Drug Rehabilitation Centers in Bullhead City, Arizona

Bullhead City is a city that is located in the state of Arizona. Home to an estimated population of around 40,000 people as of 2019 according to the United States Census Bureau, Bullhead City is one of the smaller cities in the state by population. But even being small does not mean the Bullhead City has avoided some of the serious drug problems that usually plague larger cities. Since America’s drug epidemic began in the early 2000s it has swept the nation including rural areas, increasing the rate of drug addiction and overdose death. 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, a rate which was even higher than the national average that year. This barely shows the tip of the iceberg when it comes to people who are not getting the help that they need from drug and alcohol rehabilitation and detox services. But this isn’t necessarily the fault of the services, since so many people lose their lives to drugs before ever making it into treatment. In early addiction, many people accidentally overdose before they were ever ready to get help. This is because they have a very low tolerance and synthetic drugs like Fentanyl have become very popular and are often mixed with other drugs. The user unknowingly may take something that could kill someone with twice their tolerance. This is why you should never ignore signs of drug use in a loved one as it may soon by too late to veer help them.
