Drug And Alcohol Addiction In West Jordan, Utah

West Jordan is a suburb of Salt Lake City, located just south of I-215 in Salt Lake County, Utah. It is home to 103,712 Utahns and is one of the region’s fastest-growing residential areas. Utah is known as a conservative state and maintains stricter laws on the consumption and sale of alcohol and drug possession. However, as a state, Utah has seen startlingly high rates of drug-related deaths. In an average year, 323 people die from a prescription Opioid drug overdose, 156 people die from a Heroin overdose, and 88 people die from synthetic Opioid overdose in Utah. Additionally, Utah is ranked 7th in the nation for the number of alcohol poisoning deaths. The most common substances of abuse in West Jordan include alcohol, Marijuana, Opioids and Methamphetamines.

For those seeking treatment options, there are several options within the state. However, traveling outside of the state for recovery may provide an individual with some mental and physical distance from triggers and memories associated with substance abuse.

Heroin Addiction In West Jordan

Following the onset of the Opioid Epidemic, Oxycodone prescriptions in Utah skyrocketed – as did Opioid addictions and overdose deaths. However, crackdowns on prescription Opioids left many to seek cheaper alternatives (like Heroin). Subsequently, Heroin-related deaths increased in Utah after the number of prescription-related deaths had started to decline. From 2015 to 2016, Heroin-induced fatal overdoses increased by nearly a third.

Substance Abuse And Mental Health Issues In West Jordan

Oftentimes, substance abuse can be linked to untreated mental health disorders. Consequently, one of the gravest problems residents now face is the high rate of suicide in Utah. By 2016, Utah had the fifth-highest rate of suicide in the nation – a 46.5% increase since 1999. According to the Utah Department of Health, 65.7% of prescription Opioid deaths involved a current mental health problem and 13.7% of cases had a history of suicide attempts.
