For the past couple of years, Wisconsin has had the highest rate of binge drinking among adults in the country, according to the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS). Not only are adults binge drinking, but teens are also partaking in this risky behavior. A recent study found that one out of four Wisconsin high school students binge drinks.
Heavy drinking has contributed to the increase in alcohol-related hospitalizations. In 2010 alone, there were over 48,000 alcohol-related hospitalizations .
Heavy alcohol use and binge drinking is often a sign of addiction. Over 45,000 residents sought treatment for alcoholism in 2011.
Alcohol abuse has taken a ginormous toll on Wisconsin. Not only has alcohol abuse claimed many lives, it has also caused the state billions of dollars in healthcare and criminal justice costs lost productivity, and motor vehicle crashes.
Prescription Drug Abuse
Like many other Midwestern states, Wisconsin has seen a spike in prescription drug addiction. Xanax, Valium and Adderall are some of the most commonly abused prescription drugs in the state.
With Wisconsin being home to over 85 colleges and universities, the state has placed a great emphasis on academic excellence. The pressure to succeed has caused many college students to abuse Adderall (commonly referred to as the smart drug). Many students are under the impression that Adderall is safe to take without a prescription. However, the drug is highly addictive and abuse of it can result in an overdose.
The surge in prescription drug abuse, especially among painkillers, has caused Wisconsin to implement a prescription drug monitoring program (PDMP). While the PDMP has resulted in a decline of prescription drug abuse, it has also led to more Wisconsinites turning to hard drugs.
Addiction professionals and law enforcement have found that prescription drug abuse is often a precursor to heroin addiction. According to Milwaukee law enforcement, 70-80% of residents abuse prescription opiates before turning to heroin, a cheaper and more potent alternative.
Heroin overdoses are on the rise in Wisconsin. In Milwaukee County, the most populous county in the state, heroin-related overdoses surpassed cocaine-related deaths in 2012. Unfortunately, this trend does not look like it’s going to end anytime soon. In 2013, fatal heroin overdoses in the county increased by 34 percent from the previous year. Along with Milwaukee County, Waukesha, Racine and Washington counties have also seen their fair share of fatal heroin overdoses.
Wisconsin residents can avoid fatal overdoses by receiving treatment for heroin addiction. In 2010, only 1,300 people sought heroin treatment at community-based rehab centers, even though thousands of people are addicted to the drug.
If you or a loved one is addicted to heroin, call us today at (414) 216-0251. With our support and guidance, you can beat your addiction.
Marijuana is frequently abused throughout the state, and it is the most commonly abused drug by high schoolers. Although many people think the drug is harmless, many residents suffer from marijuana addiction. In 2009, over 2,700 people received marijuana treatment at Wisconsin rehab centers.
Addiction specialists have seen a decrease in cocaine use among Wisconsin high school students. However, there are still ‘pockets of higher use,’ according to the Wisconsin Department of Health. Adults between the ages of 18 and 25 abuse the drug more than any other age group.
Regardless of the substance that Wisconsin residents are addicted to, recovery is achievable.
