Arizona Addiction Hotlines
America has a severe addiction problem, and Arizona is no exception. Substance abuse is among the top health concerns in the state. This year, 13.17% of residents reported illicit drug use sometime during the last month, per the CDC. A total of 2,730 residents died from overdoses in 2021 alone.
