Drug Statistics and Facts
Heroin accounts for the majority of the illicit opiate abuse in America.
Among adults aged 18 or older in 2008, 2.3 million (1.0 percent) made suicide plans in the past year, and 1.1 million (0.5 percent) reported attempting suicide. A half million adults reported staying overnight in a hospital as a result of their suicide attempt in the past year.
Decreases in the rate of current use of a substance often occur when there are increases in the level of perceived risk of using that substance. Looking over the 7-year period, the proportion of youths aged 12 to 17 who reported perceiving great risk from smoking one or more packs of cigarettes per day increased from 63.1 percent in 2002 to 69.7 percent in 2008. During the same period, the rate of past month cigarette smoking among youths aged 12 to 17 dropped from 13.0 to 9.1 percent.
The rate of binge alcohol use was lowest among Asians (11.9 percent). Rates for other racial/ethnic groups were 20.4 percent for blacks, 22.0 percent for persons reporting two or more races, 24.0 percent for whites, 24.4 percent for American Indians or Alaska Natives, and 25.6 percent for Hispanics.

County meth task force formed.



Group committed to combating adverse effects of drug on county.

The People's Defender

Brett M. Spencer, judge of the Court of Common Pleas of Adams County,Ohio and Alan W. Foster, judge of Adams County,Ohio Court, are pleased to announce a county-wide effort to encourage awareness of the catastrophic effects of methamphetamine.

"Without exception, methamphetamine will adversely affect the life of every user and their families," both Spencer and Foster said in a statement. "In hopes that the community will band together to recognize and solve the problem of 'crystal meth,' we have contacted community leaders, who have committed to assist in breaking the chains of methamphetamine addiction in Adams County,Ohio."

To highlight the problems of meth addiction, an arrangement has been made with LaMar Billboards, who have graciously and substantially reduced their rental rates, for two billboards which will be placed at strategic locations within the county. One billboard, on state Route 41 south, in West Union, shows the before and after photo of a typical methamphetamine user, and is captioned "Extreme Makeover: Meth Edition." The other shows a photo of a group of community leaders, demonstrating that it takes a community to solve the methamphetamine problem. It is scheduled to be placed on state Route 32 near Burnt Cabin Road sometime this week.

The hope is that these billboards will bring renewed awareness to the community, and both teachers and parents will talk to children about how easy it is to become addicted, as well as the devastation and life-long effects addiction has on lives of not only the addict, but of everyone around them. Methamphetamine is the most addictive drug readily available, and is clearly documented to be addictive from the first time it is used, even to the "casual user."
