Substance abuse can lead to devastating consequences and it has certainly been present in Greene County and its county seat, which is the city of Stanardsville. It has caused an important amount of damage within a community, and the following statistics will show us how much it has affected the county, specifically alcohol abuse. Firstly, one of the repercussions of alcohol abuse can be casualties, and in fact, during the 2014-2018 period, alcohol-impaired driving caused 1 death in Greene County, and this accounts for 11% of all driving deaths, according to County Health Rankings. This may seem like a low number, but the truth of the matter is that even one death caused by substance abuse is one too many, as it is preventable. Excessive drinking can be at cause for some of these fatalities, and in 2017, 18% of the county's adult population reported either binge or heavy drinking. Drinking excessively can lead not only to an impaired judgment but can also result in serious health problems. Addiction can affect anyone, and particularly in the college scene, it is very present. College is, for some, their first experience being away from home and having more freedom. In this environment, there are many reasons why one might abuse drugs and/or alcohol, which can vary from helping their performance to simply partying too much. But these people deserve to get help and shouldn't be penalized when asking for it. This is why most schools have put policies in place that will allow these students to take a leave of absence for them to attend treatment, which means that once they have completed their program, they will be able to come back and eventually graduate.
