Vermont Drug Rehab Directory

If you are suffering from addiction and/or alcoholism in Vermont, Recovery Hub can help you find the right drug rehab today! Although this state has a very small population, right now it is facing a drug epidemic that is anything but small. Vermont ranks as the absolute worst state for multiple categories of drug use, especially drug use among teens. It is #1 in overall past-month use of illicit drugs, including marijuana and cocaine. However, the primary drug problem in marijuana is neither of these. Rather, it’s opiate addiction – both prescription painkillers and heroin.

Drug Addiction in Vermont

Vermont has been hit especially hard by the painkiller epidemic that’s been sweeping the nation. In 2010, painkillers alone were the number one reason for primary admissions into the state’s drug rehabs. These drugs include OxyContin, Vicodin, Percocet, morphine, Dilaudid, and others. Altogether, they account for over 60% of admissions, 150% more than marijuana addiction.

Vermont’s drug of choice is still painkillers, but heroin addiction is quickly gaining traction. Painkillers are becoming harder to obtain, and harder to abuse. Rather than get sober, opiate addicts are now turning to cheaper and more available heroin. In the past decade, the state’s rate of heroin addiction has exploded by 770%. As heroin and opiate addiction swells, so do overdoses and drug-related deaths. In 2013, Vermont had twice the drug mortality rate as 2012.
