Adams County can be found in the state of Pennsylvania. The county seat is Gettysburg. The county is home to a population of around 103,000 people as of 2019 according to a report from the US Census Bureau. In 2019 there were 35.1 drug deaths for every 100,000 residents of the state according to a report from America’s Health Rankings. This shows that there were likely 35 or more deaths from substance abuse in Adams County that year alone, which is terrible. Each drug death was someone that could have been saved if they had gotten the right kind of help from drug and alcohol rehabilitation and detox services before it was too late. But these people either never got help or did not get quality help before losing their lives to addiction. When a person first begins using drugs, they are much more likely to accidentally overdose. They have a much lower tolerance to drugs and may also misjudge dosing or misidentify the drug. They also will hide their addiction from anyone who would try to get them to stop. But there are usually signs of drug use that cannot be ignored. Never listen to advice telling you to wait until they are ready. That is a recipe for disaster. You must act and intervene before it is too late.
