The West Virginia Prescription Drug Abuse Solutions program was established in 2008 in response to the developing prescription drug abuse crisis in the state. It is a 24/7 single point of entry helpline for individuals, or their families and friends, who are struggling with prescription drug abuse issues. The program provides information, support and treatment referrals for those who suffer from prescription drug abuse. It also provides community education on the dangers of prescription drug abuse.
From 1999-2004, there was a 550 percent increase in drug overdose deaths in West Virginia, the highest in the nation (CDC, 2007). Drug overdose is the leading cause of death for West Virginians under 45 years old (Tuskwiller & Finn, 2007).
We have helped thousands of West Virginians find recovery from prescription drug addiction. If you need help, call us 24/7 at 1-866-WV-QUITT.
