Alcohol and drug abuse have definitely impacted Page County and its county seat, Luray for many years now. Such a problem should always be taken seriously because of the damage and harm it can cause in a community. This type of issue affects not only the addict but also their loved ones and can even have an effect on people who don't know them. For us to understand how prevalent substance abuse is in the county, we will be looking at some recent statistics. Firstly, we have excessive drinking that was reported by 17% of adults in the county just in 2017, and this combines binge and heavy drinking. Drinking excessively can severely impair a person's ability to make good decisions, which can even lead to casualties. Well, between 2014 and 2018, alcohol-impaired driving caused 6 deaths in Page County, accounting for 33% of the 18 driving deaths during this period. If we look at it more broadly, we can see that drug poisoning also caused a lot of fatalities, as for 2016-2018, the drug overdose mortality rate was of 12 drug overdose deaths per 100,000 population, according to County Health Rankings. Now, when a person struggles with drug and/or alcohol addiction, it is extremely important that they seek treatment. There are different types of programs one can attend and this choice will depend on several factors. For instance, for someone whose addiction and severe and who can afford to put their life on pause completely, there is inpatient or residential treatment. This definitely requires commitment, as the person will be residing at the facility for the duration of their treatment, but it does ensure comprehensive care. They will be provided with a fresh environment in which they can focus solely on their recovery. Overcoming an addiction is not an easy task, so an intensive treatment program such as this one is undoubtedly the best option, should it fit with this person's situation and needs.
