Heroin Abuse Growing in Seattle WA
Ever since the early 1990s when Kurt Cobain’s band Nirvana was a national phenomenon, Washington state and Seattle in particular have been linked with heroin use. Today, heroin addiction in Washington continues to be one of the most destructive forces in the area.
Heroin has become increasingly popular with young adults in Washington. The federal addiction research agency The National Institute of Drug Abusesays that heroin abuse indicators have risen steadily.
Because many people switch to heroin after developing an addiction to prescription narcotics, heroin is rarely the first drug people abuse. Heroin also affects people from all neighborhoods, from the most affluent to the very poor.
Heroin comes from the opium poppy, and most heroin found in the United States comes from Mexican and Central American sources. However, on the journey north, the drug can be cut with any number of substances to increase volume and profits for those selling the drug. Often, it’s these substances that prove lethal for heroin users. Many people across the Northeast region of the US have recently lost their lives to heroin cut with the dangerous drug fentanyl.
High-Functioning Alcoholism is Still Alcoholism
In addition to heroin, alcohol is a major destructive force in Washington. Not all alcoholics spend their days drunk and homeless. Many are high-functioning. They hold down good jobs and have families. So while a thriving microbrewery, wine, and spirit scene may provide fun for some, it proves too tempting for many others.
Middle-aged women are the fastest growing demographic of alcohol abusers in the country. Too many people justify drinking a bottle or two of Chardonnay every night because they keep other parts of their lives functioning. However, all it takes is one night of heavy drinking and driving before a functioning life turns into jail time, or worse.
