Arkansas only has about 60 drug and alcohol rehab centers, which combine to serve around 5,000 people at a time throughout the year. Despite the low number of options around the state, the positive news is that there is a much higher percentage of people receiving treatment in Arkansas who are enrolled in an inpatient or residential program compared to most other states.
Like many other states in the area, Arkansas has seen its use of methamphetamine dwindle over the last decade, while prescription drugs and heroin have taken its place. Unfortunately that also means that the number of people stuck on drugs like methadone have increased, rather than more of them completing other types of programs.
We work with people from Arkansas and around the country to help you find drug rehab programs that fit your needs, whether you’re looking for something local or out of state, accepts your insurance or has payment plans.
