Drug Addiction Statistics for the State of Washington

The State of Washington is famous for its prominent location in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. With a population of 7.4 million people, it is the the thirteenth-largest state in the union. Washington's economy is also robust, featuring the tenth-highest GDP per capita in the country. Well known for technology-related firms such as Microsoft and Amazon, coffee giants like Starbucks, as well as for grunge rock and other music, the Evergreen State has a reputation as well-to-do and healthy. However, Washington has more than its share of problems, including drug-related issues. 

According to the CDC, Washington ranked 20th nationwide in terms of drug-overdose deaths with 1,102 of them in 2016. While slightly below the national average, the drug-related death rate in Washington is still staggering at 14.5 per 100,000 people. Alarmingly, drug deaths have usually increased in Washington in recent years. As in the case in numerous other states, opioid prescription rates are high and are generally getting higher in Washington, which frequently leads to prescription abuse and all too often to heroin addiction.

Addiction Statistics in Washington


Tabulating and analyzing drug overdose death statistics can be done using many different methods, but there is no way to look at the numbers and not be alarmed. While the drug overdose epidemic is certainly not limited to the State of Washington or even to the United States, a deep look at one state is in many ways easier for one to understand than trying to grapple with the issue on a larger scale. Here are some details about drug addiction in Washington:

  • Over the past ten years, the number of people in Washington admitted for opiate-related treatment has nearly tripled to 14,422 instances as of 2015.
  • The vast majority of those seeking treatment, 11,598 people, were for heroin addiction, meaning that there are likely many prescription opioid abusers who don't believe that they have a problem.
  • A staggering 64.9 per 100,000 people in Washington were prescribed opioids in 2016.
  • The total number of drug-related crime lab cases reached an all-time high of 3,070 in 2016, which has steadily increased most years since 2006 from 1,516 cases.
  • Of those cases in 2016, a clear majority of them involved opiates, with 2,605 of them involving heroin.
  • Among the 1,102 CDC-tracked 2016 drug overdose deaths in Washington, 692 of them, a vast majority, were opioid-related according to the University of Washington's Alcohol and Drug Abuse Institute.
  • While cocaine use has declined in recent years and has been replaced in large part by opioid abuse, 5% of those in the 18-25 age range in Washington State reported current use of the drug, and cocaine still results in dozens of deaths each year.
  • 364 Washington deaths in 2016 involved methamphetamine, often in combination with opioids.
  • Alcohol remains deadly and is the most commonly abused substance in Washington State with 6% of people in the state admitting to dependence on alcohol.

With marijuana available both medicinally as well as recreationally in the State of Washington, it can be easy for some to take a permissive attitude toward substance abuse in the Pacific Northwest. However, taking a close look at drug addiction and overdose statistics should persuade anybody that there are serious problems to address.

There are countless options available to anybody who feels that they are anywhere on the path to becoming a tragic statistic. Take the time to learn more about such resources.
