Where We Serve
Millions of Americans face struggles with drug and alcohol addiction every year. Recent statistics from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health conducted in 2019 estimate that more than 22 million American adults over eighteen have a drug use or alcohol use disorder. In addition to the adults, almost a million adolescents and teens under age eighteen also meet the diagnostic criteria for a substance use disorder outlined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). Unfortunately, recent events, including the COVID-19 pandemic, have only worsened struggles with drugs and alcohol for people of all ages and demographics.
In addition to worries about the number of individuals who face the psychological and physical damage caused by chronic drug and alcohol use are concerns about the number of people who need yet fail to seek treatment. For decades now, the rate at which those who could benefit from potentially lifesaving addiction treatment receive the help and care they need to get well has remained low. Recent data from the substance abuse and mental health services in administration indicates that less than 10% of those who need addiction treatment services will ever get the help they need.
The reasons behind why people choose to forego mental health treatment at a drug rehab in Chesterfield, MO, are varied. Some people fear the stigma that often accompanies friends or loved ones learning about their substance use struggles. Others fear struggles with their employer or losing their job if they have to take time off to go to rehab. Still, others have family, personal, or community obligations that limit their ability to be away from home for the time it takes to detox, complete therapy, and achieve sobriety.
Unfortunately, as addiction treatment rates remained stagnant, overdose and death rates related to substance use disorders continue to rise each year. Chesterfield and the state of Missouri are no exception to these struggles. Across the state of Missouri, thousands of people struggle each day with addictions to alcohol, opioids, benzodiazepines, and many other drugs that are difficult to quit without comprehensive addiction treatment help.

Grand Falls Recovery Center
Chesterfield is located in Saint Louis County, Missouri. As of the end of 2020, the area had a population of just under 48,000 people, making it the 14th largest city in the state of Missouri. Like many medium-sized cities, Chesterfield struggles with poverty and issues related to drugs and alcohol. Like many other cities of similar size, drug use and overdose data for Chesterfield is often included in larger, more complex reports that detail statewide addiction statistics. Reports published by the Missouri Department of Health provide statewide data instead of details related to specific towns or cities. Although this makes it difficult to determine drug use and overdose data related to Chesterfield specifically, it suggests that the area and the state of Missouri have not been spared from the opioid epidemic and other impacts associated with systemic alcohol and drug abuse problems.
Across Missouri, about 375,000 adults over eighteen have a substance use disorder. Like many other states across the nation, the rate of death linked to opioid use and abuse has continued a steady climb across all areas of the state. In 2018, as many as one out of every 56 deaths in Missouri were linked to opioid use and opioid overdose. Throughout 2018, nearly 1200 people in Missouri lost their lives to opioid-related overdose. The most recent National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) shows approximately 17% of Missouri youth under age 17 have at least one substance use disorder. In fact, young adults in the state, individuals between the ages of 18 and 35, have the highest rates of substance (both drug and alcohol) use across the state, and drug use rates in this age group continue to rise.
Unfortunately, the impacts of addiction continue to grow in Missouri and many other states across the nation. This consistent growth also comes a significant and often overwhelming burden on local and state healthcare systems. Statistics reported by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services suggest that the cost of emergency room admissions between 2016 and 2018 that were directly connected to opioid abuse cost the state of Missouri approximately $117. Most of this expense was covered by government-funded insurance programs and other government-supported sources.
We Care Abuot Your Recovery
Our Programs & Services
Finding the right rehab is vital to achieving lasting sobriety. Although all licensed drug and alcohol rehabs provide quality care designed to help, patients overcome addiction, not all offer care for all treatment needs. Because treatment centers vary widely in their treatment models, amenities, benefits, and services, it is essential to consider your treatment needs before choosing a rehab to help you overcome addiction.
First, consider what you need to begin your sobriety journey. Part of this requires understanding if detox is a necessary first step in treatment. If you are addicted to alcohol, opioids, or benzodiazepines, the process of withdrawing can be challenging. For some, withdrawal from these substances leads to complex and potentially dangerous withdrawal symptoms that are best managed with the help of medical supervision. During a medically supervised detox program, highly skilled addiction treatment professionals at Grand Falls Recovery Center will support you throughout the stages of detox. Depending on the severity of your addiction, this could mean being there if you need support or providing comprehensive medical aid, such as monitoring your vital signs and delivering medications to help reduce the severity and intensity of specific withdrawal symptoms. Most importantly, thorough medical detox means having medical and mental health professionals available should you need support and guidance during detox.
It is also important to consider the therapy model that may help you meet your treatment needs. There are many models of addiction treatment, each used in various ways to help you learn about addiction and how to safely manage triggers after treatment ends. Relapse prevention education is also a vital part of many therapy models. However, how the therapy sessions address these critical treatment components will vary. Because some treatment models may be more beneficial for you than others, it is important to learn about the evidence-based and alternative therapy models offered at a Chesterfield rehab to ensure your needs are met.
Finally, the best rehab programs include aftercare planning as part of their therapy programs. Aftercare is vital to ensuring program graduates can transition successfully from the therapy environment to their home without sacrificing the care and support they may need to stay on track during the early days of recovery. Aftercare planning helps you leave treatment with ongoing care components like ongoing counseling, scheduled medical appointments, and information about peer support groups in your area in place.
