Last updated: Tuesday, 09, November 2021


The city of Peekskill is located in Westchester County along the east side of the Hudson River. The population of the city is estimated at around 24,100 people and has a median age of 39, with a rate of poverty of about 13%. Much of the economy in the city revolves around the retail trade, construction, finance, and professional or technical services. Like many other areas within this part of the state, some families are struggling with substance abuse and addiction. According to the Westchester County Community Health Assessment and Improvement Plan (CHA) for 2014 to 2017, substance abuse within the county is an issue requiring more resources to help people struggling. Some of the focus is on preventing underage drinking, recreational drug use among teens, especially with prescription drugs, and excessive alcohol consumption among adults. Adolescents access prescription drugs through unused prescriptions left by their parents. Excessive alcohol consumption will also create countless social and economic problems communities struggle with. For example, within Westchester County, the age-adjusted percentage of adult binge drinking during the past month was between 18 and 23 years old. Binge drinking is a common problem for many young adults that often leads to recreational drug use later in life. When binge drinking progresses into alcoholism, it becomes more challenging to treat causing significant physical and psychological problems. Help is available! There are drug detox programs and substance abuse treatment all across the country to help you or your loved one. Drug Rehab Services can help you find the right type of treatment for you.
