Goodyear is a city that is found in the state of Arizona. Home to an estimated 2019 population of approximately 86,000 people according to the United States Census Bureau, Goodyear is one of the larger cities in the state by population. But one drawback to being densely populated is that more people often means more drug addiction and overdose, particularly since America’s drug epidemic began in the early 2000s. In 2019 there were 20.8 drug deaths for every 100,000 residents of the state, a rate which was higher than the national average for the year according to America's Health Rankings. This is just a glimpse of the people who did not get the help that they needed when it comes to drug and alcohol rehabilitation and detox services. Each drug death was someone’s life that could have been saved if they had gotten into treatment and gotten the help that they needed. Many of these people did not receive any rehabilitation services, so it is not necessarily the fault of America’s treat6emnt system that their lives were lost. Many drugs, such as opioids, have become so potent that people who have not “worked up” to them will die if consuming them with no previously established tolerance. This can mean that someone who has little experience with drugs can easily overdose before they were ever ready to get help. This is why you can never ignore signs of drug use in a loved one. If you suspect it, it is probably true. Act before it is too late.
