Addictions We Treat
With deaths from drug addiction and overdoses doubling in the USA in just the last ten years, rising from 36,000 in 2007 to over 70,000 in 2017,(1) the need for deep and lasting solutions has never been greater.
Fentanyl is roughly 100 times more potent than morphine and 50 times more potent than heroin. It is the most potent opioid pain reliever available for use in medical treatment. The danger is in how easily Fentanyl can be manufactured and mixed with or substituted for heroin and, because fentanyl is incredibly potent, accidental overdoses and deaths have spiked from this drug, increasing from below 5,000 deaths in 2015, to more than 28,000 in 2017.(1)
Prescription Opioids are a major driver behind the annually rising drug addiction and overdose rates, with more than 46,000 Americans losing their life due to opioids in 2017 (1), of which more than 17,000 deaths were prescription opioids. They have also shown to be a possible gateway drug to heroin.
Excessive alcohol use led to approximately 88,000 deaths each year in the United States from 2006 – 2010, shortening the lives of those who died by an average of 30 years. Excessive drinking was responsible for 1 in 10 deaths among working-age adults aged 20-64 years.(2)
Benzodiazepines, a type of prescription drugs that are highly psychoactive and are often classified as depressants. Though it might sound harmless, this drug resulted in almost 12,000 deaths in 2017, only 20% less than Heroin.
Cocaine is a stimulant that causes its users to generate a high amount of energy and dopamine. The rambunctious (pick a different word – “aggressive”?) high comes down hard and killed over 14,000 people in 2017.
