Kentucky is among the top ten states that are dealing with opioid-related overdose deaths. Immediate treatment programs and recovery plans are required to control this overdose to reduce the risks of further mental and physical health issues.
Drug addiction has hit Kentucky much harder in recent years. This might be due to the fentanyl, heroin, and prescription opioid painkillers like Vicodin and Oxytocin. Other than these substances, Kentucky residents are also facing addiction to benzodiazepines, cocaine, alcohol, prescription stimulus, and methamphetamine.
Rebuilding a stable and addiction-free community can take time and consistency. It is a collaborative effort that requires a proper treatment plan and recovery programs. At CommonHealth, we dedicate our services to the betterment of Kentucky.
