Substance abuse has been present for many years in Clarke County and the city of Berryville, and in fact, it has caused a great deal of harm within the community. The devastation it has brought on in the community only further proves its presence in this area of Virginia. Substance abuse is a problem that should always be taken seriously, and these next statistics will show us specifically how much alcohol abuse has been affecting the county. First, there is the issue of excessive drinking, and in 2017, 17% of the county’s adult population reported heavy or binge drinking. This is the type of drinking that can cause a lot of undesired health problems, even in a short-term period, such as severe dehydration, lung infection, and low blood sugar, only to name a few. Alcohol abuse can also lead to fatalities, and between 2014-2018, 3 deaths were caused by alcohol-impaired driving, according to County Health Rankings, and this number accounts for 16% of the 19 driving deaths for this period. Alcohol addiction is a very serious problem as we can see from the previous statistics, and treatment is definitely essential when someone wishes to overcome such an addiction. This type of program will normally begin with a medical detox that will give the addict a safe and supervised space to come off the drug. Then, with the rest of the treatment, they will be assisted in finding the root causes for their addiction, so they can in turn find alternative solutions to dealing with their life struggles that don’t involve any drug abuse. Alcohol addiction can be overcome with proper treatment and the commitment of the addict.
