Drug abuse in Texas

Texas has a population of 29,527,941 people. The most recent data from the 2021 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) found that 2,405,000 people over the age of 12 had abused illegal substances in the past month, around 8.14% of the population. 2,188,000 reported marijuana use in the past month and 3,477,000 in the past year. The report also found that 337,000 Texas residents had abused cocaine in the past year, 337,000 had abused meth, and 877,000 had abused prescription pain medication. 121,000 people over the age of 18 reported using heroin in the last year. Those reporting opioid misuse including heroin, painkillers, and fentanyl in Texas totaled 909,000 people.

Different substances pose unique threats to the health and well-being of people in Texas. In our state, the growing dependence on substances has increased significantly over the past few years. Some of the main substances are methamphetamine, cocaine, and heroin, among different age groups. [1]

Alcohol abuse in Texas

Alcohol misuse was also reported in Texas with 11,641,000 people over the age of 12 saying they had used alcohol in the last month and 5,878,000 reporting binge drinking. The perceived risk of people over 12 years of age indulging in problematic alcohol use (5 or more drinks twice a week) in a month was 11,685,000 people.

Overdose deaths in Texas

In 2021, Texas saw a total of 4688 recorded drug-related overdose deaths. This includes those that were accidental or unidentifiable but excludes those that were related to suicide or homicide. This puts the overdose death toll in Texas at 15.9 people per 100,000. The total number of alcohol-related deaths (including overdose and all other causes) was 3540 or 12 per 100,000 people.

Texas addiction treatment statistics

The NSDUH report also recorded the total amount of substance abuse disorders in Texas and those who currently require treatment. The report found that 3,994,000 were recorded as having a substance use disorder (SUD) and 2,940,000 had an alcohol use disorder. 618,000 people were recorded as having an opioid use disorder including those with painkiller, heroin, and other opioid-based drug use disorders. There are also many who have been diagnosed with or reported a substance, illicit drug, or alcohol use disorder that require rehab treatment and are not receiving it. The report found that 1,544 people in Texas needed treatment for illicit substance abuse, 2,875,000 required treatment for an alcohol use disorder, and 3,542,000 needed treatment for a diagnosed substance use disorder.

The government of Texas has been active in taking several measures to improve substance use. It inaugurated the program 'Recover-Oriented System of Care'(ROSC). This system promotes person-centered care and rehabilitation from substance use disorder. Such programs also offer behavioral intervention with the aim of changing the lifestyle, thought process, and feelings of an individual related to substance use. In Texas, there is also medication assistance to treat this disorder. The institutions are there to curb the misuse of substances and save the lives of people. [1]

What treatment options are available in Texas?

There are a lot of treatment options available in Texas. Most centers provide typical services like detox assistance, and inpatient and outpatient programs, while some do offer more specified methods like Christian drug rehabs. Finding interventions most suited to individual cases will help alleviate the pressure that comes with recovery.

  • Residential treatment & inpatient rehab – this type of treatment is ideal for those suffering from extreme symptoms related to substance abuse. Staying within a monitored facility will prevent individuals from re-engaging in an environment that allows access to the substance involved. It is also a safer space to go through detox, under the care of professionals and lifesaving equipment. Inpatient and residential rehab are quite similar but differ in intensity.
  • Outpatient rehab – places that offer inpatient service typically have outpatient treatment too. With this, clients have more independence over their treatment, regarding frequency and commitment to the recovery process.
  • Christian drug rehab – people who seek faith-based interventions might suit Christian drug rehab, as it integrates religion in their substance abuse treatment program. This is done alongside usual rehabilitation plans.
  • Gender-specific treatment – this was developed to address different addiction experiences between genders, largely considering the major dissimilarities of why and how individuals abuse substances.
  • Substance-specific treatment – facilities that treat specified substance addictions. Beyond drug abuse centers, there are also alcohol rehabs in Texas that have specialized treatment programs.

How do I pay for rehab in Texas?

Some people cite the lack of funds and resources as a reason to not seek help with their addiction. This concern is perfectly valid, but delaying treatment for substance abuse will prove to be detrimental as time passes. People can opt to get treatment through self-funding; it is less complicated, though it does put the brunt of expenses on their shoulders.

Private health insurance makes addiction treatment in Texas more affordable, plus has the advantage of in-network connections through the insurance provider. Some health/insurance providers may help by adjusting treatment fees based on the financial situation, called sliding-scale fees, making the cost more feasible for clients.

Some rehabs in Texas accept Medicaid insurance, perfect for those without private insurance. However, not all facilities take Medicaid, so it’s advisable to check before acquiring their services.

What are common drug addictions in Texas?

