Avondale is a city that is located in the state of Arizona. It is home to around 87,000 people as of 2019 according to the United States Census Bureau, making Avondale one of the larger cities in the state. But this can be a major drawback in a state like Arizona that has been struggling with increased rates of drug addiction and overdose since America’s drug epidemic began in the early 2000s. In 2019 there were 20.8 drug deaths for every 100,000 residents of the state according to a report published by America’s Health Rankings. This shows the people who the treatment system failed, or so it appears. But on closer inspection, many of these people who lost their lives to drugs never made it into treatment before it was too late. This is happening more and more, too. As drugs become stronger, and synthetics like Fentanyl flood America, we are seeing more and more deaths among new drug users. These may even be people who have not yet developed a physical dependence or addiction to the drug. Accidental overdose can be very hard to prevent, especially if you do not know that the person is using drugs. In early addiction, they will go to extreme lengths to hide their drug use so no one can interfere with it. This is why you must never ignore signs of drug use in a loved one. Act now before it is too late.
