Lake Havasu City is a city that is located in the state of Arizona. Home to an estimated population of more than 55,000 people as of 2019 according to the United States Census Bureau, Lake Havasu City is one of the moderately sized cities in the state. But regardless of size, drug addiction and overdose seem to be a problem everywhere since America’s drug epidemic began at the start of the millennium. In 2019 there were 20.8 drug deaths for every 100,000 residents of the state of Arizona according to a report published by America’s Health Rankings. This rate was notably higher that that national average during the same year, showing the extent of the state’s drug problem. Every single drug death was a life that could have been saved if the person had gotten good help for their addiction. But so many of the people who lose their lives to drugs every year have never been to treatment before. In early addiction, it is not uncommon for the person to accidentally overdose because their tolerance is low, and they do not have much experience with dosing. They also have no reason to quit since they just started and do not even believe that they are addicted yet. They have experienced no negative consequences yet and are experiencing rewards from the drugs. This is why you must never ignore signs of drug use in a loved one.
