Drug Treatment Facilities in Orange County, Virginia

Last updated: 21 December 2021


Orange County's county seat is Orange, and together they have definitely been affected by the abuse of drugs and alcohol, as well as with the consequences associated with such a problem. The presence of substance abuse in a community is always serious because this is something that can and has caused an important amount of damage. The first thing we will look at is excessive drinking, as 17% of the county's adult population reported binge or heavy drinking in 2017. This may have contributed to certain casualties since between 2014 and 2018, alcohol-impaired driving led to the deaths of 13 individuals, which accounts for 13% of the driving-related driving that occurred in this time period. Next, we will look at the deaths caused by drug overdoses and the opioid epidemic, as these two problems have been even more present in this area of Virginia. The drug overdose mortality rate for 2016-2018 was of 41 deaths per 100,000 population. The opioid crisis has also been present in Orange County, as it has in the majority of the nation, and in 2018, there were 13 opioid overdose deaths in the county, according to the LiveStories Catalog. Opioids are extremely abusive substances that can lead to a lot of harm being caused, as we've seen from this previous statistic. Intensive and comprehensive treatment is undoubtedly needed to help someone recover from such an addiction. Treatment for opioid abuse will normally start with medical detoxification to give the addict a real chance at safely coming off opioids. Once this step is completed, they will be ready to tackle the rest of their program, which will include finding the root causes for their addiction and learning how to truly overcome it.
