Gilbert is a city that is located in the central portion of the state of Arizona. This makes it liable to certain issues that big cities face such as increased rates of addiction. Arizona as a whole already has major issues with substance abuse and had 20.8 deaths in 2019 for every 100,000 residents according to a report published by America’s Health Rankings. This rate was likely much higher for big cities like Gilbert where these problems already exist and there are many more people who use drugs.

One type of drug that is killing people at an unprecedented rate is tranquilizers. Tranquilizers are often overlooked due to the attention that opioids gather, but they are becoming increasingly popular and abuse by youth and adults. Examples of tranquilizers include drugs like Xanax, Valium, and other medications used to treat anxiety and insomnia. These drugs are incredibly addictive and can cause overdose easily. People may take more pills or combine what they are already taking with other drugs or alcohol. This can be very risky since tranquilizers are central nervous system depressants that slow down things like heart rate and breathing. Before this can happen, it is important that residents get the help they need from the various substance abuse treatment programs in Gilbert.
