Substance abuse has become a major concern for the United States for the last several decades and the opioid epidemic only intensified an already deadly crisis. With nearly 41,000 drug fatalities, the United States has earned its spot as the country with the worst drug crisis in the world. As pharmaceutical companies continue to profit off of drug addiction, the problem will continue to persist. This is causing even the smallest places throughout the country to begin experiencing addiction and drug deaths including Concordia Parish which has Vidalia as the largest city within that parish. The state of Louisiana has reported a rise in the number of drug-related deaths that are being reported in the state over the last six years and now exceeds the national average for drug deaths, according to America's Health Rankings.
