The Power of Acceptance: Embracing Change for a Brighter Future
Arizona rehab needs are skyrocketing in proportion to alcohol and drug problems in the state and around North America. What can I do about Arizona prescription drug abuse? Drug addiction is a disease that millions of people struggle with, and prescription drugs are quickly becoming the most popular and most deadly drug of choice for drug users young and old alike. But while prescription pills are very popular all over the US and Canada, it’s in Arizona that the rate is particularly high. In fact, of all 50 states in America, Arizona has the 6th highest rate of prescription drug abuse. Nationally, the Western states tend to have higher rates of prescription pill abuse versus other areas of the United States.

ABC15 Arizona cited The National Survey on Drug Use and Health to say that “5.66 percent of Arizona residents ages 12 and above were misusing prescription drugs in that period, compared to a national rate of 4.57 percent.” That’s slightly more than 1% of all Arizona residents, which might not seem like a lot, but it represents around 65,000 people. That’s 65,000 people who are addicted that shouldn’t be, if Arizona were in line with the national rate. On the other hand, these new numbers show a drop since 4 years ago. According to ABC15 Arizona, “the rate of abuse dropped at both the state and national levels from the previous reporting period in 2009-2010, when the rates were 6.31 percent and 4.89 percent, respectively. Arizona fell from third- to sixth-highest in the nation in the same period.” Click here to learn more about prescription drug abuse in Arizona.
