Why is There More Help in Westmoreland From AA and NA than from Clinics?

Both NA and AA are not funded by any outside group as per their rules. This means that they can actively serve areas that need them without having to ask permission from anyone but their governing body. In other words, AA and NA can go where they are needed more quickly.

Why Do People in PA Turn to Drugs?

Pennsylvania can be a hard place to live. The unemployment rate in Pennsylvania was 4.2% as of December 2018. Unemployment is often much higher in more rural communities across the nation. This means that the rate of addition can be much higher. Unemployment is very stressful and stress can trigger a relapse if the person is not being given the right resources. 

 

Have you picked up drugs as a kid or know someone who has?

Often, kids pick up drugs because they have mental health needs that have not been met, their friends pressure them into it, they are curious, or sometimes they feel hopeless because they are in a bad situation, such as an abusive home. Adults are often the victims of drugs for the same reason. 

Some people can use drugs without becoming addicted; other people do not become addicted until they have tried these drugs several times. This often encourages other people to try drugs because they see them as safe. Just because someone you know has done many drugs over a long period and not become addicted does not mean that you will have the same result. You might become addicted the first time you take them.
