Interesting Facts and Statistics:
Tolerance to Methadone that has been administered in a pain-control program usually occurs during the first weeks of use; whereas respiratory depression, sedation, and nausea have been noted almost immediately.
Cocaine use is prevalent across all socioeconomic strata, including age, demographics, economic, social, political, religious, and livelihood.
There was a slight relationship between high rates of past year illegal drug dependence and high rates of past year cocaine use for persons aged 12 or older at the State level. Seven States ranked in the highest fifth for both measures. The relationship between low rates of past year illegal drug dependence and low rates of past year cocaine use for persons aged 12 or older at the State level was not as strong. Only three States (Hawaii, North Dakota, and South Dakota) ranked in the lowest quintile for both the measures. Interestingly, Washington, which ranked in the highest fifth for past year dependence on illegal drugs, ranked in the lowest fifth for past year use of cocaine among persons aged 12 or older .
Methadone does not get into the bones; this myth likely comes from the debilitating bone and joint pain that is often experienced during opioid withdrawal.
Rates of illegal drug or alcohol dependence or abuse among persons aged 12 or older varied by geographic division in 2001. The lowest rate of illegal drug or alcohol dependence or abuse was observed in the East South Central division (6.0 percent), and the highest rate was in the New England division (9.1 percent).
During 2011, the General Assembly in Pennsylvania is reviewing a Senate bill which would call for banning the sale and possession of synthetic drugs in the state; the bill can be enacted within 60 days after it has been passed.
