Hendersonville Addiction Treatment
At Southeast Addiction Center, we understand the grip that addiction can take on the lives of those struggling as well as the lives around them.
Situated in Sumner County, Tennessee, Hendersonville is the largest city in the county. With a population of roughly 58,000 people, Hendersonville has seen growth alongside the Nashville metropolitan area. The city, much like Nashville, has a rich heritage of famous musicians and musical talents emerging from the area—including the legendary Johnny Cash. Like many counties in the Nashville Metropolitan area, Hendersonville in Sumner County has been suffering from the impact of the opioid epidemic.
According to the CDC, in 2016 Sumner County, TN had an opioid prescription rate of about 90.9 per 100 people, which is a very high number. This number was reduced in 2018 to 81.8 as per a later CDC report. Tennessee, in general, is one of the highest-ranking states in terms of frequency of prescribing opioids.
In Tennessee, drug overdose deaths involving opioids numbered 1,307 in 2018. While opioid prescribing is down overall in the United States, deaths involving methadone and synthetic opioids such as fentanyl. Heroin deaths are also on the rise. While curtailing the prescription of opioids to patients is a necessity, there is an unfortunate side effect that those who are addicted will turn to illegal street drugs to meet their needs.
Sumner County was one of the 8 counties in Tennessee that experienced an increase in opioid (including heroin) overdose visits from 2017-2018 according to the state’s government website. Total heroin overdose outpatient visits in Sumner county had an increase of greater than or equal to 10. Hendersonville, the largest city in the county, has experienced the ill effects of this wave of addiction that is currently plaguing the state with an increase of drug overdose deaths.
Athens Addiction Treatment – Inpatient Drug Rehab
At Southeast Addiction Center, we understand the grip that addiction can take on the lives of those struggling as well as the lives around them. As one of the leaders in Georgia addiction treatment, our upscale treatment facilities for our Inpatient Drug Rehab creates an immersive experience to kickstart the journey of healing to facilitate lifelong recovery. With a number of modalities offering structure and support, Southeast Addiction Center offers the following:
Individual therapy is the bedrock of many treatment modalities. Substance use disorders have many things in common, but for each person, a unique set of circumstances may be behind what is perpetuating the abuse patterns. Individual therapy can help the patient become aware of those patterns and avoid them from spiraling out of control.
Addiction affects not just one person, but the whole community they are part of. It is through the community that addiction also spreads. Offering up quality family programming can help families and friends understand what are the most productive ways to help a loved one who is suffering from addiction.
Addiction is comorbid with many mental health issues including but not limited to depression, GAD (generalized anxiety disorder), or personality disorders such as BPD. These mental health troubles exacerbate or sometimes altogether are the root of addiction for a given individual, and so helping that individual in their medication management for these conditions is one of the most powerful practices to aid a healthy and long-lasting recovery.
