Drug Addiction in Milwaukee

In 2014, Wisconsin suffered 843 drug overdose deaths. 82% of these drug overdoses were unintended, and 14% were due to suspected suicide. Recently, Milwaukee county, home of the city of Milwaukee saw staggering numbers of opioid abuse, overdose, and death, reflecting in the opioid epidemic plaguing the state and the nation. Milwaukee county accounted for 330 drug-related deaths in 2016; mainly from opioid abuse. Milwaukee has witnessed a 495% increase in heroin-related deaths wince 2005. In 2017, 2,909 individuals in Milwaukee endured non-fatal overdoses due to opioids, and 300 died from opioid-related causes.

Alcohol Abuse in Milwaukee

Wisconsin has had a long battle with high alcohol abuse rates and is deemed the “heaviest drinking state in the entire country.” 1 in 4 Wisconsin adults binge drink, and many cities in the state boast high rates of alcohol abuse. Wisconsin’s drinking culture includes relaxed attitudes towards alcohol which can influence residents to explore drinking, potentially leading to heavy drinking and alcoholism.

Milwaukee in particular has a reputation for excessive drinking. 70% of Milwaukee adults have a minimum of 1 drink in a 30-day period, and many have at least 1 to 2 drinks daily. 22% of adult Milwaukee residents binge drink, and 7.5% are heavy drinkers. These behaviors are all problematic, as they greatly increase the likelihood of future alcoholism.

Some Milwaukee natives violate liquor laws or drink while conducting daily activities. Milwaukee County endured 10,897 alcohol-related hospitalizations in 2014. In the same year, 386 per 100,000 people in Milwaukee County were arrested for operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated.

Adolescent Alcohol Abuse in Milwaukee

Surveys consistently reveal that high numbers of Wisconsin’s youth experiment with drugs and alcohol. Underage drinking is common among adolescents aged 12 to 20. In some ways Wisconsin’s underage drinking rates are slightly lower than those of the nation as a whole, but they are still very high. 33% of Wisconsin adolescents currently drink alcohol, and 18% engage in binge drinking

Several studies have found that some bars have relaxed attitudes when it comes to adolescent drinking in the state. 15, 16 and 17-year olds can often consume a beer with parental approval, exposing them to all of the risks of alcohol before the legal age. There are many risks of underaged drinking in particular, such as higher rates of drunk driving and alcohol-related injuries. Even worse, the younger an individual is when they start drinking, the more likely they are to develop alcohol tolerance and eventually alcoholism later in life.
