Delaware Drug Use Trends
Delaware is located in the Northeastern portion of the U.S., and is bordered to the south and west by Maryland, to the north by Pennsylvania and to the northeast by New Jersey. Delaware is located in a region of the U.S. that is the sixth least populous but sixth most densely populated. Like many if not most other states in the U.S., the state of Delaware has experienced an increase in the prevalence of substance abuse in recent years. And like all other states in the nation, this of course points to the need for greater awareness, education, prevention, and treatment of the substance abuse problem in the state of Delaware before it worsens even more so.
In Delaware, an estimated 12% of all youths per year in between 2008 and 2012 reported using illicit drug use within the month prior to being surveyed. And an even more alarming fact is that only 1 in 4 12- to 17-year-olds in Delaware in 2011-2012 reported they perceived great risk from smoking marijuana once a month, a rate higher than the national rate, and a statistic that About 3 in 5 (60.3%) 12- to 17-year-olds in Delaware in 2011- 2012 perceived no great risk from drinking five or more drinks once or twice a week. Because the risks associated with smoking marijuana and drinking alcohol often include developing other more serious substance abuse problems as they are known gateway drugs, this is something that parents must be keenly aware of so that education and early intervention is possible when possible.
Between 2008 and 2012 in Delaware, nearly 8% of persons aged 21 or reported heavy alcohol use within the month prior to being surveyed. One of the most prevalent drug abuse problems in the state currently, and is a problem seen throughout the nation, is non-medical use of prescription drugs. Delaware has the 10th highest drug overdose mortality rate in the nation, with the majority of such deaths directly associated with accidental overdoses from prescription drugs. The number of prescription drugs overdose deaths in the state of Delaware has actually doubled since 1999, mirroring similar outcomes nationwide from prescription drug abuse. Additionally, past month use of marijuana and other illicit drugs are higher than national rates with cocaine and heroin in particular being to blame for such high rates among adults in the state.
In 2012, nearly 60% of Delaware residents enrolled in substance abuse treatment were there for a drug problem only, 14.4% were in treatment for an alcohol problem only, and over 26% were in treatment for problems with both drugs and alcohol. Among residents aged 12 or older with alcohol dependence or abuse between 2008 and 2012, only around 5,000 (9.5%) received treatment for their alcohol use (meaning 89.5% did not). Among residents aged 12 or older with illicit drug dependence or abuse between 2008 and 2012, only 21% received treatment.
Delaware residents are faced with many serious substance abuse problems which not only threatens their quality of life, but threatens their lives in general because so many people are losing their lives to addiction each year in Delaware and nationally at alarming rated. Delaware residents have a chance to take over the power that they once relented to drugs and/or alcohol over their lives by receiving effective drug treatment that can put an end to the problem once and for all. Trying to kick the habit outside of a drug rehab environment is often not a successful effort, and it can very often be a very dangerous undertaking as well. Withdrawal symptoms from alcohol in particular and prescription drugs can actually be life threatening on some occasions when not intervened upon by treatment and medical professionals, so this should always be kept in mind when trying to decide if rehab if right for you or someone you care about. It isn't just a matter of having the willpower to quit, because drugs and alcohol taken over a person's will to the point where they simply can't have control over this decision even if that wish to. This is why rehab is the best answer, and comprehensive rehab programs which help through detox and much more are going to be the most effective approach to kicking any type of substance abuse problem.
In the majority of instances, resolving any type of substance abuse issue isn't necessarily going to be quick or easy if it is being done the right way. Becoming abstinent and getting through detox withdrawal should only be the first brief step of any truly comprehensive drug rehab program in Delaware, which should have the end goal of resolving the true causes and triggers of the person's substance abuse problem so that it is never a problem for them again in the future. This is of course best accomplished in an environment that is conducive to complete focus, where one is surrounded by a sound support system that has every tool and technique accessible to them to help clients through this often difficult but rewarding process. The most proven treatment options in Delaware are programs which provide an inpatient or residential stay of at least 90-120 days, most of which are covered through private health insurance making treatment available for virtually anyone in the state.
