The Oregon Substance Abuse Disorder Research Committee recently released a report indicating the state was affected by drug and alcohol addiction. With 1 in every 10 Oregon residents having the problem, the state spends about $6 billion each year to manage the menace.
The report also showed that 1 in every three Oregon residents had a close relative or friend with a drug abuse problem. The state’s local affiliate of the National Drug Control Policy in 2017 reported that meth was the illicit posing the most significant threat. It was the most seized drug by police, and its preference is because it can be smoked, injected, or eaten.
Other illicit drugs used in the state include opioids, marijuana, cocaine, and heroin. Opioid overdose and alcohol abuse have destroyed numerous homes and careers. 16% of the population had severe drinking problems in a survey conducted from 2006 to 2012. Binge drinking causes1,302deaths in Oregon each year, and the problem is prevalent even among teenagers.
In 2016, more than 9% of the addicts in Oregon had limited access to treatment. This represents close to370,000people, a number which prompted the state’s Governor Kate Brown to declare the problem a public crisis.
