Alcohol is another commonly abused drug. Although consuming alcohol is socially acceptable practice, alcoholics should very much still be considered addicted. The rate of DUIs in a city can be a reliable sign indicating a larger issue with alcohol abuse within the population. Consistent binge drinking is known to be associated with long-term physical and mental repercussions such as kidney failure, heart disease, and more.

Fighting Prescription Drug Abuse in Monterey, CA

Prescription drug abuse can easily lead to opioid addiction. When patients first receive prescriptions for powerful painkillers from their doctor, they are usually seeking help with pain management. For example, it is common for doctors to prescribe Oxycontin to individuals who have just received surgery in order to help cope with the pain afterwards. Even dentists can prescribe Vicodin or Percocet after strenuous root canals. Despite these drugs being known for their highly addictive properties, medical practitioners across the country freely prescribe these powerful narcotics, leading many otherwise normal individuals down a path of addiction.

Prescribe Safe Monterey County (PSMC) Initiative

In an effort to combat prescription medication abuse in Monterey County, the city’s hospitals and doctors have collaborated on a project aimed to educate its population on the dangers of addiction, as well as provide recommendations for holistic pain management techniques to discourage unnecessary opioid consumption.
