Frederick County is a county that can be found in the state of Virginia. It is home to an estimated population of around 89,000 people as of 2019 according to a report from the United States Census Bureau, making Frederick County one of the smaller counties in the state. But even being small has not been enough to avoid the scourge of America’s drug epidemic. From 2015 to 2017 there were 61 drug deaths in Frederick County according to a report published by County Health Rankings and Roadmaps, a total which was one of the highest in the state for that time period. This shows us just how badly people need help from drug and alcohol rehabilitation and detox services. Each death may have been able to be avoided if proper rehab was delivered to them before it was too late. But it may surprise you to learn that many of the people who died from drug overdose never went to treatment. Many of them had just started using drugs and accidentally overdose before ever being ready to get help. This is why you should never wait for someone to be “ready” or follow any of the other sayings like “you can’t help someone until they are ready to help themselves”. These are factually false and dangerous pieces of “advice” which kill people every year. You can help someone who does not want help. It is quite simple. Anyone who has raised children knows that sometimes you have to step in to stop someone from hurting themselves.
