Drug and alcohol abuse have been affecting Fluvanna County and its county seat, the city of Palmyra, for many years now, and the consequences associated with such an issue have definitely made their presence felt in this area of Virginia. This is a problem that has caused a great deal of damage and harm throughout the community, and it is still present to this day. For instance, 18% of the county’s adult population reported binge or heavy drinking in 2017. Excessive drinking is extremely dangerous and can cause devastating health problems, including anemia, malnutrition, and increase the risk of a stroke. It can also increase the chance of having unsafe sex and this can lead to sexually transmitted infections (STIs). But even worse than that, it can bring someone to make a life-threatening decision such as getting behind the wheel. Between 2014 and 2018, there were 4 deaths caused by alcohol-impaired driving in the county, which accounts for 20% of all driving deaths for this period. Finally, drug poisoning also caused fatalities in Fluvanna County, with a drug overdose death rate of 11 deaths per 100,000 population, according to County Health Rankings. Individuals who are suffering from alcohol and/or drug addiction should certainly get help, but finding the correct program isn’t always easy. One type of treatment that may be the best for some is a holistic program. Some treatment programs will give medications to help an addict get off the substance they are hooked on, but for certain people, this is not an option. Holistic treatment will provide a completely drug-free environment where more natural approaches will be used to assist a person in their recovery process.
