Finding Addiction Help in Nevada
We can talk to you right now.
What Drug Problems Can Be Treated with Nevada Addiction Help Services?
Facilities that offer addiction help in Nevada can deal with any drugs, as well as alcohol.
Nevada has a serious drug problem. It’s one of the top ten States for drug abuse.
The number of people taking drugs in Nevada is above the national average, and the number of people who die from drugs is almost twice as high.
This means that there is a lot of opportunity to take drugs – they’re easy to get, and tempting.
That’s one of the reasons why it’s so important to make sure that someone who is taking any drugs at all gets addiction help. Nevada treatment facilities can get them over their drug abuse problems before it gets really serious and dangerous. Most overdoses, accidents, deaths and other damage from drugs happen without warning – so it’s doubly important to handle drug problems as soon as you are aware of them.
Do People Seek Treatment for Some Drugs More Than Others in Nevada?
The most common drugs people seek help for in Nevada are stimulants. These are even a bigger problem than marijuana – the usual leader in drug abuse in other states.
Stimulants tend to keep you awake, increase alertness, boost energy and get you high.
They include methamphetamine – one of the most dangerous stimulants because of the disastrous effect it has on the brain, the central nervous system and the rest of the body – amphetamines like Biphetamine, Dexedrine, Adderall. On the street amphetamine are also known as bennies, black beauties, crosses, hearts, LA turnaround, speed, truck drivers and uppers.
Stimulants also include Methylphenidates like Concerta, Ritalin. Methylphenidates are also known on the street under the names of JIF, MPH, R-ball, Skippy and smart drugs.
You’ll notice that several of these are actually prescription drugs. Prescription drug addiction is very common. Sometimes kids are started on these drugs early in life, and they often continue taking them as they get older or switch to other drugs.
Putting young kids on drugs is dangerous for a number of reasons – not the least of which is that it makes them see drugs as a solution to their problems. They might have that viewpoint for the rest of their lives – instead of facing their problems and finding real solutions to them so they can make their life better, they take drugs.
Does someone you care about use stimulants? Whether they’re taking them to get high or to help them study, they are risking addiction.

What Other Drugs Lead to Needing Addiction Help in Nevada?
Next in line after stimulants and marijuana are heroin and other opiates.
Other opiates include prescription drugs like painkillers. OxyContin addiction, methadone addiction, addiction to Percocet, Vicodin and other prescription painkillers is very common.
When it comes to heroin, some people start off on heroin, but others start taking heroin after they’ve already become addicted to prescription painkillers. Once their prescription runs out, they can’t afford to get the painkillers from drug pushers, so instead, they get heroin – it’s cheaper and sometimes easier to get.
Prescription drug addiction is also common with Klonopin, Xanax and other sedatives, benzodiazepines, anti-anxiety drugs, and so on.
Do you need help with heroin or prescription drug addiction?
Not all Nevada addiction help facilities are experienced with prescription drugs, but our experienced counselors are familiar with all the facilities that are and which ones are most successful.
What About Alcoholics or Those Involved in Alcohol Abuse?
Alcohol is a very big problem in Nevada with people of all ages.
Young adults in Nevada have a serious alcohol problem. In fact, 4 out of 10 young people between 18 and 26 binge drink – which is drinking enough in one sitting to be really dangerous, and 20% say they actually depend on alcohol.
