Pennsylvania Drug Rehab Centers


An unfortunate reality of our nation is that addiction rates have continued to skyrocket over the years.  This is due to many different factors.  Including such things as a focus on punishment over treatment, more powerful drugs, and media glorification of partying and drugs.  And one of the largest barriers in battling addiction has been the fact that prescription rates for powerful opiate painkillers have increased several times over and this is contributing to more people using them and ending up addicted.  Pennsylvania has been seeing the heavy effects that painkillers have produced upon it’s residents.

Overdoses Increasing All Over Pennsylvania


In Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania for instance, they had been increasingly seeing deaths from opiates.  According to an NBC article about the county, “Last year there were 137 fatal drug overdoses — more than half of them the result of heroin laced with fentanyl — in a county of just 318,000 people.”  At first, a coroner in the county was quite puzzled by certain bodies coming in because they were not testing positive for drugs, even though appearing to be overdoses.  But once test was tweaked to detect fentanyl, the rates of overdose increased significantly.  Fentanyl is an extremely powerful drug that is about 25-50 times more potent than heroin, and was the drug that killed Prince last year.  Fentanyl has been arising more frequently all around the nation. With how powerful it is, many addicts are moving toward using it for more potent highs.  

The problem is obviously not solely in this county alone, and in reality the whole state is dealing with the epidemic of addiction and overdose.  Data from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention shows that there were 3,264 overdose deaths in Pennsylvania in 2015, and that this was a 20.1% increase from the previous year.  With increasing rates like this, there are massive amounts of struggling people out there that need to receive addiction treatment.  Especially with something like opiates, which require a proper detox to safely get off of them.
