Madison, WI has relatively low numbers of drug and alcohol abuse. In fact, it is believed that the only addictive substance that will result in lives lost this year in this city, is tobacco. There are just 148 people who abuse prescription medication and 55 cocaine addicts. No data exists on people abusing heroin at all. It is believed that this is mainly due to the significant efforts of the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS).

The DHS Approach

The DHS is responsible for studying substance abuse, and to use the results of these studies to drive prevention priorities. They started doing this in 2006, when the State Epidemiological Outcomes Workgroup (SEOW) was established. Their first order of business was to publish the Epidemiological Profile on Alcohol and Other Drug Use in Wisconsin (EPAODUW), which they have repeated every other year. The latest report was published in 2016.

In the latest EPAODUW, indicators were included on substance use, substance misuse, and substance abuse. Additionally, it looked at the consequences and what the risk factors for turning towards substances were. This also helps to shape intervention, thereby preventing people from turning to addictive substances in the first place.

The main findings of the latest EPAODUW were:

  • That alcohol use continues to be high. In fact, it is 1.3 times higher than the national average. 63% of adults consume alcohol in the state, compared to 53% nationally. 22% of adults binge drink, and this is a particular concern with pregnant women. The consequence of this is that more people require treatment for alcoholism, but also for health effects, such as liver cirrhosis.
  • That there has been a significant increase in the number of people who abuse prescription medication. Young adults are at particular risk of this, with 9% of those between the ages of 18 and 25 admitting to abusing prescription drugs. Perhaps more worrisome is that 15% of high school students state that they have abused prescription medication.
  • That there has been an increase in the number of people who have died as a result of improperly using prescription drugs.
  • That, in the state of Wisconsin, most drug overdoses are caused by "other opioids", followed by heroin, and then by benzodiazepines.

That being said, a number of positive trends have emerged, and particularly in Madison. Madison is no longer representative of the state of Wisconsin as a whole, because its approach is working so well. What has been found there is that:

  • Fewer high school students now binge drink, with rates well below the national average.
  • The number of deaths in motor vehicle accidents that involve alcohol has dropped significantly.
  • There are less people who abuse cannabis.

The Focus Area

Because of the latest results of the EPAODUW, the DHS has identified five specific areas in which further efforts have to be made. Those are:

  1. Underage drinking
  2. Binge drinking in adults
  3. Women who are pregnant consuming alcohol
  4. Drinking and driving
  5. Prescription painkiller abuse

The DHS aims to achieve this through better access to detox and rehab treatment centers, an increased understanding of addiction, and strong prevention efforts.
