The United States is in the midst of an opioid abuse crisis. Opioid overdoses take the lives of 115 people per day, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).1 As of 2017, opioid overdoses in Orange County have doubled in the past decade. The most affluent cities in the county have been hit the hardest.2
Almost half of the accidental poisoning deaths in Orange County involved prescription drugs. The rate of opioid-related hospital admissions due to overdose in Orange County increased 141% between 2005 and 2015. There were 7,457 emergency department visits due to opioids between 2011 and 2015. Seven out of every 10 overdose deaths in this county involved opioids.3
Although men are generally more likely to abuse illicit drugs like heroin, women are more likely to misuse or abuse prescription drugs like narcotic painkillers. Middle-aged Orange County residents, 45 to 64 years old, were the most likely to die from an overdose on painkillers. In this region, the average painkiller prescription was written for 72 pills.3
People with significantly severe opioid dependence are likely to experience an unpleasant opioid withdrawal syndrome when attempting to quit or cut back on their use. The withdrawal period can be made more comfortable with medical detox treatment, and treatment will include therapy to change behaviors around prescriptions or other substances.
