struggles with relationships, finances, illness, or unemployment that make them more likely to engage in self-harm. Between 1999 and 2016, Idaho witnessed a drastic 43.2% increase in the number of suicides. In 2017, Idaho ranked 5th in the country for the number of suicides per 100,000 residents.

    Idaho has a much higher opioid prescribing rate than the overall U.S. rate

    Prescription drug abuse – particularly in the form of opioids – has become an epidemic in the United States. While it is difficult to estimate how many individuals use these drugs as prescribed and how many abuse them, the Centers for Disease Control has researched the variation in opioid prescriptions between states, establishing a direct connection between an increased level of opioid prescriptions with a greater potential for dependence and abuse. Across the United States in 2017, 191 million prescriptions for opioids were written by physicians, ultimately leading one in four patients who begins long-term opioid therapy to an addiction.

    70.3

    opioid prescriptions per 100 Idaho residents, 2017

    58.7

    opioid prescriptions per 100 U.S. residents, 2017

    After peaking in 2012, the U.S. opioid prescribing rate has been on a steady decline for the last several years due to the explosion of the opioid epidemic and the recognition of the role that excessive opioid prescriptions have played in this epidemic. Between 2013 and 2017, the opioid prescribing rate in the United States dropped from 78.1 prescriptions per 100 residents to 58.7 prescriptions per 100 residents, a decrease of 24.84%. The opioid prescribing rate in Idaho was consistently higher than the U.S. prescribing rate during that time period, from 89.2 prescriptions per 100 residents in 2013 to 70.3 prescriptions per 100 residents in 2017, revealing a slightly lesser decrease of 21.19%.

    Idaho and U.S. Opioid Prescribing Rates, 2013-2017

    The rate of homelessness in Idaho is well below the national average

    A high rate of homelessness in an area indicates a greater potential for substance abuse issues. Homelessness has been shown to be linked to substance abuse as both a cause and a result; some individuals become homeless due to a substance use disorder, while other individuals who are already homeless frequently turn to substance use to dull the pain and desperation of their situation.

    The 2018 Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Point-in-Time Count reported approximately 552,830 homeless individuals in the United States, the equivalent of 17 of every 10,000 U.S. residents. This number represents a decrease of 4.1% since 2014 when the number of homeless persons in the U.S. was around 576,450. Furthermore, homelessness across the United States has decreased by 15% since 2007, the year that HUD began collecting data on the homeless population.

    of every 10,000 Idaho residents were homeless, 2018

    17

    By comparison, Idaho had approximately 2,012 homeless persons in 2018, equating to 12 of every 10,000 Idaho residents, which is lower than the national average. This number reveals a 4.37% decrease since 2014 when 2,104 homeless persons lived in Idaho.
