For the last several decades there have been several increases in the number of Americans that not only have a drug or alcohol addiction but also the number of people that are dying every year as a result of this deadly epidemic. There are much smaller cities and towns that are seeing even higher rates of addiction and death than some larger towns such as DeSoto County, Florida which has Arcadia as the largest city within the county. The state of Florida has reported that over the last three years a 62 percent increase has been experienced regarding the number of drug-related deaths that are being recorded, according to America's Health Rankings. Unfortunately, the problems do not end with Florida as we see many other states and towns reporting the same numbers.
