About Mountainview Recovery

Mountainview Recovery provides multiple levels of care to help guide you through every step of drug rehab & substance abuse treatment. Our substance abuse treatment and drug rehab center offers personalized care for our family of patients. Our unique recovery center setting allows our patients to unplug and focus on their recovery in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains!

Substance abuse treatment, per drugabuse.gov, is intended to help addicted individuals stop compulsive drug & alcohol seeking and use. Substance abuse treatment can occur in a variety of settings, take many different forms, and last for different lengths of time. Because drug addiction is typically a chronic disorder characterized by occasional relapses, a short-term, one-time treatment is usually not sufficient. For many, substance abuse treatment is a long-term process that involves multiple interventions and regular monitoring.

There are a variety of evidence-based approaches to treating substance abuse. Substance abuse treatment can include behavioral therapy (such as cognitive-behavioral therapy or contingency management), medications, or their combination. The specific type of treatment or combination of treatments will vary depending on the patient’s individual needs and, often, on the types of drugs they use. 

Treatment medications, such as methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone are available for individuals addicted to opioids, while nicotine preparations and the medications varenicline and bupropion are available for individuals addicted to tobacco. Disulfiram, acamprosate, and naltrexone are medications available for treating alcohol dependence, which commonly co-occurs with other drug addictions, including addiction to prescription medications.

What Is Substance Abuse?

Per WebMD, substance abuse is when you take drugs that are not legal. It’s also when you use alcohol, prescription medicine, and other legal substances too much or in the wrong way. Substance abuse differs from addiction. Many people with substance abuse problems are able to quit or can change their unhealthy behavior. Addiction, on the other hand, is a disease. It means you can’t stop using even when your condition causes you harm.

Substance Abuse Addiction Quick Facts

  • According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), 19.7 million American adults (aged 12 and older) battled a substance use disorder in 2017.
  • Almost 74% of adults suffering from a substance use disorder in 2017 struggled with an alcohol use disorder.
  • About 38% of adults in 2017 battled an illicit drug use disorder.
  • That same year, 1 out of every 8 adults struggled with both alcohol and drug use disorders simultaneously.
  • In 2017, 8.5 million American adults suffered from both a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder, or co-occurring disorders.
  • Drug abuse and addiction cost American society more than $740 billion annually in lost workplace productivity, healthcare expenses, and crime-related costs.

Causes of Addiction

  • Genetics, including the impact of one’s environment on gene expression, account for about 40% to 60% of a person’s risk of addiction.
  • Environmental factors that may increase a person’s risk of addiction include a chaotic home environment and abuse, parent’s drug use and attitude toward drugs, peer influences, community attitudes toward drugs, and poor academic achievement.
  • Teenagers and people with mental health disorders are more at risk for drug use and addiction than other populations.

Demographic Specifics Regarding Addiction

Per AmericanAddictionCenters.org:

Adolescents (aged 12-17):

In 2017, approximately 4% of the American adolescent population age 12 to 17 suffered from a substance use disorder; this equals 992,000 teens or 1 in 25 people in this age group.

About 443,000 adolescents age 12 to 17 had an alcohol use disorder in 2017, or 1.8% of adolescents.

An estimated 741,000 adolescents suffered from an illicit drug use disorder in 2017, or about 3% of this population.

Young adults aged 18-25:

About 5.1 million young adults age 18 to 25 battled a substance use disorder in 2017, which equates to 14.8% of this population and about 1 in 7 people.

About 3.4 million young adults age 18 to 25 had an alcohol use disorder in 2017, or about 10% of young adults.

About 2.5 million young adults had an illicit drug use disorder in 2017, or about 7.3% of this population.

Heroin use among young adults between 18 and 25 years old doubled in the past decade.

Two-thirds of the senior citizens over the age of 65 who struggle with alcohol use disorders developed the disorder before age 65.

Between 21% and 66% of elderly individuals battling a substance use disorder also suffer from a co-occurring mental health disorder.

Men vs. women:

In 2017, about 9.4% of men and 5.2% of women age 12 and older had a substance use disorder.

