Rehabs near Cincinnati
Ohio has suffered more damage due to the Opioid epidemic than almost any other state; Cincinnati, one of its largest cities, has suffered the same. While it’s the 3rd largest city, Cincinnati has the largest metropolitan area in the state. In just 5 years from 2015 to 2019, the city saw a 50% increase in Opioid overdoses. During this time period, many other cities and states struggling with Opioids saw a plateau or slight drop; Cincinnati’s use continued to rise. The introduction of Opioids like Fentanyl added fuel to the fire of the Opioid epidemic in cities throughout Ohio. Alongside the still severe Opioid management issues, Cincinnati is now trying to cut down on the amount of Meth funneling into the city. Cartels in Mexico have taken up the mantle of Meth production now that domestic Meth labs are more easily found and busted. The increased drug trafficking resulted in a 1,600% increase in Meth seizures between 2015 and 2019. As a cheap and addictive drug, Meth is a dangerous new element for Cincinnati officials to try to handle alongside Opioids. If you currently struggle with Meth, Opioids, or any substance, please reach out for help. Local treatment centers can provide information and assistance.
