Bedford County is a county that is found in the state of Virginia. It is home to an estimated population of around 78,000 people as of 2019 according to the United States Census Bureau, making Bedford County one of the smaller counties in the state by population. But even being sparsely populated has not been enough to prevent to the scourge of America’s drug epidemic, which has been affecting counties across the nation since the early 2000s. From 2015 to 2017 there were 33 drug deaths in Bedford County according to a report published by County Health Rankings and Roadmaps. This number is just a glimpse of the people who are not getting the help that they need when it comes to drug and alcohol rehabilitation and detox services. Every drug death was potentially avoidable, even for those who had never been to treatment before. In early addiction, it is not uncommon for someone to accidentally overdose before ever being ready to get help. This is why you should never ignore signs of drug use in a loved one. Act before it is too late to do anything to save their life. Do not listen to advice telling you that they cannot be helped unless they are “ready”. This is false because intervention services exist, and they work. They save lives every day but cannot help if they are not utilized. Intervention is only used to get the person to accept help, at which point they go to treatment immediately.
