WHAT IS ADDICTION?
KNOW THE FACTS
Since 2017, more than 56,000 Hoosiers have been served by Opioid Treatment Programs and now 1.6 million Hoosiers have access to addiction treatment through Medicaid.
As of August 2020, Indiana has nine counties with active syringe service programs and 13 counties with harm reduction programs.
Because recovery from addiction is a lifelong journey, Indiana has committed $1.4 million to expand recovery housing for Hoosiers dealing with substance use disorder.
Currently, there are 130 certified recovery residences in the state and counting.
Addiction to drugs, also known as substance use disorder, is a disease that affects thousands of Hoosiers. Those who are struggling with substance use disorder are unable to control their use of illegal or legally prescribed drugs. For many, addiction begins quietly. It may start with the recreational use of a drug. In the case of opioids and other painkillers, it may begin when a doctor prescribes a medication. Whatever the reason, once addicted, this disease affects a person's brain, and they will continue to use the drug despite repercussions.
Addiction is a disease but with support and treatment, there is hope.
