Washington Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Centers and Programs

Drug abuse is a very big problem for the state of Washington. In a number of drug use and abuse categories, they rank above the national rates. Washington drug and alcohol rehab centers often bear the brunt of this drug and alcohol dependency because they are called on to provide treatment for these individuals.

One of the biggest areas of concern is the growing usage of methamphetamines and prescription drugs for the purposes of getting high. Methamphetamines have become a problem nationwide. These drugs are highly addictive, cheap, can be manufactured by the user and are available in very pure forms.

Meth can change a person’s physical appearance and emotional makeup in a very short period of time. It is not unheard of for a person to be unrecognizable to their family and friends after having being on meth for only months. The rate of admission into Washington drug rehab for abusers of meth has increased drastically in only 13 years. In 1992, only 1 % of persons admitted to Washington substance abuse programs were there for a methamphetamine addiction. In 2005, that number grew to 30%. As one can see, it has become a huge problem.

Prescription medication abuse is also on the rise. The most common type of prescription drug used for getting high in Washington are pain killers.

Alcohol and drug dependence continue to be serious problems in communities across the country. It seems that few, if any, parts of the country are immune to it. It is hard to determine why and may simply be cultural. While drug and alcohol abuse is frowned upon or at least viewed with sympathy, the use of those substances is often not. Therefore, you essentially have an ethos that says (without actually saying so but is still enforced) that it is ok to use and drink, just don’t become addicted. For some people that becomes impossible. They are not able to indulge themselves without becoming an addict. Washington substance abuse programs and those across the country are then charged with trying to help those individuals get clean. It is a tough job and a rough road to getting clean, but successes are occurring all over the country.

Prescription drug use, high potency marijuana, club drugs like GHB and methamphetamines are the new wave. An increasing number of people are taking these drugs and becoming addicted to them. In some communities methamphetamines are seemingly uprooting those places and making addicts out of nearly everyone who touches it. Its’ use is very alarming and damaging in some communities.

Prescription drugs are affecting many people for various communities, socioeconomic statuses and backgrounds. Doctor shopping, pharmacy break-ins and prescription forgery are on the rise. Marijuana use is also spiking, with many adolescents and teens, along with adults are smoking it in large numbers and quantities.

All of this makes it more important then ever to have effective, prepared and knowledgeable Washington drug and rehabilitation counselors and programs.
