One of the biggest concerns for the state of Virginia concerning drug use is the growing abuse of pain relievers for non-medicinal purposes. Many people in Virginia, even young persons, are using the drug to get high. In certain parts of the state their use ranks above the national average. It is becoming a major problem and one that Virginia drug and alcohol centers are having to deal with. Individuals as young as 12 years old are beginning to abuse these types of drugs and it is becoming alarming.

While the use of pain relievers to get high is a growing problem, one that has been steady is the overuse and dependence on alcohol by residents of Virginia. This continues to be the biggest substance abuse problem in the state. Just a few years ago, 35,000 were in treatment for alcohol use.

Drug and alcohol abuse in Virginia is widespread. It doesn’t only occur in a concentrated part of the state. This means that everyone has to be on their guard against substance abuse, including parents, schools and churches. If everyone works together to get the word out on the dangers of drug abuse, then the incidences of drug and alcohol abuse should decrease. Virginia substance abuse centers are then in a position to deal with individuals who choose to ignore the warnings and use drugs anyway.

Drug and alcohol use studies performed in the Untied States have found that drugs are being used at a pretty even clip in most states. Sure, there are some places where use has increased or decreased. However, by and large, usage continues to be pretty steady. What is changing however, are the types of drugs that are being taken.

Virginia substance abuse rehabilitation centers, as well as those around the country, are treating an increasing number of individuals with addiction to pain killers, anti-anxiety medications and other prescription drugs. The use of methamphetamine is becoming a concern, ravishing some communities. Although marijuana has been around for a while, the rate of usage has increased a good deal. Virginia drug and alcohol rehab facilities have the difficult task of treat all of these addictions.

Depending on where one lives, the number of substance abuse centers may be increasing or decreasing. Often times, this has nothing to do with the rates of abuse in a particular state. Instead, financial woes make it impossible to stay open. This is unfortunate because there are plenty of people that need help.

The county, local, state and Federal governments do subsidize Virginia alcohol and drug facilities some, but more money could always be helpful. Subsidies are generally provided to make care be more affordable for the patient, not necessarily to keep a rehab facility open unless there is a shortage of them in a particular state where drug use is high.
