The Opioid Epidemic In Madison

Although rates of alcohol abuse are significantly higher, Madison, like many other cities throughout the US is struggling with the Opioid Epidemic. Of primary misuse and concern are prescription Opioids considering that in 2020, 44 Dane County residents died of prescription Opioid abuse. This is not to say that other Opioids such as Heroin do not contribute to a concerning number of deaths; 2020 saw a total of 123 deaths in Dane County alone and 1,227 deaths throughout the state. Prescription Opioid abuse is the leading cause of Heroin and Fentanyl (a synthetic Opioid 50 times more powerful than Heroin) addiction as patients find the illicit substance widely available and a cheaper alternative to prescriptions.

Studies indicate people between the ages of 18 to 25 years old are the most at risk of synthetic and prescription Opioid abuse. This is a special problem in Madison, which is home to several large universities such as University of Wisonsin-Madison, Edgewood College, and others. Those who abuse other drugs like Cocaine may find themselves combining them with illicit Opioids like Heroin for a stronger effect. Another major risk in Madison is the combination of alcohol and Opioids. Both substances have similar effects on the body, resulting in an increase risk of abuse, addiction, and relapse.

Beginning the process of detoxification can be daunting and often dangerous to endure alone. Individuals using prescription Opioids like Codeine, OxyContin, or Dilaudid may be provided increasingly smaller doses to ease the transition into sobriety, a process known as tapering, while users of illicit substances are generally provided other medications to make the process safer and less painful. Quitting suddenly without the aid of professional may result in severe withdrawal symptoms as the body will attempt to maintain equilibrium at an incredibly fast rate. Depending on the substance the individual is attempting to withdraw from, withdrawal timeframes can span from 3 hours to 6 months. There are centers near Madison that can provide the assistance with detox as well as other methods of rehabilitation. Contacting a treatment provider allows those suffering with substance abuse disorders to explore available treatment options.
