Drug And Alcohol Addiction In South Bend, Indiana

South Bend is a city in St. Joseph County, Indiana, that is not immune from the throes of the current addiction epidemic. Since 1999, drug overdose deaths in Indiana have quadrupled. Both inpatient and outpatient treatment centers in and around the area may be of assistance to those looking to overcome drug or alcohol dependency or addiction.

The Opioid Epidemic In South Bend

Local officials say overdose fatalities linked to Opioids, both prescription drugs and Heroin, are staggering. But there hasn’t always been the type of public response that might be expected in response to such striking numbers, like there might have been if the same number of people were shot and killed.

Although the Opioid epidemic has taken lives spanning all demographics, local data from St. Joseph County has indicated that white men between the ages of 20 and 54 made up the majority of the Opioid overdose deaths; most of those were attributed to prescription drugs and Heroin.

Treating Addiction In South Bend

Indiana University has committed $50 million to fighting the Opioid epidemic within the state. The effort, titled the “Grand Challenge,” has aimed to prevent and reduce addiction across the state by using resources at IU’s campuses (in partnership with IU Health, Eskenazi Health, and state officials). The challenge has concentrated on education, training, data collection, and analysis, as well as community and workforce development.

Indiana has also faced a shortage of professionals who are trained to treat substance use disorders. Indiana ranked 44th among states in the capacity to meet the medication-assisted treatment needs of their population. They also have had less than half the number of licensed clinical social workers needed to meet the state’s demands.

Because of this, it’s generally taken 1 to 3 weeks to get a patient into treatment for their addiction. A grant by the Fairbanks Foundation in the total of $376,000 began to support Ascend Indiana, a workforce development initiative for clinical social workers focusing on the treatment of substance use disorders. The key step to this initiative has been to help meet the statewide need for trained addiction specialists.
