Addiction and Treatment Statistics for Williamson, West Virginia

Substance Abuse In Williamson And Mingo County

In recent months, reports have shown that more than 20 million hydrocodone (Vicodin) and oxycodone (OxyContin) pills were shipped to pharmacies in Williamson in a ten-year period. This influx of opioids could be having an impact on the rates of people affected by opioid addiction in Williamson.

  • The rate of overdose deaths in Mingo County is twice as high as the West Virginia state average, with 70.9 out of every 10,000 patients having passed away from an overdose in 2014.
  • 7.1 percent of the residents 12 years and older used illicit drugs in Mingo County in a one-month span.
  • 5.5 percent of residents in Mingo County report not having access to the alcohol dependence treatment they need.

Traveling For The Best Program

The choices for alcohol and drug use treatment centers within Williamson are limited, with only one rehab center available in the town. It is an advantage that there are many centers in the surrounding area because it gives a person who wants to seek residential treatment options for different levels of care.

Traveling for a program takes away any limits on what level of treatment a person receives. With options across West Virginia, and in neighboring states like Kentucky, the only barrier to treatment is how far a person is willing to go.
