For the last several decades the drug crisis has been intensifying in the United States and there are now an average of 40,000 drug fatalities in the country each year. This is the highest rate of drug fatalities that any country has reported and the number of drug users the US sees every year greatly surpasses the number of drug deaths. As these types of spikes in addiction and drug deaths continue, many smaller places throughout the country are now dealing with a rise in addiction rates including in places such as Barron County, Wisconsin which has Rice Lake as the largest city within that county. The state of Wisconsin has seen a significant number of drug users and this has impacted the number of drug deaths the state sees which is now at an average of 18.9 drug fatalities per 100,000 people, according to America's Health Rankings. Substance abuse has created many problems for several countries and states, but it also creates a wide range of problems for drug users. There are many mental and emotional challenges that drug users often deal with during addiction and at times, these challenges are what led to the addiction in the first place. In order to fully end the addiction, both the physical and mental aspects of the addiction must be addressed and handled. At different drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs, drug users can receive assistance during the entire recovery process to ensure that they achieve sobriety.
