Substance abuse is an extremely serious issue that can and has caused a great deal of devastation in Culpeper County and its county seat, the city of Culpeper. For us to truly understand the substance abuse problem in the area, we will be looking at some recent statistics. For instance, excessive drinking was reported by nearly one-fifth of the adult population, 19% to be more precise. Heavy alcohol use can lead to many health problems in a long-term period, such as anemia, malnutrition, and an increased risk of stroke or psychosis. Staying on the same subject, alcohol-impaired driving caused 7 deaths between 2014 and 2018, which accounts for 21% of all driving deaths for these years. But this is not the only problem that has led to fatalities, as for 2016-2018, the drug overdose mortality rate was of 52 deaths per 100,000 population, according to County Health Rankings. Drug and alcohol addiction can affect anyone, no matter what situation they may find themselves in. For example, with the amount of stress and pressure they are under, law enforcement officers can undoubtedly struggle with substance abuse issues. They face unimaginable situations every single day and work so hard to serve and protect their community, and sometimes this pressure can be hard to handle, which may bring them to turn to alcohol and/or drugs. There are treatment programs for law enforcement, and they have substance abuse specialists that are able to assist them through their recovery process. This program can help them find out what caused or contributed to their addiction, so they can discover other ways to deal with their different life and work problems without resorting to substance abuse. They spend their day protecting their community, so they definitely deserve to get help if needed.