The most common substances abused in Texas are marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, and heroin. These four have topped reports in previous years, followed by other opioids like Fentanyl. Methamphetamine has continuously been the biggest drug threat in the state and is still rising in numbers. The prevalence and continuous rise of meth abuse have led to comprehensive drug rehabs in Texas.

How do you know if you need addiction treatment?

It’s difficult to recognize an addiction problem until rock bottom is hit, at which point, individuals will have lost so much in their life before receiving treatment. Some lose money, cut relationships, and drop their responsibilities before realizing the problem. To avoid this, it’s best to identify the issue before it becomes too big.

The most obvious factors are the inability to refrain from using the substance in question, developing tolerance towards the substance, and experiencing withdrawal when going without it. There is a criterion for addiction that may help people identify the severity of their behavior. Consult a professional to get an official diagnosis.

Government assistance for addiction treatment in Texas

The Texas Health and Human Services (THHS) department has a service called Outreach, Screening, Assessment, and Referral (OSAR) designed to help people who are unable to pay for rehab. It may include detoxification, outpatient rehab, psychiatric treatment, etc. This service has limited availability, and some individuals may be prioritized based on a criterion. Some priority markers for those with addiction are the following:

  • Teenagers diagnosed with Substance Use Disorder (SUD), aged 13 to 17 years
  • Individuals referred by the Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS), admit within 72 hours
  • Those evaluated as high risk for overdose, admitted within 72 hours
  • Pregnant individuals, admit within 48 hours
  • People who consumed substances through injection, admit within 14 days

This department also has mental health crisis hotline numbers posted on its website, collating lifeline numbers for different Local Mental Health Authorities (LMHA) and the counties served across the state.

The THHS partners with services and rehabs near Texas to provide these functions.

Questions on Finding Treatment in Texas

Our dedicated team is committed to providing you with informative and supportive answers

How long does rehab treatment take?

The average inpatient treatment program lasts between 30 and 90 days but outpatient and aftercare services may be longer.

How do I pay for rehab treatment?

Rehab facilities accept a wide range of payment options including health insurance, self-funding, grants & scholarships, and Medicaid/Medicare.

How do I choose the right rehab in Texas?

Speaking to a physician or healthcare expert can help you identify the severity of your substance use disorder and a suitable treatment option. You can then search our directory for a center that best meets your needs.

Can I get mental health treatment during rehab?

Yes, many rehab facilities offer treatment for co-occurring substance use disorder and mental health conditions. The provider will discuss your medical history with you before being admitted to assess if you require dual diagnosis treatment.

What treatment medications are used during rehab?

Substance use disorders may require different medication-assisted treatments depending on the substance being abused and the severity of the addiction. For opioid use disorders, suboxone, buprenorphine, and methadone are often used during detox and aftercare, while those with an alcohol addiction may receive Antabuse.

Can rehabs in Texas give out my information?

No, The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a federal law that prevents a patient's private health information from being shared with another party without their consent including patients attending rehab treatment.

What is a rehab like?

All rehab facilities operate differently and treatment settings can alternate what a day-to-day schedule will look like. Read here to find out more about a typical day in rehab.

Does my health insurance cover rehab?

Yes, almost all health insurance providers will cover the cost of substance use disorder and addiction treatment under their plans, as well as other mental health conditions.

How much does rehab cost in Texas?

Rehab treatment costs can vary greatly; with outpatient detox programs costing around $1,200 and residential inpatient services costing over $10,000. Rehab costs can almost always be covered partially or wholly by health insurance and many centers accept other payment options depending on your circumstances.

When should I seek help for addiction?

There are many indicators that you or a loved one may have a substance problem. Read our guide on the warning signs of addiction for more information or take our self-assessment.

How do I get a loved one to go to rehab?

While it’s good to share your concern for the person's well-being and health, it’s important to understand that they may not be ready or willing to get help. Most of the time, going to rehab needs to be a voluntary choice (unless court-ordered) so you cannot force a loved one into rehab.

What should I bring with me to rehab?

Each rehab center has its own set of rules and policies about contraband items, so check with the facility before you pack your things. There are also some items you may need to bring with you for admission, including a photo ID and a copy of your health insurance card, as well as clothing for several days and hygiene products.

Do I need to go to rehab for detox or can I do it alone?

If you experience signs of withdrawal when you miss a dose or stop abusing a substance, it is important to seek help at an inpatient medical detox center. Certain substances such as alcohol or benzodiazepines also pose additional health risks when use stops and medical supervision is needed to avoid serious complications.

Will I lose my job if I go to rehab?

No, The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) protects individuals who are attending rehab from discrimination in the workplace, meaning you cannot be fired for seeking substance use disorder treatment.

