Substance use disorders (also called addictions) are linked to the deaths of thousands of people across the United States each year. Whether one struggles with opioids, alcohol, or another substance, the impacts and challenges caused by chronic substance use and abuse at the family and community levels are staggering. Addiction is a brain disease that causes someone to crave uncontrollably and need to use substances (or engage in specific activities or behaviors) despite knowing it can lead to harmful consequences. Long-term addiction can lead to significant medical and mental health difficulties.
Smoking, alcohol use, and illicit drug use (combined) lead to the deaths of approximately 12 million people worldwide each year. This is a number that exceeds the lives lost due to all forms of reported cancer. On their own, drug and alcohol use disorders are linked to more than 350,000 deaths annually worldwide. More than half of the people who die due to drug-related overdose are younger than 50 and typically males.
In the United States, the statistics are equally as disturbing. At least 21 million Americans struggle with at least one addiction disorder, yet only 10% of those will ever receive addiction treatment. More than half a million Americans have died due to a drug overdose in the last decade. Recent data shows that alcohol and drug addiction cost the United States economy approximately $740 billion each year. Also, more than 90% of people who have an addiction began to experiment with drugs or alcohol before the age of 18. In the United States, the demographic most likely to use addictive drugs is individuals between 18 and 25.
Addiction is a disease that affects millions (even billions) of people throughout the world. The unfortunate element of addiction statistics is the inaccuracy of data. It can be challenging to provide accurate statistics for a societal problem that is illegal in almost every way. That said, it is reasonable to expect under-reporting of addiction among those who struggle. Although national and international numbers are high, it is essential to remember that addiction struggles are not only concerns outside of Missouri. Within state borders, thousands of people struggle with and lose their lives to addiction-related overdose each year.

Like many larger cities across the nation, statistics regarding drug and alcohol use in Jefferson City are part of the more extensive reports that include statewide data. The state of Missouri has not been spared the challenges of ongoing opioid use and abuse. Across Missouri, about 375,000 adults over the age of 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 indicates 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 demographic continue to rise.
The opioid epidemic does not discriminate. It can affect anyone regardless of gender, age, race. Opioid addiction is a struggle for people in Missouri’s metropolitan, urban, and rural areas. Statistics show the effects of opioid addiction (and many other drugs) spans generations. Children born to addicted parents are often born with medical struggles linked to drug exposure during pregnancy. Another challenge faced by children is Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS). NAS occurs when an infant is exposed to addictive substances before birth or just after. In 2018 nearly 500 infants born to Missouri parents met the diagnostic criteria for neonatal abstinence syndrome at birth. Also, another 1800 newborns were potentially exposed to addictive substances, including opioids, in utero.

The journey to sobriety from drug or alcohol addiction is often not a straight path. Depending on the substance or substances you use, there are often several bumps in the road along the way. If you or a loved one are ready to put drug or alcohol addiction in the past, the first step is acknowledging your struggles with addiction and choosing a Jefferson City drug rehab to help you.
Suppose you are addicted to specific substances like benzodiazepines (benzos), opioids, or alcohol. In that case, it is vital to choose a rehab like Grand Falls Recovery, where medically supervised detox services are available. The process of detoxing from these particular substances can be complex and sometimes lead to significant medical challenges. As part of a medically supervised detox program, highly skilled addiction treatment professionals 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.
Once detox is complete, you can continue at Grand Falls Recovery with the therapeutic portion of your recovery program. The therapeutic interventions used and the duration of your treatment program will vary based on the severity of your addiction, your history with addiction treatment and relapse, and whether you have any co-occurring mental health or medical conditions that must be addressed as part of your individually designed treatment plan.
When choosing a drug and alcohol rehab, it is vital to consider your specific treatment needs and the benefits or services you need most to achieve lasting recovery. By choosing a program where all of your needs, including detox, evidence-based therapy, dual diagnosis treatment, and aftercare planning, are met in one location, you can ensure a seamless transition from one stage of treatment to the next.
