Washington Makes the Top 10: A Dubious Distinction Highlighting Drug Abuse and Addiction
Every year, the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) questions the country on their drug use and abuse habits, then compiles the results. In the 2007-2008, Washington State made the top 10 in a number of categories that documented drug abuse in residents over the age of 12, according to the White House, including use of marijuana and other illicit drugs in the past month and the abuse of pain relievers non-medically in the past year. Other Washington drug abuse statistics include:
- About 10 percent of Washingtonians reported abusing illicit drugs in the past month – 2 percent above the national average.
- More people died in Washington as a direct result of drug abuse than on average in the rest of the country.
- Marijuana is cited as the most common drug of abuse among patients seeking drug addiction treatment.
