Throughout the last few years, the drug crisis has intensified in many different nations, increasing the number of drug users and drug fatalities being reported yearly. IN the United States alone, there are nearly 41,000 drug-related deaths being reported annually and this is presenting some major concerns for the country. Since substance abuse has become a leading cause of death in the country, the threat now extends to some of the lesser-known places in the country including places such as Lincoln County, Wisconsin which has Merrill as the largest city within that county. The state of Wisconsin has reported an influx of substance abuse and the death toll has suffered as a result, showing an increase in the number of drug deaths that have been reported in the state since 2010, according to America's Health Rankings. Wisconsin still only remains one of the many states in the country that is recording these types of spikes in substance abuse and the drug mortality rate. Handling a drug or alcohol addiction of any kind can be a dangerous process that often leaves the individual very vulnerable. The drugs offer some type of relief or help to the problems the drug user is facing and while that relief may be a false sense of relief provided by a substance, it does the job temporarily. Ending the addiction means facing these challenges and dealing with new ones which can be an overwhelming thought for a drug user. Drug treatment programs help drug users overcome their entire addiction starting with the withdrawal from the substances and ending with addressing the other difficulties that have been experienced.