Asian Americans had the lowest rate of substance use disorders at 3.8%.

Criminal justice/employment status:

Almost twice as many people who are unemployed struggle with addiction than those who are full-time workers, CNN Money reports around 17% of the unemployed and 9% of the employed population struggle with a substance use disorder.

Of the 2.3 million people in American prisons and jails, more than 65% meet the criteria for addiction.

Around 75% of individuals in a state prison or local jail who suffer from a mental illness also struggle with substance abuse, and the opposite is also true.

When I came to Mountainview I was lost and in need of help. I gave this program a chance to teach me about my addiction... and how to obtain sobriety. It did just that and much more. The program, the facilities, the staff and the other addicts that i resided with were exactly what I needed to achieve sobriety for the first time in 11 years. I highly recommend this rehab to anyone who is struggling with their addiction. Thank you again Mountainview for giving me my life back and allowing me to become who I am meant to be. I will always cherish the times there.Love, Camoread more

I hate the way things turned out for me with mountain view because I was looking forward to the opportunity to go into... this facility. My wife had discovered the facility online and was excited about me going because they seem to be very professional and on top of their game when it comes to rehabilitation and mental health services. She spoke with the man named Jordan who had said everything up when he discovered that we had really good medical insurance he went right to work for us. After speaking with him and explain to my situation he shared with me a few things that we would have to do that we're kind of shady to manipulate the system in order to get my insurance to be able to pay. The manipulator that I am I was eager to participate but also concerned at the same time. So I made sure that I recorded all her phone calls. And I did as I was told. Well I was at the detox center in English mountain a completely different facility which I later discovered Jordan had a special special interest in I had a complication with a counselor there. The counselor had violated a HIPAA rule and cause problems for me. When Jordan didn't discovered this haven't had personal dealings with accounts for he chose to punish me by telling me that I had to wait 2 weeks at that facility the detox facility before I could come and begin my 30-day program at mountain view. Now I'm sitting in a motel room riding a review not sure what I'm going to go to next. And in fact I feel like I'm at my last straw. This may be it for me thanks a lot Jordan have a niceread more

All of the staff has been there for me, to answer any questions and help me with any issues I was dealing with. I thank God for these people and I'm sincerely thankful for all of the great relationships/friendships I've built coming into this programread more

Mountainview is an awesome recovery center. They truly care about the people in the program. When my sister decided... she wanted help, I researched several recovery centers and I knew Mountainview was the one for her. Jordan talked to me several times about the process and answered my calls/questions every time I called. I felt comfortable when we dropped my sister off, like we were leaving her with family. Mountainview gave her the help she needed to stop using drugs and take back her life. She completed the program at Mountainview over two months ago and she is still doing great. We are so proud of her, and could not be more grateful for the staff and program at Mountainview.read more

Deciding to go to Mountainview Recovery was one of the best decisions of my life. I was on a path to nowhere fast, and... I honestly would not be here right now if it wasn't for their program. From the very beginning, Jordan was wonderful to deal with. It did not matter what time of day it was, if you had a question, he was answering the phone. When I arrived at MV, everyone I met greeted me with open arms. They understood where I was coming from and genuinely cared about helping me get to where I wanted to be. I could not recommend this place anymore than I do. It is life changing and I am forever grateful to them ❤️❤️❤️read more

I transferred to Mountainview Recovery after a month of rehab at a different treatment center. I found that the two... centers were very different in their approach to recovery, as well as how the staff treated me as a client. From my very first day, I was treated like family at Mountainview. Through daily classes and psychotherapy, I gained the knowledge that I needed to maintain my sobriety. I came to understand why I had an addiction & eventually found the strength that I needed to return to my normal life without relying on a substance to escape. The house is beautiful & managed by staff that go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Food was provided with weekly gift cards so we could eat what we wanted. Most of us made meals together. We had meetings by the fire pit & went on weekly hikes. I am so thankful for the lifelong connections & friendships that I made at MVR.I am stronger & happier now than I have been in decades. I wake up each morning with purpose & a sense of hope. I give Mountainview so much credit for my recovery. I could have never done this on my own.read more
