The need for increased focus on sufferers, blighted by drug and alcohol addiction, to help facilitate them into drug rehab treatment centers has never been more acute than in the light of recent reports and studies that have drawn attention and awareness to what can only be described as an addiction epidemic engulfing the whole of the USA.
Sobering Numbers – In 1979 the number of people admitting to having used illicit drugs was 31.3%. By 2015 that figure had risen to 48.8%, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
Deaths from overdose rose from 17,415 in 2000 to 52,404 by 2015. In that time, 11 times more people were in prison due to drug-related offenses. In 1980 only 40.900 drug-related offenses were registered. By 2015, this figure had risen to 469,545 according to The Sentencing Project.
States with the highest percentage of teenage drug users are reported; Colorado, the District of Columbia, Vermont, Oregon and Rhode Island. However, this is by no means a young adult issue. It is becoming prevalent in older age groups as the Opioid & Opiate abuse reporting has recently indicated.
It is ironic, however, that even though President Trump and Congress have firmly highlighted opioid addiction and drug overdoses as a high priority issue, the biggest drug-related problems recorded across the whole of the USA are in fact to be found in DC’s own back yard.
The District of Columbia has long had a tradition and been the center of illicit drug trafficking and abuse and remains so to this day. Even with an enormous amount of regeneration projects, both commercial and residential, DC is still unable to shake its drug-related problems.
Treatments need to be made widely available to all for the sake of society and communities. How exactly Donald Trump, his administration, and Congress are able to markedly reduce the current drug use epidemic is anyone’s guess. However, it is certainly one that is to be addressed and should, therefore, be commended.
In the meantime, recently launched website ‘Drug Alcohol Rehab‘ aims to do its part in helping those in need of drug addiction and also alcohol abuse treatment.
