In the state of Alabama, drug addition continues to be a major problem. Drugs such as cocaine, heroine, methamphetamines, marijuana, club drugs and prescription pill addiction continue to cause great concern. Alabama drug rehabilitation facilities are working feverishly to treat individuals that come to them for care. A recent study by the National Survey on Drug Use and Health found that 7% of residents in Alabama over the age of 12, used an illegal or illicit drug in the past 30 days prior to the survey. This is a pretty significant number. While Alabama drub abuse rehab centers will treat some of these individuals they won’t work with everyone because many people will not seek help.

Marijuana is the drug used most often in Alabama, according to a number of sources and studies on drug use and abuse in the state. Cocaine is a widely used as well and has become a challenge for Alabama drug treatment centers and law enforcement agencies. There have also been reports that an increasing number of people are beginning to using heroin in Alabama and many more resident are checking into drug treatment centers in Alabama addictions for this particular drug.

Law enforcement agencies in the state are quickly discovering that methamphetamine use is on the rise. There are an increasing number meth labs popping up around the state. A pure form of the drug, known as ice, is becoming increasingly popular and its’ distribution to addicts increased. This is beginning to become extremely problematic, especially for Alabama drug rehab centers that are charged with treating them.

Club drugs in Alabama are a serious problem as they are in many other states. More and more young persons are facing charges for the possession of club drugs in Alabama. Individuals, especially younger persons, are suffering from seizures and overdoses at an increasing and alarming rate. Some of the most common forms of these drugs in Alabama are GHB, MDMA and LSD.

Prescription drug abuse in Alabama is also on the rise as it is in other parts of the country. The one most abused is hydrocodone. However Vicodine and OxyContin are used quite a bit as well. Drug rehab centers in Alabama are seeing a huge jump in treatment for individuals addicted to prescription medication.

In 2006, nearly 21,000 individuals checked into Alabama drug or alcohol treatment centers. This was a slight increase from the previous year. While this is encouraging because these individuals are getting help, there are many more that are not. A NSADH study found that over 90,000 individuals in Alabama reported being in need of some sort of drug or alcohol treatment but had not received it in the year prior to the study.
