If you have ever watched the teen vampire movie "Twilight," then you might have noticed the state's natural beauty. The state is home to over 100 parks and 125,263 acres of protected lands. It is the only state in the nation named after a president (George Washington) and is the biggest producer of apples (56%) in the U.S. Besides being a significant fruit producer, the historical state has been making substantial leaps towards clean energy and has a considerable aerospace industry. What is not common knowledge is that the state's residents are battling an unprecedented crisis. For an entire decade from 2000 to 2011, Washington state had the highest number of drug-induced deaths in the nation. During those 10 years in 2002-2004, there was a 134% increase in Opioid-related cases. Then history repeated itself in 2014-2016, and Opioid related incidents rose once again. Authorities in Washington are doing their best to combat drug addiction, but there is still a lot of work to be done. Fortunately, there are addiction treatment facilities ready to help. Check out some local options.
