Berkshire is a county that is located in the state of Massachusetts. Home to an estimated population of more than 124,000 people as of 2019 according to the United States Census Bureau, Berkshire is one of the smaller counties in the state. But even being small doesn’t exclude it from the consequences of addiction and drug overdose, something that has been a major issue for the state of Massachusetts since America’s drug epidemic began in the early 2000s. In 2019 there were 29.3 drug deaths for every 100,000 residents of the state according to a report published by America’s Health Rankings, a rate which was one of the highest of any state in the country for that time period. This shows exactly how many people did not get the help that they needed when it comes to drug and alcohol rehabilitation and detox services. Every single drug death was a life that could have been saved if the person had gotten the right kind of help for their needs at the right point in their life. But so many people never make it into treatment before their life is lost to drugs. In early addiction, it is not uncommon for the person to accidentally overdose before they were ever ready to get help. This is why you must never ignore signs of drug use in a loved one. Act now before it is too late to help them.
