Rhode Island Drug Detox Centers Help Patients Achieve Sobriety

When people think of Rhode Island, they often remember that it is the smallest state in the country. However, this tiny state has a growing problem that society must address. Rhode Island currently ranks in 13th place for having the highest drug overdose mortality rate in the United States. In 2013, 15.5 of every 100,000 drug overdose incidents resulted in death, and many of those overdoses were related to prescription drug abuse. This rate has nearly tripled since 1999, when just 5.5 of every 100,000 drug overdoses were fatal.

The state legislature in Rhode Island is working toward improving this rate by creating bills that would make it more difficult for prescription drug abusers to repeat their offenses. For instance, House Bill 6237 is currently working its way through the legislative process. This bill would allow those who prescribe medication the authority to request authorization for tamper-resistant medication before prescribing it to an individual who has abused prescription drugs in the past or who is at risk of abusing prescription drugs like Oxycodone, Percocet, and Xanax. This bill would have to be approved by both the House and the Senate before going to the Governor’s office.
