Prescription drug abuse is the fastest growing drug problem in the nation. In a National Survey on Drug Use and Health, Kentucky was one of the top ten states in several drug-use categories among persons age 12 and older including: past-year non-medical use of pain relievers, past-month use of illicit drugs other than marijuana, and illicit drug dependence. Approximately 8 percent of Kentucky residents reported past-month use of illicit drugs; the national average was 8 percent. The rate of drug-induced deaths in Kentucky exceeds the national average.
