Prescription Drug Abuse in West Virginia
Prescription drug abuse is plaguing the country, and West Virginia has not been able to escape it. The state currently has one of the highest rates for prescription drug abuse in the U.S. Prescription medications that West Virginians often abuse include OxyContin, hydrocodone and Xanax.
Adderall, Vyvanse and Ritalin are prescription stimulants that are frequently abused by West Virginia college students. Young adults take these pills in hopes that they will improve their academic performance. However, many students are unaware of the dangers of abusing these medications. Abusing these stimulants can result in severe side effects such as depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts.
Addiction to Pain Pills
In 2010, over 500 West Virginians died from a drug overdose; nine out of 10 drug overdoses in the state involve at least one prescription medication.
While prescription opiates (e.g. oxycodone, Vicodin) are abused crossed the state, law enforcement and medical professionals have seen a high concentration of drug overdoses in coal mining areas. Due to the physical stress that mining puts on the body, many workers suffer from back problems and chronic pain. Many doctors in the area have overprescribed miners, which has resulted in high rates of addiction and overdoses among them.
Many West Virginians that abuse pain pills eventually graduate to heroin. Whether its black tar heroin or cheese heroin, it is a cheaper alterative than prescription opiates on the street and it produces the same euphoria.
Drug rehabs in West Virginia have seen heroin admissions increase 300 percent between 2011-2013.
Unfortunately, many residents do not receive the help they need. From 2008-2102, there were over 200 fatal heroin-related overdoses.
If you or someone you know needs treatment for heroin addiction, call The Treatment Center now at (304) 207-9423.
Other Commonly Abused Substances
• Alcohol - Although alcoholism is not talked about as much as prescription drug abuse or heroin addiction, there are still many residents that are suffering from the disease. In 2013, there were 342 treatment admissions for alcohol at community-based rehab centers in West Virginia.
• Meth - Methamphetamine remains a public health concern in West Virginia. Police seized over 500 meth labs in 2013 alone. In hopes of decreasing meth abuse, many drug store chains have stopped selling single-ingredient pseudoephedrine medications in the state.
• Synthetic Drugs - Bath salts, Spice and other types of synthetic drugs are abuse most often by West Virginians in their teens and early 20s. These drugs are extremely dangerous because consumers do not know what chemicals manufacturers spray on them. These drugs often cause users to have psychotic episodes.
