Addiction Statistics for the Commonwealth of Virginia
 
Virginia straddles the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States, and is historically, politically, and economically important to the country. Home to the first permanent English colony of Jamestown, the Commonwealth played a significant role during the Civil War Era when part of its original territory split off to form West Virginia. The nation's capital of Washington, D.C. is nestled up against the northern part of the state. The Old Dominion has produced more U.S. presidents than anywhere else, and it is the 12th largest state by population.

Like many other larger U.S. states with populous urban centers in addition to huge swaths of rural areas, Virginia has to contend with many difficult issues. One such issue is the drug epidemic, which includes the problems related to addiction and overdoses. In particular, Virginians' dependency on opioids has increased in recent years, likely often due to prescription use of certain painkillers leading to abuse and often to death. 
According to raw numbers from the CDC, there were a staggering 1,405 overdose deaths in the Commonwealth in 2016. Given the large population size of the state, the overdose death rate is not terribly high, but detailed numbers about drug addiction in Virginia nevertheless paint an ugly picture.

Addiction Statistics in Virginia

Being a large state with relatively strong numbers in terms of its economy, education, and healthcare, it is easy for some to overlook just how significant the drug abuse crisis is in Virginia. With some of the most alarming numbers getting worse over time, it is particularly concerning that Virginia borders and is otherwise near other states that are suffering even worse from the epidemic. These states include West Virginia, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and Ohio. But even focusing only on what is happening in Virginia right now is worrisome. Here are some statistics:

  • The raw total of overdose deaths in Virginia ranks 16th-highest in the nation.
  • Far more concerning than even the high raw numbers is the fact that Virginia's drug overdose deaths have grown both in raw numbers and in terms of rate recently, with a 34.7% increase from 2015 to 2016.
  • While this increased 2016 rate of 16.7 deaths per 100,000 residents is still slightly below the national average, Virginia's overdose death rate seems to be linked to the national trend of increased deaths over time.
  • Down from 79.6 people receiving opioid prescriptions per 100,000 in 2012 to 63.4 per 100,000 in 2016, there can be some hope that this trend will continue, but there are clearly still too many people in Virginia using and then abusing prescription drugs and other opioids.
  • According to the Virginia Department of Health, a staggering 803 of the 2016 overdose deaths were the result of fentanyl or heroin use, while another 465 were from prescription drugs, strongly indicating that even if prescription drug problems go down other related issues that are fatal remain.
  • While Virginia remains near the national average in terms of statistics related to the abuse of other drugs as well as alcohol, most health experts believe the national averages to be alarmingly high.

While these drug addiction numbers for Virginia are of course scary, there are excellent resources available for those who wish to seek help regardless of the extent of the problem they are facing. In particular, there are even more high-quality treatment centers in existence today than there were just a few years ago, and they are well positioned to provide help to anybody who needs it.
