Drug Addiction in West Virginia

The number one drug problem in West Virginia is opiate painkillers, such as Oxycontin, Percocet, and Vicodin. Methadone, which is traditionally used to wean off opiate addiction, is also being diverted and abused. In 2010, 1,600 of WV’s primary admissions into drug rehab were for painkillers alone. This is more than admissions for every single other drug combined, including marijuana, cocaine, heroin and others.

As people from West Virginia know, addiction comes at a heavy price. At 22.4 deaths per 100,000 people, WV’s drug mortality rate is nearly twice that of the national average! Overdoses have especially hit hard in former coal counties such as McDowell. This county’s rate of 38.3 per 100,000 people gives it the fifth highest rate of drug-induced deaths in the entire country.
