Washington has been known for many things, unfortunately some of them have to do with drug addiction. For example, the Pacific Northwest saw an early upsurge in heroin use in the ’90s – well before today’s epidemic. It has also seen considerable methamphetamine and alcohol use. Washington is also the second state to have legalized marijuana for recreational use, indicating a greater potential for substance abuse.
Washington state has over 450 rehab programs that combine to service more than 40,000 people at a time. Unfortunately there is still a shortage of inpatient treatment beds in the state, and hundreds of thousands of people in need of help go untreated each year.
