It ranks among the top 10 states for the highest levels of illicit drug use among persons age 12 or older in the past month. Its past-month rate of drug use is 1 in 10, which is higher than the national average. This high rate of use and abuse doesn’t come without a toll on society. Its mortality from drugs is also higher than the national average. In fact, at 15.5 deaths per 100,000 people, drugs in Washington are more likely to kill you than guns or car accidents.
The most commonly cited reason for treatment admission in Washington is marijuana addiction, followed by stimulants, heroin and opiates. In addition to demonstrating a high level of overall drug use, Washington also has one of the highest rates of marijuana use. At over 7,000 people, marijuana made up more than 1/3 of WA’s primary admissions into drug rehabs in 2010.
While marijuana remains a main concern, opiate addiction has quickly become a problem. It has one of the highest rates for of non-medical use of painkillers, such as OxyContin, Percocet, and Vicodin. An even more grave concern is heroin addiction, which is cheaper and becoming more available than pharmaceutical drugs, especially in major urban areas such as Seattle.
