Oregon, like quite a few states, has a problem with prescription drug abuse. According to SAMHA (or Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration), the amount of people who have died as a result of the use of the drugs is going up. Between 2002 and 2009, there were more than 1,200 deaths related to an overdose. In 2010, 400 people died in Oregon. That is, of course, not the only drug used in Oregon. Methamphetamine (or meth) is readily found in the state and is usually created in-state. Marijuana is also easy to find in Oregon. However, in 1999, the state legalized the drug for medicinal purposes, allowing for the drug to be easily abused. Ecstasy is the most commonly abused club drug and can be found throughout Oregon, though larger amounts of these drugs are found in big cities or on college campuses.
To help with the drug abuse that is found all throughout the state, quite a few drug and alcohol rehab facilities opened. If you or someone you know is struggling with an addiction, there is help.
