To determine which states have the biggest drug problems, WalletHub ranked the states in three overall categories: drug use and addiction; law enforcement; and drug health issues and rehab. These categories included 20 relevant metrics that were weighted and averaged to calculate overall score. Among other data points, the metrics included the share of teenagers who used illicit drugs in the past month, overdose deaths per capita, drug arrests per capita, share of adults who needed but didn't receive treatment for illicit drug use in the past year, and the number of substance abuse treatment facilities per 100,000 people.

The report also includes interviews with experts in the fields of medicine, psychology, criminal justice, and public health policy on ways to combat the opioid epidemic -- indicating just how complex the problem is and how difficult any solutions will be.

"There won't be a silver bullet that will solve this epidemic," said Courtney R. Yarbrough, an assistant professor at Emory University Rollins School of Public Health.

Mark Concordia, an associate professor of criminal justice at Roberts Wesleyan College, calls for "a multiprong holistic approach that prioritizes treatment over punishment while aggressively pursuing drug dealers with more serious charges."

Sharon Levy, MD, president of the Association for Medical Education and Research in Substance Abuse (AMERSA) and an associate professor of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School, points out that it's important to understand addiction as a medical condition rather than "bad behavior" -- destigmatizing the problem and making it easier for someone suffering to get help.

"Addiction is a chronic medical disorder in which patients lose control over drug use," Levy said. "It is a treatable condition."

Hurricane season is always a stressful time for the Caribbean, the Gulf coast, and the Southeast. Last year was especially so, when Hurricane Harvey slammed into Houston, causing up to 0 billion in damages, Hurricane Irma hit Florida hard, and Hurricane Maria decimated Puerto Rico.

In Puerto Rico, power has still not been fully restored in some areas eight months after the storm. The mental toll of the storm has been tremendous as well, as the overall suicide rate in the territory increased 29% in 2017, according to the Puerto Rico Department of Public Health.

The 2018 hurricane season in the Atlantic Basin runs from June 1 through November 30.


The Bourbon virus is part of a group called thogotoviruses, and it's relatively new on the radar. There have only been a few cases so far, mostly in the South and Midwest, and some of these patients died. The virus is thought to spread through the bite of an infected tick, but the exact way it infects people is still unknown, according to the CDC.

People who become infected with the Bourbon virus may develop flu-like symptoms as well as nausea and vomiting. They may also have low white blood cell and platelet counts.
