The United States has seen alarming rates of substance abuse compared to the rest of the world that seem to have a handle on this crisis. For several decades we have seen overprescribing from doctors, increased addiction, new drugs being created, and ultimately too many lives being taken caused by drug abuse. This is sadly becoming the norm for the entire country. The state of Pennsylvania has seen an increase in the number of drug deaths each year. Butler County is located within the state and contributes to the overall mortality rate every year. In the state of Pennsylvania, there has been an increase of 25 percent in the number of drug-related deaths reported over one years’ time, according to America's Health Rankings. This is being seen more and more in states aside from Pennsylvania.
