Arizona drug and alcohol treatment centers help individuals that are addicted to cocaine, heroin, methamphetamines and even marijuana in large numbers. Arizona is located along the Mexican border and is situated alongside several major drug trafficking cities and operations. Drugs smugglers bring in cocaine, meth and heroin in large quantities, creating a constant supply of illicit drugs. In 2008, nearly 2,000 kgs of cocaine were seized, almost 400,000 kgs of marijuana and 263 kgs of methamphetamines. These are the same drugs that Arizona drug rehabilitation centers work hard to help individuals get clean from.

Heroin is one of the most commonly abused drugs in Arizona. The type most commonly used and made available to addicts and users is called black tar which s smuggled in from Mexico. Methamphetamines are also brought over from Mexico in large quantities. Meth use is rising sharply not just in Arizona, but across the United States. However, in most cases, it is made in the states, in small, rural meth labs. The situation is a bit different in Arizona where much of the meth is smuggled over from Mexico.

Oxycotin is a growing in availability and use in Arizona. This is similar to what is going on all across the country. Prescription drug abuse is increasing significantly all America at an alarming rate. Besides oxycotin, hydrocodone, vicodin and xanax are other commonly abused prescription drugs in Arizona. Drug and alcohol treatment centers in Arizona report that more then half of all individuals entering their facilities are addicted to prescription medications. This is a huge number of individuals. People that abuse these drugs often obtain them through doctor shopping, forgery of prescriptions, and pretending to have certain illnesses or injuries so that they are prescribed them. Prescription drugs are also smuggled over from Mexico.

Arizona drug rehabilitation facilities treat individuals who are addicted to cocaine, heroin, meth and prescription medications. These centers work on the back end of the drug problem, while drug enforcement agencies work on the forefront, attempting to prevent drug smuggling and distribution. Drug treatment facilities in Arizona work to help individuals or victims of the drug trade, specifically those with addiction problems and their families.

Drug abuse in Arizona is a serious problem. It is aggravated by the fact that the state is situated alongside cities where there are significant drug smuggling operations. Drugs make their way to the state on a consistent basis. This means that addicts and those that are considering using, have a fresh supply of drugs. This makes the job and challenge of Arizona drug and alcohol treatment facilities much tougher but also very important.
