Call for Help (703) 828-1626
Virginia, known as the Commonwealth, borders Maryland and Washington D.C. While Virginia is known for its coal mining, the Blue Ridge Mountains, several rivers and the Chesapeake Bay, the state has a series of problems with substance abuse.

Substance Abuse in Virginia
Substance abuse in the southwest region of Virginia is growing more so than the rest of the state. With drug rates up by 41 percent since 2007, southwest Virginia has the highest drug overdose rate in the state.
Over a four-year period from 2008 to 2012, about 160,000 Virginians age 12 or older used illicit drugs. Consequently, treatment admissions continue to rise at Virginia rehab centers. About 41.7 percent of people were in treatment for problems with both drugs and alcohol.
In Virginia, the use of prescription painkillers, heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana continues to soar.
Prescription Drug Addiction
Despite the recent crackdown on prescription drug abuse and efforts to curb overprescribing by doctors, opiate addiction is still a public health concern for Virginians. Prescription drug addiction is particularly a huge concern in the southwest region of the state.
According to the state examiner’s office, there were 185 fatal prescription drug overdoses in 2012 in the southwest region of the state. Opiate painkillers such as oxycodone (OxyContin, Percocet), hydrocodone and depressants such as benzos (Xanax, Valium) are the most commonly abused prescription drugs.
Due to the high value of prescription drugs, they are usually sold or traded for other drugs. As a result, some areas have seen a steady increase in pharmacy robberies, property crimes, violent crimes, and other drug-related criminal offenses.
Because of the recent crackdown on prescription drugs and the increase in price, many Virginians have turned to heroin as the cheaper, more potent drug.
Heroin is widely available in Virginia. In the Richmond area, heroin has steadily gained a foothold among the middle class in the suburbs. What once was a drug primarily abused in urban inner cities, heroin is now all over the state and used more and more by middle- and upper-class young adults.
Heroin addiction in Virginia is so pervasive that the number of young adults dying from overdose between the ages of 25 and 34 is soaring. The number of heroin overdoses jumped from 101 in 2011 to 135 in 2012 and 197 in 2013.
If you or someone you know is seeking treatment for prescription drug abuse or heroin addiction, please call us today at (703) 828-1626. Our admissions counselors are available 24/7 to confidentially chat.
Other Commonly Abused Drugs
Alcohol. Alcohol use in Virginia among people age 12 or older is slightly higher at 52.37 percent than the national average at 51.23 percent. In 2010, about 43 percent of the population from age 18 to 25 reported binge drinking in the past month.
Crystal meth. Meth is used primarily in rural areas of Virginia and the mountainous regions. The number of meth lab seizures rose from 19 incidents in 2008 to 201 incidents in 2011. In 2012, there were 221 meth lab seizures.
Cocaine. Crack cocaine is abundant in the cities, particularly in Richmond, Roanoke and the Tidewater area. It’s most common among young people who are between the ages of 18 to 25.
Marijuana. Over 13 percent of teenagers 12-17 and nearly 27 percent of young adults age 18 to 25 report marijuana use in Virginia. This is higher than the rate of alcohol use or other illicit drugs. Synthetic marijuana, weed mixed with other chemicals and herbs, is gaining popularity as people find ways to strengthen the potency of marijuana.
