Accomack County’s county seat is the city of Matomkin, and together they have been struggling with substance abuse issues for many years now. This has been causing a great deal of damage within the community, and it still is to this day. This is not the kind of problem that you can overlook or underestimate because it can get worse in no time. These next statistics will show us how present it’s been in the last few years. First, we have excessive drinking that was reported in 2017 by 15% of the county’s adult population, according to County Health Rankings, and this includes binge and heavy drinking. Alcohol abuse being this present, it has also caused some deaths recently. Between 2014 and 2018, alcohol-impaired driving caused 12 deaths in the county, which accounts for 36% of the 33 driving deaths for this period. Drug poisoning too caused some fatalities recently, with a drug overdose death rate of 13 deaths per 100,000 population for 2016-2018. For people who are struggling with addiction issues, the best option will always be for them to attend a treatment program. There are, for instance, outpatient programs that can be very accommodating. Since the person is not required to live at the facility, this means that even though they can’t put their whole life on pause, they can still get the help they need. This type of treatment will offer the same services as an inpatient program, simply not as intensively and without the residential setting. For certain people, this might be the best kind of treatment and might give them their best chance at making a full recovery.
