Statistics revealed the presence of around 2,415 users of marijuana, 1,057 prescription drug addicts, 395 addicted to cocaine, 179 hallucinogen addicts, 100 people who use inhalants, and 22 people who are addicted to heroin in Renton, Washington. The epidemic of substance abuse has assumed epic proportions to alarm authorities and citizens in not just Renton but also the nation as a whole. Heroin is gaining popularity as the preferred drug of abuse as it is a cheaper alternative to opiates. Renton drug problems are compounded by the fact that the youth also indulge in binge drinking. The Healthy Youth Survey discovered that alcohol was most abused by youth. 46% of the students participating in the survey admitted to consuming alcohol in that particular month. The rampant abuse of prescription drugs was also a matter of great concern within Renton. 12% of the students admitted using prescription drugs to achieve a high during the past month, according to results from the Healthy Youth Survey.
