Jamestown has had to deal with drug problems for many years now, and even though it seems to have gotten slightly better for the most part, it is still definitely present in the city. For instance, the Jamestown Metro Drug Task Force said in its 2018 Annual Report that it seized 4,227.48 grams of cocaine/crack cocaine, 2,195.39 grams of meth, and 3,184.22 grams of marijuana. This already shows us that the substance abuse problem in the city involves many drugs. These next statistics will come from Chautauqua County, which Jamestown is part of, as this will help us get the whole picture of this issue. First, there are drug overdoses that have caused many fatalities in the county, and the drug overdose death rate for 2016-2018 was at 102 deaths per 100,000 population. There is also alcohol-impaired driving that caused 14 deaths for 2014-2018 and this equals 26% of driving deaths for that same period. The best way for someone to overcome such an addiction is with treatment, but some people may not know where to begin or where to look. This is why there are assessments as they can help with that. They consist of a series of questions that will help determine what type of treatment would be best for that person. It will usually begin with a detox, but they may be offered either outpatient or inpatient drug treatment. In any case, as long as they are committed to their recovery and stick to their plan, any type of treatment can be successful.
