The town of Bath is located in Steuben County and is the largest settlement within the Village of Bath. The city is the county seat of Steuben County and is in the central part of the county northwest of Elmira, New York. The population of Bath is estimated at over 5,600 people with a median age of 44 years old and a rate of poverty of approximately 18% who are living below the poverty line. The town of Bath and the rest of the county are impacted by the social and economic problems connected to drug and alcohol abuse. For example, the New York State Department of Health reports alcohol-related motor vehicle injuries and deaths are at a rate of 44.4 per 100,000 population. The age-adjusted percentage of adults binge drinking during the past month was 18.8%. Binge drinking is a common underlying problem that many people struggle with and will then progress into more severe addiction issues. Many reasons lead people to drink heavily or abuse drugs. For example, according to a Steuben County Health Needs Focus Group, many residents experience indicators of poor environmental health, such as experiencing food insecurity. Approximately 25% of the population live within low income and in a food desert, meaning they are struggling with placing food on the table. Roughly 29% of residents in the county reported food insecurity within the past 12 months. Not knowing where your next meal is coming from or not being able to feed your family is a significant stressor in life. Problems such as these do cause people to consume more alcohol or abuse illicit drugs. When those problems occur, it is important for the person to seek help. The first step will be a drug detox program followed by a rehabilitation program at a drug treatment center. Something can be done about it!
