Drug Addiction in Kentucky

Kentucky’s primary drug problem is with substances categorized as “Other Opiates”, i.e. prescription painkillers such as morphine, hydrocodone, oxycodone, and oxymorphone . Kentucky is in the top 1/5 of states with the highest rate of non-medical painkiller use for ages 12 and older. Painkillers are the number one reason addicts seek Kentucky drug rehabs, making up 43% of treatment admissions. In 2010, about 4,750 addicts were admitted into drug rehabs for painkillers alone.

Xanax has also become another drug of concern in Kentucky. In 2012, Xanax was responsible for more drug overdoses than anything else. It is often used with other drugs, especially other depressants such as opiates or alcohol, which greatly increases the risk of overdose. Addiction to Xanax and similar drugs is also deadly because of its withdrawal, which can induce seizures and other health risks. This creates a double-edged sword for addicts: they can die both from addiction and from trying to get off the drug.
