The Impact of Addiction in Ohio

Ohio Drug Rehab and Inpatient Alcohol Rehabs

Cleveland sits on the shore of Lake Erie, tucked between the rough valleys of the river and the steep, forested hills. Columbus is host to the Ohio State Fair and Schiller Park, host to Shakespeare in the open air. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a historic museum that recognizes great artists such as Elvis Presley. Cincinnati is a perfect town for craft breweries and art galleries, and the Short North Arts District is a must-see place for art lovers. The Appalachian Mountains lie along the eastern frontier and provide opportunities for hiking, fishing and boating.

Ohio is currently suffering from a drug abuse problem that is costing thousands of its residents their lives every single year. Opioids, particularly Fentanyl and heroin, are the leading drugs in the state. The number of Fentanyl and heroin users has only increased in recent years due to the high prices of prescription opioids.

Of course Ohio has a lot to enjoy but some of these areas are plagued by drug and alcohol abuse.

In 2017, the most common drug found in overdoses in the state of Ohio was heroin. However, this drug was quickly surpassed by Fentanyl and the number of Fentanyl-related overdoses has only been increasing since. At one point, opioids caused such a high rate of overdoses in Ohio that cold storage units and trailers had to be converted into makeshift morgues.

The opioid epidemic has become so severe that it has even been referred to as a mass fatality crisis by various media outlets in Ohio. During the Trump Administration, it was also requested by the Drug Commission sector of the White House that the President declare this a state emergency.

Worst Drugs in Ohio

  1. Opioid-related overdose rates in Ohio are by far some of the highest in the country. This number increased by almost 800% from 2003 to 2015. Due to the many overdoses, a record amount of Ohio minors have entered the foster care system after losing their parents to opioid-related overdoses.
  2. For years, cocaine use in Ohio was associated with violent crimes. While more people have begun using cocaine in recent years due to the widespread availability and low cost, it is still the drug most often associated with violent crimes.
  3. For some time, marijuana was the most abused illicit drug and it is still one of the most common drugs in Ohio. The abuse rates are steadily increasing every year and one of the reasons for this is the legalization of medical marijuana in 2016.
  4. Methamphetamine use, abuse, and prevalence in Ohio is especially dangerous as they are readily available. The state ranks at number 7 in the United States for top producers of this drug.
  5. Even though the alcohol abuse rates in Ohio are not that much higher than the overall rate, it is still a troubling statistic for the state. Due to the amount of alcohol use and abuse, alcohol-related vehicle deaths are higher than the national average.

Helpful Advice on Selecting a Center

Your sobriety is very important that is why it is so important to choose the right Ohio rehab. The right program will make it much more likely that after returning to life, you will complete the program successfully, leave the program compassionately and maintain your sobriety. However, the sheer number of options available means it can be hard to make a choice and the sad truth is that quantity does not always equal quality.
