Addiction Treatment in Las Vegas

Known as Sin City, Las Vegas is notorious for allowing people to indulge in their vices. However, this reputation can be detrimental to individuals struggling with addiction since the city has high rates of cocaine, methamphetamine, and heroin usage. Launch Centers in West Los Angeles is only four hours away from Las Vegas and proudly offers addiction treatment to anyone seeking help.

The Need for Addiction Treatment

Addiction is a complex disease that affects the brain and alters behavior, which is why it’s important to seek professional help when battling addiction. Without treatment, addiction can lead to serious health problems, financial difficulties, legal issues, and relationship problems.

Alcohol Use – According to the CDC, Nevada is in the top 10 states for alcohol use rates, with 25.6% of Las Vegas metropolitan area residents reporting binge drinking in a National Survey on Drug Use and Health report, more than the national average of 23.2%. Drug treatment centers in Nevada reported 1,617 admissions for alcohol addiction, 15% of all admissions in the state.

Illicit Drug Use – Nevada is in the top 10 states for drug use, ranking third out of the top five states for having residents dependent on illegal drugs. Within the Las Vegas metropolitan area, 233,000 residents reported using illicit drugs (a study taken before the legalization of recreational cannabis in 2017).

Opioid Use – Between 2010 and 2015, Nevada had 2,752 opioid overdoses, ranking number four in the United States for fatal drug overdoses and number two for the use of oxycodone (Oxycontin) and hydrocodone (Vicodin).

Launch Centers Serves The Las Vegas Area

While checking yourself into a rehab center is a brave and necessary step, we know it can make people feel shame and embarrassment. Launch Centers located in West Los Angeles is proud to serve the Las Vegas area, helping residents who want help overcoming addiction away from their homes or places of employment. This helps individuals escape social or environmental triggers, while taking comfort in a discreet, safe, and comfortable space.

Launch Centers’ Services

At Launch Center, we offer various services to help individuals overcome addiction and mental health disorders, including detox, residential treatment, outpatient treatment, and sober living resources. Our programs are evidence-based, backed by research, and proven to be effective.


Detox is the first step in addiction treatment, and Launch Centers offers medically supervised detox. During detox, individuals will undergo withdrawal as their bodies rid themselves of drugs or alcohol. The medical staff at Launch Centers can provide medication to help manage withdrawal symptoms and ensure a safe and comfortable detox experience.

Residential Treatment

Residential treatment is an intensive program that provides 24/7 care and support. Launch Centers’ residential treatment program includes individual therapy, group therapy, and evidence-based treatments such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT).

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment is a less intensive program that allows individuals to continue their daily lives while receiving treatment. Launch Centers’ outpatient program includes individual therapy, group therapy, and medication-assisted treatment (MAT) if needed.

Sober Living

Sober living is a program that provides a supportive living environment for individuals in recovery. Launch Centers works closely with a local sober living program which includes housing, peer support, and access to resources such as therapy and support groups.

    This place changed my life! I’ve had good laughs, good cries, shared a lot of heart to heart moments and grew a loving bond with everyone at Launch Centers. I will always be grateful! I really do miss it time to time. I highly recommend Launch Centers!

  • Jenna S.

    Launch changed our lives. Our family had been battling for years to breakthrough to our brother. No amount of rehab or detox had made a difference. He was listless, lifeless and helpless. We feared for his life everyday. The spirit of, repetition in, core values, appreciation of life and dignity and respect that we found through Launch are unparalleled. I can say with full confidence that we never would have seen my “real” brother again if not for this truly magical combination. We were and still are especially grateful for his over-the-top therapist. Her commitment to his privacy and success coupled with her unwavering contact with any and all of us is what bridged our 3,000 mile separation from him.
