Mississippi only has about 100 drug and alcohol rehab programs throughout the state, serving roughly 6,000 people at any given time. Although there aren’t a lot of facilities, the upside is that a higher percentage of people receiving treatment in Mississippi are enrolled in residential/inpatient programs.
We work with people from Mississippi and across the nation to assist them in finding substance abuse treatment that is appropriate for their situation. We can help you find additional resources you’re looking for as well.
