Is Drug Addiction a Serious Problem in Ohio?
The number of people in Ohio using illegal drugs is about the same as the average for the rest of the country. But the number of people who die from drug overdoses, accidents and other drug-related causes are higher. In fact, the number of people who die from drugs in Ohio is even more than the deaths from motor vehicle accidents.
Marijuana is still Ohio’s biggest drug problem. But, although the number of people getting addiction help in Ohio for marijuana is more than any other single drug, opiates are really the biggest drug type causing a problem.
When you take all the different opiates – like heroin, OxyContin and other painkillers, methadone, and so on – people getting treatment for these drugs add up to even more than marijuana.
It’s a lot of people actually – nearly 10,000 for opiates alone. And nearly that many for marijuana.
Cocaine is not far behind opiates. Centers for addiction help in Ohio deal with thousands of cocaine addicts every year.
Also, in recent years, the number of labs making methamphetamine almost doubled. Methamphetamine addiction had slowed down in Ohio a few years ago because it became more difficult to get the main ingredient.
Now people who make meth are finding ways around that – so the number of labs has jumped right back up, and so have the number of people using the drug – so more and more available. And it’s easy to find – kids can even get it in the school yard.
Methamphetamine addiction is very serious. It can damage the body so badly that a person can be barely recognizable within a year. And much of that damage may be impossible to fix.
If you, a friend, or someone in your family needs addiction help in Ohio for any of these drugs, Addiction Help Services can help you find the right drug addiction treatment center.

Can Ohio Addiction Help Services Work with People with Prescription Drug Addiction?
Prescription drug addiction is the biggest drug threat in the U.S. right now – it’s growing so fast it’s considered an epidemic – and Ohio is no exception.
Most Ohio addiction centers have been dealing with marijuana, heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine and alcohol. But as prescription drug addiction, abuse and dependency has reached epidemic proportions, they are also getting a lot of experience dealing with prescription drug rehab.
In fact, some Ohio facilities see more people for prescription drug problems than for problems with other drugs.
And it’s not just adults who are taking prescription drugs without a prescription: One in ten high school students take sedatives, tranquilizers, anti-anxiety drugs like Xanax, painkillers like OxyContin and other addictive prescription drugs.
Prescription drug addiction requires a specialized addiction help. Ohio centers can help, but not all of them.

We’ll help you find the addiction help in Ohio that you need.
Can Addiction Help Services Help with Alcohol?
Absolutely. And as with all states, alcohol abuse is a major problem.
In Ohio, there are very frequent and heavy drinkers as well as binge drinkers – who may not drink every day, but they drink so much each time that it is just as damaging. And can result in alcohol poisoning that could send them to the hospital.
Does someone in your family have a problem with alcohol abuse? If so, we can help you find the help that will sort them out.
How Can I Tell If Addiction Help Services Are Really Needed?
If drugs or alcohol are causing problems in your life, then you need addiction help – whether it’s for yourself, someone in your family, or a friend.
If a person denies taking drugs, but they are changing – becoming more distant or secretive, changing their friends, being less conscientious about school, work or their lives in general, if they are no longer pursuing their goals and being active in the things they used to love – chances are they are involved in drugs.
They’re just too embarrassed to tell you about it, or they’re afraid of what will happen if you find out. And they don’t want to let you down.
They can also be afraid that if family members know about it, they’ll do something to try to make them quit.
But anyone who is on drugs or drinking heavily really does want to quit. No matter what they say about it, no matter how they justify it to themselves, it’s really the drugs and alcohol talking.
There’s no way that anyone wants their lives to be that way.
If you need help figuring out whether someone you care about has a drug problem that needs to be handled, call and speak to our experienced counselors.
They’ve seen everything, heard everything, they know what to look for, and they know what to do about it.
Can Addiction Help Services Help with Any Drug?
Absolutely. Everything from marijuana to methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin.
We can also help with OxyContin addiction or addiction to other prescription painkillers and other prescription drugs.
There is a serious problem with prescription drug addiction in Ohio. Prescription drugs need special treatment.
Not all facilities are experienced in dealing with prescription drug addiction and some of those drugs are very hard to kick.
But no matter what the drug is – even methadone, which is so hard to quit that a lot of drug rehab programs refuse to take people who use it – we can help you.
