Ascension Recovery Services offers program development services for individuals and hospital systems that are creating substance use disorder treatment programs. One of the main questions that our clients ask is, “Which service should I offer?” 

To answer this question, it is important to understand which services are appropriate for an individual, the location of the services and a client’s budget. Seeking treatment is the first step in beginning the road to recovery for substance use disorder, but it can be confusing to know where to start. With different levels of care, it is necessary to understand which one is appropriate for an individual’s situation and needs. The continuum of care includes services such as:

  • Detox
  • Residential Treatment
  • Partial Hospitalization
  • Intensive Outpatient
  • General Outpatient 
  • Sober Living

Drug overdoses killed 63,632 Americans in 2016. Nearly two-thirds of these deaths involved a prescription or an illicit opioid.

Overdose deaths increased in every category researched for men and women, ages 15 and older, all races and ethnicities and across all levels of urbanization.

Death rates from overdoses involving synthetic opioids increased in 21 states, with 10 states doubling their rates from 2015 to 2016.

The highest death rates from synthetic opioids were in the following states:

  1. New Hampshire

  2. Massachusetts

  3. West Virginia

Fourteen states had significant increases in death rates involving heroin. The highest being:

  1. Ohio

  2. Washington D.C.

  3. West Virginia

Eight states had significant increases in death rates involving prescription opioids. The highest being:

  1. Maine

  2. Maryland

  3. Utah

  4. West Virginia

Sixteen states had significant increases in death rates involving cocaine. The highest being:

  1. Ohio

  2. Rhode Island

  3. Washington D.C.

More than 72,000 Americans died from drug overdoses in 2017, including illicit drugs and prescription opioids. This is a two-fold increase in a decade.

These statistics are alarming.

The most staggering increase occurred among deaths related to fentanyl and fentanyl analogs (synthetic opioids), which accounted for nearly 30,000 overdose deaths.

Sober Living Homes (SLH) are a pivotal part of the recovery process and extremely important to the long-term recovery of those who have gone through treatment for addiction. The value of sober living homes has been verified through several industry studies, and the combination of SLHs and Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs) is proven to have a high rate of success.
