Do You Need Addiction Help in Hawaii?
Is alcohol or drugs ruining your life? Are you sick of dealing with all the problems they cause? Are you worried about your future? Are you worried about someone you care about?
Whether the problem is with you, your spouse or your children, it’s time to stop worrying and get your life back.
What Drugs Send People for Addiction Help in Hawaii?
Hawaii has serious problems with several different drugs. And it’s one of the top ten states for drug abuse. So, it’s not surprising that you have a problem in your family.
You have probably already seen how drugs can hurt a family, even tear it apart, but things can be turned around with help.
Most people in Hawaii get addiction treatment for marijuana. That may seem strange – since marijuana is considered to be a fairly light drug that is not addictive. That may have been true years ago, but marijuana is about 5 to 10 times stronger than it used to be. Also, there are sometimes other drugs mixed with it. So it has become a pretty dangerous drug and is addictive.
The next biggest drug problem in Hawaii is stimulants. This includes methamphetamine – which can ruin someone’s body and mind very quickly, with sometimes irreversible damage – as well as amphetamines and prescription drugs like Ritalin and Adderall.
Ritalin and Adderall are especially common with students – Ritalin is known as legal cocaine.
Some people start taking Ritalin and Adderall for the symptoms of ADD or ADHD, but then they get addicted to them and can’t stop taking them.
Cocaine addiction is also a big reason people get treatment in Hawaii.
But the cocaine problem is not as common as heroin. Heroin addiction is a major problem, as is prescription drug addiction for drugs that are similar to heroin – called opiates – like OxyContin, methadone, oxycodone, hyrocodone, Vicodin, and other prescription painkillers.
Like Adderall and Ritalin, prescription painkiller addiction often starts with a prescription from a doctor after an accident, illness or surgery.
But not everyone started taking prescription painkillers for a real problem. In fact, nearly 5% of population of Hawaii take prescription painkillers just to get high.
With so many drugs available in Hawaii, there’s a good chance that you know someone who is taking them, and who needs help.
We can help you find the right drug rehab for your situation.
High School Drug Use in Hawaii
Latest reports show that 15% of students in grades 9 to 12 indulge in binge drinking (5 or more drinks in a row within a couple of hours), with more woman than men participating in this.
And 10% of high school students have used inhalants to get “high.”
For students between the ages of 12 and 17, 5% have used pain relievers for non-medical use.
And if Hawaii mirrors the rest of the country, 40% of high school students have tried marijuana at least once.
Can Addiction Help Services Help with Alcohol Abuse and Addiction?
Absolutely. And alcohol abuse and addiction is very common in Hawaii.
Not only do a lot of people drink frequently, about 25% of people in Hawaii binge drink – in other words, they don’t just have a beer or two at a time. In fact, when binge drinkers in Hawaii buy alcohol in bars, they average 6 to 7 drinks each time.
And some of them drive home.
Not only are they risking their lives, they’re risking the lives of everyone else on the road.
Even if they’re not driving, there’s a good chance they will injure themselves, get into a fight, or get involved in sexual activity that they wouldn’t do if they weren’t drinking.
Alcohol is a major reason behind spousal abuse, domestic violence, abused and neglected kids, lost jobs, and ruined relationships.
