Drug And Alcohol Addiction In Stockton, California

Outside of Silicon Valley, Stockton is a fairly large city with a population of 309,228 people. Before the Opioid epidemic, Methamphetamines were the most rampant substance throughout Stockton. With the explosion in prescription and synthetic Opioids, however, more people started falling victim to the addictive quality of Opioids. It wasn’t long after that deaths from Opioids eclipsed deaths from Methamphetamine. In 2017, There was 57 deaths from prescription Opioids, an improvement from the 67 deaths a year prior. However, this rate is still more than twice the rate of Sacramento County, and the highest rate among the surrounding counties.

Although these rates of drug-related deaths are troubling, there is still hope in finding long-lasting and attainable recovery from substance abuse. In the state of California, there are more than 25 quality options for drug or alcohol rehab centers. While there may not be too many options for treatment immediately within the city of Stockton, traveling out of the city for treatment may provide an opportunity to experience recovery in a new way.

Prescription Opioids In Stockton

Doctors in San Joaquin County wrote prescriptions for 531,281 Opioid pain killers. In a county with only 745,424 residents, that makes a prescription for 70% of the total population. While a great portion of these prescriptions probably went to recurring patients, the large number of prescriptions circulating the community is troubling. Any way a person looks at it, there were well over 500,000 bottles of prescription Opioids going around in San Joaquin County.

The United States’ current Opioid epidemic comes from the addictive nature, and false advertising, of prescription Opioids. Today, most people who suffer from addiction to Heroin report that they started through an Opioid prescription from their doctor. The situation in San Joaquin County is no different.

Overdose In Stockton

2013 was a terrible year for overdoses in Stockton. Where California sat at 11.1 deaths out of every 100,000 people, one of the lowest rates among the states year-after-year, San Joaquin County’s rate was at 17.3. That totaled to 130 deaths in 2013. While these numbers have improved slightly now, they are still much higher than the 82 drug-related deaths in 2005.

In 2005, the leading cause of drug-related deaths was Methamphetamine. This made up 61% of the total overdose deaths. Prescription Opioids weren’t even on the radar, and only 15 people had died from Heroin use. Not even a decade later, prescription Opioids made up the majority of drug deaths, and Methamphetamines were only involved in 35% of those deaths. Deaths by Heroin also nearly doubled.

Fighting The Opioid Epidemic In Stockton

While the death-rate in Stockton and San Joaquin County is the worst of the surrounding counties, the city is putting actions into place to fight against the crisis. County officials distributed more than 400 free Narcan kits over 2017. These kits have not only gone out to first-responders but also people and friends of people who suffer form addiction. While there has been some negative reception among the distribution of Narcan due to its expenses, it seems as though the people of Stockton are benefitting from it. At the end of the day, giving people another chance at life is priceless.
