The Impact of Addiction in Massachusetts

Drug Treatment and Rehab Centers in Massachusetts

In 1620 Massachusetts was the Mayflower’s destination and the Boston Tea Party venue. It is a gateway to New England, and Red Sox’s birthplace. For every week of the year Cape Cod has unspoiled beaches, new lobster and a golf course. Cultural scene in the area, including the Museum of Fine Arts and Tanglewood, is world class.

For decades, the rate of opioid-related overdoses in Massachusetts has been higher than the national average. In 2017, Massachusetts ranked in the top 10 of the states with the highest opioid overdose rates. Although Massachusetts still ranks quite high, this rate has been dropping significantly in most recent years. Due to the high costs of health insurance, more residents switch from prescription opioids to heroin every year. This has led to a rise in the overall rate of overdoses in the state of Massachusetts.

Of course a nice place to visit and live, but Massachusetts has drug abuse problems.

Each year more than half a million Massachusetts residents abuse alcohol while more than 1.5 million use illegal drugs. This drug and alcohol usage is the cause of over 8% of all deaths in the state. Due to the lack of education, homelessness, and unemployment, many of the addicted Massachusetts residents cannot get the help they need to battle their addiction.
