Sarasota County is a county that can be found in the state of Florida. Home to an estimated population of more than 433,000 people as of 2019 according to the United States Census Bureau, Sarasota County is one of the larger counties in the state. But one drawback to being densely populated is the risk of increased rates of drug addiction and overdose death, something that has been an issue since America’s drug epidemic began in the early 2000s. According to County Health Rankings, from 2015 to 2017 there were 315 drug deaths in Sarasota County, one of the highest totals for any county during that time period. This shows how many people are not getting the help that they need from drug and alcohol rehabilitation and detox services. But this does not mean that these programs are to blame since many people never make it into treatment before accidentally overdosing and losing their lives to drugs. In early addiction, this is especially common since the person has a much lower tolerance and less experience with consuming drugs. They also have no motivation to stop since they do not even think they have a problem yet. This is why you should never ignore signs of drug use in a loved one or wait for them to be “ready”.
