Utica Alcohol and Drug Rehab Listings
According to the New York State Department of Health Central New York, towns like Utica, NY have seen the number of opioid painkiller prescriptions increase drastically over the past few years. Prescriptions for hydrocodone rose more than 50 percent between 2007 and 2011 – from 181,993 to 274,293. Oxycodone prescriptions skyrocketed nearly 90 percent from 64,755 in 2007 to 122,415 in the same year. Across the nation, there were enough hydrocodone and other painkillers prescribed in 2010 to medicate every single American 24 hours a day for an entire month, and these days, drug overdoses kill as many Americans as motor vehicle accidents.
A Serious Problem
Abuse of prescription medications is a serious issue. Many people become addicted after taking medications for valid health reasons. Others get hooked after recreational use, thinking that these drugs are safer than illicit drugs like cocaine or heroin. For the loved ones of these individuals, it may not be easy to detect substance abuse, but there are often warning signs among individuals who are addicted to these and other drugs pointing to their substance abuse:
- Using drugs or alcohol to escape problems or deal with stress
- Neglecting children and family
- Relational trouble with family, friends or colleagues
- General decline in appearance
- Hiding the amount of alcohol or drugs being used
- Frequently asking for money
- Poor attendance or declining performance at work or school
