The majority of Iowa's population is located in urban centers such as Des Moines and Sioux City. Locations such as these, like many other urban communities, often thrive in the production, selling, distribution, and abuse of illegal drugs, in addition to alcohol being legal and a major problem faced by many Iowans. On a positive note, statistics may show some good news for Iowans who enjoy lower crime and drug abuse rates than most of the rest of the country.

Despite lower crime and drug abuse rates being generally lower in Iowa than most other states, there is at least one troubling statistic that many in Iowa would do well to pay heed: that of alcoholism in the state. Alcoholism is not only devastating to people all across America because it is so addictive and popular, but also because it is widely available and mass-marketed everywhere. Just about every American today will see thousands of advertisements for alcohol before they ever even try it, and the effects are very profitable for some but very dangerous for those who are influenced by it. Along with prescription drug abuse, alcohol is the most dangerous drug in America today.

Iowa has also been affected by recent crystal methamphetamine and prescription narcotic epidemics. Communities all across the state are constantly fighting to weed out meth labs and identify the sources of fraudulently obtained prescription drugs. Many of these drugs seem harmless at first but the dangers of drugs such as Oxycontin and Vicodin have gotten so severe that accidental prescription drug overdoses was the leading cause of accidental death in the nation in 2011.

Unfortunately, there is no practical way to stop individuals from experimenting or using drugs recreationally or otherwise. As alcohol and prescriptions drugs are legal and easily accessible, they often replace illicit drugs when price and availability become an issue. Despite this fact, there are still ways to prevent abuse, by increasing awareness and educating the public about the dangers of substance abuse and addiction.

Those who have fallen into addiction, committing to a treatment program may not be easy, but it is usually the only way to get clean. Denial and lack of understanding is often one of the biggest barriers commonly found in individuals struggling with an addiction, and treatment usually comes as family and friends intervene and seek help for their loved one. For the few who seek help themselves, research shows that recovery is often achieved sooner, as the addicted individual has found the need to recover and have a better realization of their issues.

Drug and Alcohol Rehab therapy takes many forms including psychotherapy, group and individual counseling, meditation and yoga, as well as regular exercise and family counseling. For more information on addiction treatment, please call, chat on line now, or e-mail us. Admissions into the different programs are determined by the individual's type, duration and severity of abuse and addiction.
