Substance abuse is one issue that has been present in the community of Prince George County for several years now, including in its county seat, Prince George. Since this problem can cause an important amount of damage, it should always be taken very seriously. We will be going over some statistics that will help us truly understand the impact this issue has had in the area. For instance, focusing on alcohol abuse, County Health Rankings states that 19% of the county’s adult population reported either binge or heavy drinking. Excessive drinking is a pattern that can lead to devastating consequences and even fatalities. To that effect, there were 9 alcohol-impaired driving deaths between 2014 and 2018 and this number consists of 26% of all driving deaths during this period. On another subject, drug overdoses also led to many casualties in the last years, with a drug poisoning mortality of 20 deaths per 100,000 population for 2016-2018. These statistics definitely prove the presence of drug and alcohol abuse in Prince George County. It is essential to have treatment resources for those who wish to get help beginning their recovery journey. One type of treatment is an outpatient program, and it is normally meant for those who cannot put their life completely on pause to attend treatment. Such people may have a job they can’t leave or a family to care for, but this certainly does not mean that they do not deserve to get assistance. With outpatient treatment, they do not have to live at the facility, but can instead come regularly for visits with substance abuse specialists or group meetings. This does require an extra amount of commitment from the person, as they need to stick to their sobriety while being in their usual environment daily, which can be filled with potential triggers. Still, an outpatient program can be successful and can give some individuals a chance at overcoming their addiction.
