In an interview for The Wash's story entitled, Fatal DUI crashes hit record high last year, ‘no excuse’ for impaired driving, Caron's senior clinical director of women’s and family services, Erin Goodhart, said the fear and uncertainty of the pandemic impacted everyone differently. She said experts at Caron saw an increase in relapse rates during the pandemic among people with substance use disorders. Additionally, Erin reinforced that when there is an increase in substance use, there are increased risks and consequences.


“The alcohol-related accidents and fatalities are really a symptom of a bigger issue and bigger need here, which is access to care. People knowing that if I’m struggling with anxiety or stress or depression or I’m hyper-vigilant all the time and constantly on edge that there are other healthier ways to manage that stress.”
