Ohio's Youth Drug Abuse Problems

Commonly known as “dog food” and boy”, and currently being purchased for as low as 10 dollars a hit, heroin continues to be the drug of choice in central Ohio along with other the parts of the state.

The Ohio substance abuse monitoring network which assesses the quantity and type of drugs available throughout the state, has disclosed that studies from June 2010 to January 2011 showed an increased availability in heroin across the state of Ohio, with black tar heroin being the most common form of the substance in central parts of the state. Furthermore, studies showed that in the Columbus region, adolescents as young as fourteen were seeking addiction treatment for their heroin abuse.

In addition to heroin, lesser known drugs such as psilocybin mushrooms, LSD’s and ecstasy still constitute major problems for communities across Ohio. The substance abuse monitoring network also concluded that marijuana, like in most states, is Ohio’s most available drug, with widespread availability on almost every street and corner and its use transcending race, age and gender.
