TN Substance Abuse Facts 

Through national media coverage of the dramatic increase in opioid use and opioid-related overdoses nationwide, Americans are more aware of the harmful effects of drug and alcohol abuse than ever before. This awareness, however, has not been enough to reduce the rate of addiction.

In every state, the problem remains serious and widespread—and Tennessee is no different. Based on surveys and statistics gathered between 2014 and 2015, we now know the following about Tennesseans and addiction:1–4

  • Approximately 41,000 teenagers (8.2%) ages 12 to 17 reported using alcohol in the past month.
  • Of those aged 12 and older, about 14,000 people admitted to using heroin in the last year.
  • Around 2.3 million people older than 12 had used alcohol in the last month.
  • In the same age group, nearly 290,000 (5.3%) of them had an alcohol use disorder (addiction).
  • Among those 12 and older across the United States, 7.7 million people had an illicit drug addiction.
  • In Tennessee, 1,451 died from drug overdoses in 2015, far more than died in car crashes that year.

Where Else Can I Find Help?

Because drug and alcohol addiction is such a big issue in our country, government-funded programs like Medicaid and Medicare offer provisions specifically for substance abuse treatment to those who qualify. Your Tennessee State Health and Human Services website has all the details for Medicaid and other programs like it.

Paying cash for treatment often seems out of reach for the average person, but most treatment centers really do want you to get the help you need and will work with you on the financial side of things. From sliding scales based on income to monthly payment plans to partial or full scholarships, there are several options available to help you afford addiction care—just ask.

Community resources such as local health clinics, charitable organizations, and churches frequently have referrals to qualified providers, and many have funds reserved to offer those in dire need. Do your homework, make some calls, and don’t give up until you’ve found the best treatment program for you.
