Casa Grande is a city that can be found in the state of Arizona. It is home to an estimated population of around 58,000 people as of 2019 according to the United States Census Bureau, Casa Grande is one of the larger cities in the state. But one drawback to being sizeable is the risk of increased rates of drug use and drug overdose. These have been major issues across the state of Arizona since America’s drug epidemic began at the turn of the millennium. According to America's Health Rankings, in 2019 there were 20.8 drug deaths for every 100,000 residents of the state, a rate which shows exactly how many people didn’t get the vital services they needed. But this isn’t always because the rehabilitation system fails them, as many of these people never even made it into treatment before their life was lost to drugs. When people first start using drugs, they do not think they are addicted yet. They think that they can stop and will stop soon, but just not yet. They also have a very low tolerance to drugs and have little experience with safe dosing. And with drugs becoming more and more potent as synthetic versions are developed, it is more and more likely that someone in early addiction will accidentally overdose before they were ever ready to get help. This is why you should never ignore signs of substance abuse in a loved one, no matter what.
