The Impact of Addiction in Wisconsin

Where are Drug Treatment Centers in Wisconsin?

Home to 15.000 lakes, streams and rivers, Wisconsin is the ‘Badger State’ Kayakers will swim around the Apostle Islands in Lake Superior and surf on Lake Michigan. Cyclists have selected 80 routes in the rail-to-trail network, including the first on the continent. The Milwaukee Museum of Art is a stunning mix of three iconic structures designed by three renowned architects.

Wisconsin has some of the highest rates in the United States for both adolescent and adult substance abuse. Since 2009, the state has been experiencing the same escalating rates of drug abuse and addiction as the rest of the country. Statewide, the major concerns are the misuse of prescription painkillers and the escalating number of deaths due to alcohol-related liver disease.

Each year, approximately 13.56% of the state population uses illegal drugs, and another 5.83% abuse alcohol. Consequently, 17.32% of all deaths between 2008 and 2017 were drug and alcohol-related–a statistic more than 4.5% points above the national average.

Wisconsin has a lot to enjoy but in Wisconsin there are many areas within dealing with drug and alcohol abuse.

Local and national groups such as D.A.R.E. and the Alliance for Wisconsin Youth have responded by creating state-specific programs in an attempt to improve awareness of the problem. Programs throughout the state also allow individuals to receive the treatment they need to live a life of sobriety. Furthermore, Wisconsin substance abuse prevention and outreach programs work to reduce drug abuse across all age groups. These include ‘Healthies Wisconsin 2020’, changes in the Wisconsin Good Samaritan Law in 2014, and a ‘Statewide Standing Order for Naloxone.
