Yakima, Washington is known for its agricultural heritage and has grown into a highly respected grape growing region. Tourism is on the rise with the city touting its moderate climate, theater arts, skiing, horseback riding and festivals.

The Facts

Illicit use of prescription drugs like Oxycontin and the abuse of illegal drugs such as heroin, cocaine, methamphetamines and marijuana rage across America among people of all backgrounds. Excessive use of beer, wine, vodka and other alcoholic beverages can spin out of control and devastate lives.

Yakima Washington

Even the “nicest” and most successful people can become addicted to drugs or alcohol. Most never dreamed that their use could result in an addiction that controls their life.

Yakima Addiction Resources

In fact, the use of illicit and prescription drugs is so prevalent in the U.S. that in 2012, drug overdose caused more accidental deaths than motor vehicle accidents for people 25 to 64 years old. (Source: Centers for Disease Control).

There is help.

If the use of drugs or alcohol has become a problem for you or someone you love, there are caring people who want to help you, not judge you. To learn more about sobriety and support in Yakima, see the resources listed below.
