The Washington Drug Rehab state page provides the reader with a quick overview of issues relating to drug and alcohol addiction and WA drug rehab centers.
It should be noted that these pages are not intended as an academic reference. The data collected is from State and Federal sources.
According to the Substance Abuse Treatment Episode Data Set, 38,086 people entered drug and alcohol rehab in 2010. 62.7 % of that number were males and 37.3% were females.
In 2007-2008, Washington was one of the top ten states for rates in several drug-use categories among persons age 12 and older: past-month illicit drug use; past-month marijuana use; and past-year non-medical use of pain relievers.
Approximately 10% of Washington residents reported past-month use of illicit drugs; the national average was 8%.
In 2010, 4,869 people went to rehab for alcohol addiction and 10,960 people were admitted for alcohol combined with a secondary drug.
Alcohol-only admissions have declined, from over 45 % of all admissions in 1992 to just over 19% in 2005. Concomitantly, drug-only admissions have increased, from 11% in 1998 to 27% in 2005. Since 2005, there has been a steady increase of people attending treatment for alcohol combined with a secondary drug.
The graph above depicts substance abuse primary admissions in Washington in 2010. The data show that marijuana, followed by stimulants (including methamphetamine), is the most commonly cited drug among primary drug treatment admissions in the state.
As a direct consequence of drug use, 1,003 persons died in Washington in 2007. This figure is greater than the number of persons in Washington who died from motor vehicle accidents (649) and firearms (548) in the same year.
Washington drug-induced deaths (15.5 per 100,000 population) exceeded the national rate (12.7 per 100,000).
