Las Vegas Drug Addiction Treatment Center
Las Vegas, Nevada is the most populous city in the State of Nevada. It is the county seat of Clark County. With a population of around 583,756, it bills itself as The Entertainment Capital of the World, and is famous for its casino resorts and associated entertainment. Las Vegas is the 28th-most populous city in the United States. The Las Vegas metropolitan area has a population of nearly 2,000,000. Established in 1905, Las Vegas officially became a city in 1911. The city’s tolerance for various forms of adult entertainment has earned it the title of Sin City. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, only a small percentage of those who need drug rehab in Nevada are receiving it. For example, there is an estimated 191,000 Nevada residents who need substance abuse treatment. Of that number, only 39,408, or1out of 5, receive treatment. When it comes to the horrific problems of meth addiction, it doesn’t get any worse than Nevada. It ranks first nationally in abuse of methamphetamines. Every year, thousands of residents enter drug addiction rehab because they can’t stop using meth or other types of amphetamines. Law enforcement considers meth drug addiction to be problem #1. Among federally-sentenced criminal defendants facing drug charges, methamphetamines were involved in three-quarters of all cases. In recent years, prescription drug abuse has increased at an alarming rate in some cases causing tragic, fatal overdoses. Nevadans have become so hooked on pill-popping that they now consume about twice the national average of prescription painkillers, according to the Las Vegas Sun newspaper. In addition, more people in Clark County die of prescription drug overdoses than of overdoses of illicit drugs or even from vehicle accidents.
Las Vegas Drug Abuse Rehabilitation
Throughout his career spanning over two decades of coordinating successful sobriety programs, John Southworth determined that the majority of people in recovery from drug abuse simply do not have access to monitoring programs. As a result, in 1984, he began providing both inpatient and outpatient drug abuse and drug addiction counseling for groups and individuals. He also decided not only to provide counseling and education, but to provide interventions which help people help others through the process of recovery from drug addiction. In 2005, Southworth launched a monitoring program, modeled after the Program for Recovering Nurses, to provide an under-served population the diagnostic tools and monitoring protocol used in treatment for doctors and nurses.
