GET A CALL BACK

York County is a county that can be found in the state of Virginia. It is home to an estimated population of approximately 68,000 people as of 2019 according to the United States Census Bureau, York County is one of the smaller counties in the state by population. But being sparsely populated doesn't necessarily mean that an area is safe, as we've seen since America's drug epidemic has swept even some of the most rural portions of the nation. According to County Health Rankings, from 2015 to 2017 there were 20 drug deaths in York County, a rate which shows just a glimpse of who didn't get the vital drug and alcohol rehabilitation and detox services that they needed before it was too late. But this is not necessarily the fault of the areas of drug and alcohol rehabilitation and detox services. Many of these people had never even seen the inside of a treatment center before accidentally overdosing and losing their lives to drugs. In early addiction, this can happen because the person has a very low tolerance for drugs and is not experienced in identifying substances or dosing. This can lead to accidents easily, particularly since drugs like fentanyl have become more and more used. Synthetic drugs like this are becoming more and more popular with drug dealers looking to increase profits but are causing more and more deaths. Never ignore signs of drug use in a loved one. Act before it is too late to help them.