Can I go to rehab if I’m pregnant?

Yes, many rehab facilities specialize in treating expecting mothers; ensuring both mother’s and baby's health are taken care of alongside treatment for substance use disorders.

Are cellphones allowed in rehab?

While you can bring your phone with you to rehab, almost all residential facilities will ask you to hand it over along with other valuables during the admission process.

Can I still work while in rehab?

While going to rehab won’t affect your employment status, almost all facilities do not allow remote working during treatment. This is to ensure patients are free from outside distractions and can focus on healing.

Can I visit someone in rehab?

Yes, though all rehabs will have their own visitation policy and most won’t allow outside visits within the first 14-30 days.

Additional Resources for Addiction and Mental Health Treatment
Paying for Addiction Treatment

Addiction treatment costs vary greatly depending on if it's a luxury rehab center, whether it’s an inpatient or outpatient treatment program, the type of treatment required, and whether the program accepts insurance or is self-pay only. There is a wide range of different options for addiction treatment, and most people can find an option that fits within their budget. While treatment for an addiction can be costly, it is also an important investment in your health, your life, and your future, and one that will likely pay you back for years to come. Most addiction rehabs accept three types of payment options; insurance, financial aid, or financing.

Addiction Treatment Medication

Detoxification can be an arduous process as withdrawal symptoms can be very uncomfortable and for some substances, even life-threatening. Doctors in inpatient and outpatient rehab will sometimes prescribe medication to ease the process of withdrawal, reduce cravings, and support early addiction recovery efforts.

Drug and Alcohol Detox

Often referred to as 'the cleanse', detoxing from drugs and alcohol can be dangerous, causing both physical and psychological stress and discomfort. Depending on the substance you are detoxing from and how much and how often you used it, you may benefit from a medically supervised detox. Most times, this is provided in an inpatient treatment facility and the aim is to help keep you comfortable while the drug leaves your system.

Inpatient And Residential Rehab

Attending an inpatient addiction treatment rehab center provides those suffering from addiction with a safe, structured, drug-free environment where they can begin the process of recovery.

Outpatient Rehab

Outpatient rehab and treatment can be a good choice for people who are ready to get help with a substance use disorder, are not in the severe stage of addiction, and who need the flexibility that an outpatient program can offer.

Alcohol, Substance Abuse, and Co-Occurring Disorders

Over half of people who suffer from a mental illness disorder or a substance abuse problem will have the other at some point in their lives.

Helping a Family Member or Friend

If someone you know and care about, be they a friend, coworker, or family member is suffering from an alcohol or drug abuse problem it can be hard to know what to do or how you can help. Not only can their behavior have a negative impact on your life as well as theirs, but it may also be difficult to confront them about their problem. Ultimately, whether someone decides to get help with an alcohol or drug abuse problem is up to them but being able to support and talk to someone about their problem may give them the incentive they need to seek help. Still, confronting them the wrong way can make them defensive and less likely to listen or be receptive to what you have to say. This article will provide some tips on what to do and say (and what to avoid doing or saying) to someone who is struggling with an addiction.

Support Groups

In addition to rehab, detox, professional therapy, and prescription medication, people with addictions frequently turn to each other, seeking emotional support, accountability, techniques for managing urges, and sober communities. Mutual aid fellowships, such as the 12-step programs pioneered by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and secular alternatives, offer free, community-based, confidential meetings to help people reach recovery and stay on the right path.

Addiction and Mental Health

Substance abuse disorders and mental health conditions frequently co-exist, as people turn to addictive substances to self-medicate, and those substances cause and aggravate existing mental health symptoms. Substance abuse and mental health disorders may also share the same underlying causes, including genetics and early trauma.

Therapy For Addiction

Typical psychosocial therapies that are used for addiction include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing (MI), and contingency management (CM). These may be augmented by other types of therapy, including pharmacological therapy and holistic therapies.

Relapse Prevention

Relapse is one of the most difficult parts of recovery to manage and is often a constant battle for those who are overcoming addiction. While avoiding relapse will often be a lifelong challenge, it does not need to be an ordeal and there are many ways to avoid substance misuse.

Sober Living Homes

Quitting alcohol and drug abuse can be a challenging, arduous process. If you or a loved one has completed their stay at an addiction treatment center and detoxed effectively, it’s time to take the next step towards sustaining sobriety. Losing the accountability that the structure of a treatment program provides, you may worry that your recovery could be impeded. A sober living home may make the transition back to normal life easier.

Remote Addiction Treatment

Remote addiction treatment allows patients to connect with healthcare addiction specialists remotely and has shown high success rates. This guide discusses different types of online treatment and how they work, rural-specific challenges, and where to find the best remote healthcare providers.
