Vermont ranks higher in opioid addiction than most other states. This lush, densely forested northeastern state has seen over a 20 percent jump in drug overdose deaths in recent years, with a large percentage of those deaths being accidentally caused by opioids. Heroin use is also on the rise throughout the Green Mountain State, since many opioid addicts frequently turn to heroin when prescription opioids become too difficult to obtain.
Other substances commonly abused in Vermont are alcohol, marijuana, and cocaine. The state in its entirety suffers from especially high drug abuse rates compared to the rest of the U.S. But Vermont detox centers can help its residents overcome physical dependency on these substances, and achieve long-term sobriety.
Vermont detox centers use a combination of therapies to help you safely withdraw from alcohol and substances with a reduced risk for complications. Medications, acupuncture, and daily massage have been proven effective at relieving drug cravings and withdrawal symptoms.
