Pasco is the county seat of Franklin county. It is part of the Tri-Cities region – a mid-sized metropolitan area in Washington State. Its beautiful landscape and the annual events organized here make Pasco an attractive city, both for living and for visiting. In this article we will study the challenges and possible solutions for Pasco drug treatment.
The city of Pasco and Franklin county are one of the few regions in Washington State that have a relatively lower level of substance abuse. There are 12.1% of adults in Franklin County that are binge alcohol users. This percentage is less than in Okanogan, Jefferson, Pierce, and King counties.
However, CDC data show that, similar to other counties from Washington State, the substance abuse mortality in Franklin County has been increasing between 1999 and 2015.
According to the University of Washington, in 2013 the Franklin county’s opiate death rate (<4 per 100,000) is much lower than the state’s average (8.6 per 100,000). However, Franklin County has more opiate deaths than Garfield and Columbia counties.
A low substance use rate implies a low rehab admission rate. Thus, the statistical data of University of Washington show that in 2013 the publicly funded treatment admission rate in Franklin county was insignificant. It was less than 43 people per 100,000 in comparison with the state average (176 per 100,000).
There have been some breakthroughs on the national level as well. Last year, Congress passed the 21st Century Cures Act and the CARA (Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act), which allocated more than $1 billion in an effort to aid treatment efforts around the country.
