Oregon is facing an epidemic when it comes to alcohol and drug abuse. According to a report released by the Oregon Substance Abuse Disorder Research Committee, one out of every 10 Oregonians struggles with drug abuse or alcohol abuse. It costs the state roughly $6 billion a year,
includes policing and health care.

Substance abuse disorder is everywhere,” said Dr. Samuel Metz (lead author of the report). One of the report’s main recommendations is to treat abuse like a disease rather than a moral failing.
