Known as the Green Mountain State, Vermont has a long and glorious history. It was, after all, the 14th state to join the US, making it the first state after the original 13 colonies. Though it is the second least populous state in America, it still boasts over 600,000 hardworking residents with varied, vibrant lives. And, its natural beauty draws people from across the globe to its ski and snowboarding areas.
Sadly, Vermont experiences a high rate of drug use. The state sits in the center of a web of highways that connect New York, Boston, Philadelphia, and Montreal, meaning out-of-state trafficking is a persistent problem that contributes to illicit drug use. And, unfortunately, efforts to combat one type of drug use, often results in the increase of another type, as was seen with heroin and crack cocaine a few years ago.
If you or someone that you care about are grappling with addiction, you don’t need to do it alone. There are rehabs in Vermont that can help.
