Greene County is located in Arkansas, United States. It is included in Jonesboro–Paragould Combined Statistical Area, with Paragould being the seat.
According to the 2010 census, it had 42,100 residents. Back then, only a small number of those people had issues connected with drug use. However, since then, the numbers have skyrocketed. Now, every 17 residents in 100 people have reported using illicit drugs at least once in their lives. Out of them, 2-3 residents become severely addicted to substances, which leads to a national crisis.
For this, the Government is trying to take measures to reduce the number of addicts. Greene County rehabs have been created for this exact reason. Continue reading to learn about the programs offered.
Most treatment centers provide services for both addiction treatment and mental health issues. They also focus on dual diagnosis, OCD, anxiety, panic attacks, and so on.
Below you may find what options there are for drug and alcohol addicts.
The clinic provides services on an inpatient, also known as a residential, basis. It is for residents who have been abusing hard drugs for lengthy periods. Because of that, the situation gets completely out of control and only professionals can manage it.
During the recovery process, the patients reside there for a certain period. They may spend a few days or months there. On average, the stay period is 6-8 weeks.
Not very different from inpatient care, an outpatient plan is for less severe cases. It does not require overnight stays at the facility.
Patients typically meet for 1-2 hours daily for a therapy session per week. If one needs more intensive care, the sessions can take place for 2-3 hours each day.
Certain clinics in Greene County are deemed luxury or upscale. Usually, they tend to be more expensive than non-luxury facilities. The thing is that they focus on more individualized programs while furnishing better amenities and levels of care.

For a standard inpatient or outpatient program, the fees may sum up to $4,000-$7,000 for a 30-day program. Luxury services, on the other hand, may cost up to $15,000-$30,000.
Almost all the centers accept payment in cash. Medicare, Medicaid, and military insurance are also acceptable payment options.
No reasonable person would think that forcing someone to receive treatment is correct, right? Well, it seems so until a parent discovers that his/her child is also abusing drugs.
While it may seem discouraging at first, it is no news that many teenagers oppose entering such facilities. In most cases, they fear the process itself. It may be connected with scary stories or even having to give up their current lifestyle. Given that, the only solution left to a parent would be putting pressure on the little one. This approach, however, is only acceptable when the teen is younger than 18, and when one-on-one discussions have not been useful.
