Franklin Substance Use
Franklin is a city and county seat of Williamson County, Tennessee. Franklin is part of the greater Nashville Metropolitan area. As part of the Nashville area, Franklin has seen a marked increase in drug overdose deaths that is consistent with the addiction woes that Nashville—as well as surrounding towns and counties have been experiencing.
The need for addiction treatment in Franklin as well as in Tennessee in general has been exemplified by the number of drug overdoses the state has seen in the past year. The opioid epidemic in the United States is being fought through educational and legislative measures, as well as the efforts of healthcare professionals in abstaining from prescribing such drugs unless strictly necessary. However, that does not mean that certain states in particular, such as Tennessee, are not seeing high rates of addiction or drug overdoses.
A great deal of focus is placed on the opioid epidemic—rightly so, but we cannot lose focus on the scope of addiction, which includes alcohol addiction, or drug addiction in general. The CDC estimates that approximately 37 million adults in the United States binge drink about once a week. This translates to about 1 in 6 adults consuming about 7 drinks per binge.
Conducted by the CDC, the PSR (prevention status report) for Tennessee contains insightful data from 2014. According to the report, 10.6% of adults in Tennessee in 2014 reported binge drinking and 16.1% of high school students reported binge drinking.
The NSDUH Report by SAMHSA dives into the statistics of the greater Nashville metropolitan area which consists of Nashville, Davidson, Murfreesboro, and Franklin. This report estimates that an annual average of 218,000 persons aged 12 or older had used an illicit drug in the past year. This equates to about 18.1% of the MSA population and exceeds the national rate for the state of Tennessee.
