There are nearly half a million people living in Kansas City, Missouri, and thousands of these are trying to come to terms with the damage caused by drug and alcohol abuse, either as a result of their own addictions or ones afflicting their loved ones. Meth, heroin and cocaine are widely available throughout the city and in recent years there has also been an increase in the availability of opioids and sedatives— dangerous drugs that can do serious damage to the respiratory system.
Our Kansas City sober living homes were created to counteract this issue, to provide some solace to the growing number of addicts in this city, and to give their loved ones some hope for the future.
Missouri Sober Living
Every year in Missouri around 1,300 people die from drug overdoses. This state is by no means the worst when it comes to addiction and abuse, but that’s still a huge number of deaths, especially when you consider that every single drug overdose death can affect parents, brothers, sisters, children, friends and communities.
There are more deaths from drug overdoses in this state than there are from suicide and influenza, and there are twice as many self-inflicted overdose deaths than there are murders. These are very worrying statistics, but it gets much worse as official overdose deaths typically don’t include the many issues that stem from addiction and abuse, from the murders and traffic accidents that occur when people are under the influence, to diseases like liver cancer, HIV and hepatitis that result from chronic abuse.
Missouri has a big issue with methamphetamine use and is one of the worst hit in the US. A few years ago it clamped down on small-scale meth labs that once supplied the entire state, but as soon as these labs went underground they were replaced by much bigger cartel-controlled labs in Mexico. Some experts have estimated that there is now more meth on the streets of Missouri than ever before, suggesting that the authorities are fighting a losing battle.
Another big issue facing Missouri today is opioid abuse. There are over 70 opioid prescriptions being written for every 100 people in the state, and many of the people getting hooked on these drugs are then turning to stronger narcotics like heroin when they have their prescriptions taken away or can no longer afford them.
Not only is heroin a potent opioid, but it’s often mixed with stronger and more deadly opioids like fentanyl, which can kill in doses no bigger than a few grains of salt. It also tends to be injected, leading to a rise in hepatitis and HIV, as well as skin infections.
Needless to say, these statistics are still very alarming and Missouri sober living facilities are needed to reduce these issues and go someway to fixing the problem.
