Addiction Statistics for Tennessee
 

Tennessee, humbly known as the Volunteer State, stretches 42,146 square miles with a population of nearly 6 million people. The State has a historical background that is rich with ethnic diversity. Native Americans inhabited the area as far back as 11,000 years ago, it is also home of the infamous "Rebel Flag" which was originally the flag flown by the Confederate troops of the State of Tennessee during the Civil War before eventually being adopted by the majority of Southerners as the main flag and symbol of the Confederate States of America, a flag which is still to this day proudly raised over thousands of homes in Tennessee. The uniquely positioned state borders with eight neighboring states and has been dubbed the smuggler's state by residents of the drug-riddled region. 

Drug use in the U.S. has risen by 20% in the past 40 years. Due to this factor Americans have reached an all-time high overdose rate of 50,000+ per year. $350 billion has been spent in the past 5 years alone to combat drugs on the streets in America and the impact on society they cause, nearly 500,000 Americans are in prison currently due to drug offenses. Tennessee is a huge contributor to these statistics as it is ranked in the top 5 of States with the highest drug abuse rates, it is #2 for prescription drug abuse, and #5 for the most violent crimes. Nearly $14 million in relief funds have been set aside for Tennessee to combat the ongoing opioid crisis. Over 10,000 residents are admitted to rehab programs each year due to substance abuse.
