Olympia, Washington State’s Capital city, is beset on all sides by awe-inspiring landscape. Mount Rainier, the Olympic Mountains and Puget Sound are just a few of its breathtaking features. Despite its striking natural beauty, Olympia faces a troubling drug and alcohol epidemic. Olympia Drug Treatment is available to help you or someone you love fight addiction.
Almost 1 in 5 (19%) adults in north-western Washington have used illicit drugs in the past year. This is a remarkably higher figure than the national average (14.7%). Sampled data shows us that in Washington, around 383,000 people either depend on or abuse alcohol. In addition, 159,000 people reported the use of illicit drugs on a regular basis.
Olympia is part of Thurston county and has had a drastic increase in drug-related deaths. The following chart shows data from the CDC that indicates a 10% increase in deaths from 1999 to 2015.
What’s worse is that 90% of both alcohol or drug abusers have not received any treatment for their dependence. For this reason, Olympia drug treatment centers are in high demand, and at Get Treatment, we can help you find the one that best suits your individual needs.
The good news is that in recent years, usage rates are decreasing on average. However, there are still hundreds of thousands that still need help. There are solutions! In the Olympia area alone, the government has allocated more than $2.6 million in grant money to help fund drug and alcohol treatment for addicts.
In the October 7th, 2016 edition of the Seattle Times, Gov. Jay Inslee “…announced executive actions aimed at preventing misuse of prescription pain pills, making more treatment available for those addicted, and improving emergency intervention to prevent overdose deaths.”
More than 23 million Americans have successfully handled their addictions. Get Treatment has selected several high-quality addiction treatment facilities, inpatient rehab centers, and drug and alcohol treatment centers in your area to help you get your life back on track.
