According to America's Health Rankings, in 2019, there were 15.2 drug deaths in the state of Washington for every 100,000 people. In cities like Spokane, this rate was likely much higher. Virtually any drug can cause death if the person consumes too much of it. But for certain drugs, this is much more likely, since they are so potent that only a small amount can cause an overdose. Most people do not take an entire bottle of Tylenol by mistake. But with drugs like opioids, one pill may be strong enough to kill someone who does not have a tolerance to it. Another drug that causes overdose death in Spokane is methamphetamines. Meth is a stimulant, which can cause death from cardiac failure. The drug is so strong now that it commonly causes overdose, and in some states causes more than opioids do. With the various substance abuse treatment programs in Spokane, all of this can be avoided.


Here is a list of the different services in Spokane, Washington. The list can be incomplete so please do not hesitate to contact one of our treatment specialists at 1-800-304-2219.
