Overdose can occur on almost any drug, but there are only a few which are strong enough or used regularly enough to make overdose a relatively common occurrence when consuming it. Opioids are definitely at the top of the list, causing many overdoses every year. These drugs kill by causing respiratory depression, ultimately slowing breathing to the point of suffocation. Because certain opioids like Fentanyl are so strong that only a few grains can kill a person, accidental death can happen quite easily. Drug dealers mix Fentanyl in with heroin so they can make more money, at the risk of people's lives. The drug is cheap and manufactured synthetically, usually overseas. When added to heroin, it can make the product many times more potent, allowing the dealer to add fillers to boost the volume. This can be more than double the amount of end-product that the dealer can sell. But it also increases the likelihood of overdose death, because if the Fentanyl isn't mixed in perfectly there will be areas of higher concentration within the batch that will kill people. Accidental overdose often happens in this way, as the user isn't expecting this randomly potent bag of heroin.

Another drug that is killing more and more people is tranquillizers. These drugs have become increasingly popular, as more and more celebrities and artists glorify using Xanax and other tranquillizers. Like opioids, tranquillizers kill by slowing down the body's functions to the point of death. But what makes them particularly lethal, is that they have effects much like alcohol. Tranquillizers reduce inhibitions, making a person much more likely to engage in risky behavior. They also impair memory severely, so the user will do things they don't remember, such as take more drugs. This combination is deadly, leading people on tranquillizers to frequently overdose by taking too many or combining them with other drugs and alcohol. When combined with another central nervous system depressant, tranquillizers compound the respiratory effects and quickly kill.

What's Next?

After completing a drug rehab in Yuma County, the next step is arranging aftercare support in the county or city. The most common aftercare options are outpatient therapy, sober coaching, recovery meetings, or sober living homes. However, no one solution is suitable for everyone. The benefit of some of the aftercare support programs in Yuma County, services are tailored to meet individual needs. The goal is to take every step to achieve lifelong sobriety.
