Alcohol is the most abused drug in the country, learn more about what you can do to fight alcoholism.
Whether it be cocaine, meth, heroin, or something else, drug addiction is not something to ignore.
The Opioid Crisis has made this subclass of drugs on of the most abused.
People dealing with addiction generally suffer from a mental health dual diagnosis.
Alcohol addiction is a problem that affects people of all ages, genders, and backgrounds. It is a chronic disease that changes the brain, making it difficult to control drinking behavior.
Due to its legality, alcohol abuse is prevalent in the United States. According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), about 15 million adults in the U.S. suffer from alcoholism. More specifically for Ohio, the rate of alcoholism has actually decreased over the past few decades but still affects over a half a million people in the state.
This number includes about 8.4% of men and 4% of women over the age of 18.
If you or someone you love is struggling with alcoholism, we can help. We offer a variety of evidence-based treatments, including individual and group therapy, 12-step programs, and holistic therapies
Drug addiction is not something to take lightly, it can overtake someone’s life and will have a ripple effect that impacts everyone that person is close to. Whether we are talking about heroin addiction or cocaine addiction, drug addiction is a serious problem in the United States.
Each year, it causes hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations and deaths. It is estimated that there are currently about 20 million people in the US who suffer from drug addiction. That number includes both illegal and prescription drugs.
Drug addiction is a chronic, relapsing disease characterized by compulsive drug seeking and use despite negative consequences. Despite its devastating effects, drug addiction is treatable and can be successfully managed. With the right treatment plan in place, people recovering from drug addiction can lead healthy, productive lives.
Along with alcohol addiction, in recent years, opioids have seen a massive rise in abuse and addiction rates. In 2016, the CDC reported that more than 42,000 people died from an opioid overdose. This is more than any other year on record and a sharp increase from the roughly 33,000 deaths in 2015
The majority of these cases were due to prescription opioids, such as oxycodone and hydrocodone. However, heroin overdoses also increased by a staggering amount, by about 19%.
What’s even more concerning is that these rates are still on the rise. In 2017, the CDC reported that there were nearly 49,000 deaths from opioids. This is an increase of almost 14% from the previous year.
Looking more specifically at Ohio, you’ll notice that opioid use disorder has increased over the past few decades and is twice as prevalent as the national average – affecting nearly 150,000 people according to 2019 data.
Dual diagnosis, also known as co-occurring disorders, is when a person suffers from both a mental health disorder and an addiction. For example, someone may suffer from depression and an alcohol use disorder. According to the National Institute on Mental Health, about 7.9 million adults in the United States suffer from both a mental health disorder and an addiction.
Dual diagnosis is often difficult to treat because the two disorders can interact and worsen each other. For example, someone who is depressed may turn to drugs or alcohol to self-medicate, which can then lead to addiction. Or, someone with an addiction may develop a mental health disorder such as anxiety or depression as a result of their drug use

My career started in the fashion industry but quickly changed as I searched to find my drive and passion through helping others who struggle with addiction.
As someone who is also in recovery, I wanted to provide hope, share lived experience, and support others on their journey.

Growing up in Louisiana with addiction running rampant on both sides of my family. A life away from drugs and alcohol seemed impossible for someone like me. I remember what it was like sitting across from someone thinking there is no way they could ever understand what I was going through.
Sharing my experience offers a credibility and a certain type of trust with clients that only someone who has walked down this road can illustrate. To immerse myself further into the field of addiction, I am currently studying at Cincinnati State for Human and Social Services. I hope I never forget where I came from, if I can do it, so can you!

My name is Mary D. Porter. I received my Masters of Social Work in 2008 from The University of Cincinnati. I received My Licensed Independent Chemical Dependency Counselor Licensure in 2001. I retired from The Department of Veteran Affairs Medical Center on April 14, 2014. Currently, I am the Associate Clinical Director for The Ohio Community Health Recovery Centers in Cincinnati.. Due to the fourth wave of the Opioid Epidemic in 2019, I decided to enter back into the workforce to assist the addicted population.
The overdoses were astounding and I wanted to help. I consider myself to be an advocate for the addicted population. My compassion, resilience, empathy, wisdom, knowledge, experience and love I have for this forgotten population goes beyond words. I consider what I do for the addicted population as a calling versus a “career,” because I too was once an “addict and alcoholic.” Today I am 45.5 years alcohol and substance free.
Hello, my name is Ben Lemmon, and I’m the Vice President and Clinical Director at Ohio Community Health Recovery Centers. I’ve been working in the addiction and mental health field since 2013 and decided to enter the field after overcoming my own challenges with addiction.
When I first meet a client, I always explain to them that the reason we are meeting is because they are not capable of obtaining or maintaining sobriety, and my goal is to create a person that can maintain sobriety. I believe a person’s personality is made up of their thoughts, feelings and actions and my job is to help clients identify the thoughts, feelings and actions that have them disconnected from recovery and provide them with the tools to live a healthy and happy life.
