South Dakota Opiate Addiction Treatment
In South Dakota, prescription drug abuse is somewhat of a pandemic just as it is in many other areas of the United States. Many prescription drugs that are being widely abused and which are causing a need for addiction treatment are opiates such as Oxycontin, Oxycodone, methadone, and Roxicodone. While heroin is not as much of a concern in South Dakota as it is in many other areas, there is still widespread use of this drug in the state and the need for rehabilitation programs that can effectively treat those who become addicted is always on the rise.

SD TREATMENT FACTS
- One of the best ways to support your loved one while they are in recovery is to show them you are proud of their decision to quit their opioid abuse and to celebrate the milestones they reach.
- Unfortunately, an addicted individual will sometimes act in ways they never would have before, including lying, stealing, and breaking the law in order to obtain and use more of the drug.
- According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, behavioral therapy helps patients change their attitudes and behaviors and increase their knowledge of healthy life skills.
- Medication maintenance can be associated with some side effects, like any drug, but these can usually be controlled by asking your doctor to change your dosage.
South Dakota TREATMENT STATS
