Oregon Drug Overdose Deaths Reach Record Highs Leaving Rehabs To Save Lives

[Sunstone Recovery Center leads the way offering services to those in need of addiction care]

BEND, Ore. - Aug. 21, 2019 - PRLog -- In the wake of the opioid epidemic overdose deaths have become more frequent as national records become baselines that get beat year after year. The CDC and Prevention states show that mortality rate from overdose has risen 300% since 2005 to a staggering rate of 69,000. And where federal programs seek to buckle down on drugs, those already stricken with addiction are an ignored group due to the vindication of narcotics and the stigma of addiction. With statewide initiatives fighting drug abuse and addiction; rehab centers have had to expand offerings, increase outreach, and become beacons of recovery.

In Oregon the Opioid Epidemic has led to a steady increase in mortality rate, and even though initiatives have been set up to slow down the next generation of drug abusers those stricken by addiction do not have any facilitation on the state level. And even though the amount of Opioid prescriptions has been in decline the accessibility of Opioids on the street has made addiction to prescription drugs less common as those facing addiction move to street alternatives like heroin and its synthetic counterpart fentanyl.

One thing that most states struggle with is balancing the stigma with addiction and vindication of the problem. Those stricken by addiction are outcasted into the world with little help from governmental agencies leaving rehab facilities the only place to cater to those who face addiction. Sunstone Recovery Center (https://www.sunstonerecovery.com) is one of these beacons of light that offer those faced by addiction with the treatment, therapy, and counseling they need to get back into the world and back on their feet. With so many states taking future initiatives, and stigmatizing addiction today, rehab centers make a huge impact in healing those currently stifled by addiction to solve the problems today but also benefit the community. At SunStone Recovery they cater to those currently suffering and support their treatment efforts post recovery.
