The Primary Substance Abuse Problems
The primary drug threat throughout the state remains powder and crack cocaine. The most violent crimes in the state are attributed to its distribution and abuse. In addition, the rising availability of high-purity, low cost heroin is creating a large user population with a greater physical risk to users, who are younger than ever before. In the northern Ohio region, South American and Mexican black tar heroin are prevalent, while in the southern Ohio region, Mexican black tar heroin is predominant. Marijuana remains the most abused drug in the state. The state is a source area for marijuana cultivation, as well as a distribution point for Mexican marijuana from the southwest border. Club drugs and MDMA (ecstasy) are also growing in popularity in urban areas. Meanwhile, methamphetamine manufacturing and use are increasing, but has not reached the levels of other states in the Midwest.
Signs that Help May Be Needed
The reason that people develop an addiction to an illicit substance may be different for everyone. Dependence also has different faces, it does not discriminate based on age, sex, height, weight, ethnicity, sexuality – addiction does not care. Oftentimes, the beginning is recreational and fun, that is how most people start. However, they slowly become out of control, realizing too late that they have developed a chemical dependency that they are unable to deal with themselves. Many times, a person will use illicit substances to mask emotional or physical pain. Regardless of what the reason may be that a person started using, there are a number of signs that would indicate professional treatment might be necessary to help them break free. Indicators showing that addiction has taken over someone's life and they are no longer in control are listed below. See if these statements ring true for you or someone around you.

Why Waste Another Second Making the Call?
If you are not sure whether someone is struggling with addiction and needs help, but afraid to discuss the matter, just think about what the worst case scenario would be in both cases. If you discuss the situation and someone is not struggling with dependence or does not believe they need help, they may be offended by the fact that you called because you care. If you do not make the call and someone is struggling with addiction, yet nothing is done about it, the worst case scenario include incarceration or becoming one of the 1,691 drug-induced deaths throughout the state that we saw in just one year. Even if you just want to run a specific situation by our professional counselors, we are here to help you.
