If you are suffering from addiction and/or alcoholism in West Virginia, Recovery Hub can help you find the right drug rehab today! WV may have the oldest population of any state, but it is its younger population that bears the brunt of drug addiction. The state ranks among the top fifth tier of drug problems among young adults (those aged 18-25), specifically for: cocaine use in the past year, use of any illicit drugs other than marijuana, and overall drug dependence.
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.
