Methamphetamines, crack cocaine and heroin are three of the most prevalent drugs used in New Mexico. In some areas, these pose a major threat to the quality of life of the community. Many of the drugs used in New Mexico are smuggled in from Mexico. Though there is a continued effort to keep drugs out, they always find their way in. Mexican black tar (heroin) and even methamphetamines which was once mostly grown locally, is being manufactured in Mexico and sent north for distribution. Because of New Mexico’s location, there is a lot of drug trafficking. As a result, the amount and types of drugs available are very abundant. This puts an increased strain on New Mexico drug rehabilitation centers which must treat those who become addicted to these drugs.

The admittance rates of drug addicts into rehab have increased over the last 15 years. More and more individuals are seeking help for drug habits, much more so then for alcohol abuse. The reasons for this vary. Some people may choose to deal with alcoholism on their own, the heavy consumption of alcohol may not longer be viewed as a significant problem or alcohol use may simply pale in comparison to drug use in people’s mind and so is not considered as bad a problem. Conversely, admittance to alcohol and drug rehabilitation for drug use has increased steadily. Not only are these numbers getting higher but the particular drugs that persons are using are beginning to change.

Cocaine, crack, heroin and club drugs such as Acid, LSD and PCP have been pretty popular for some time now. New Mexico drug rehabilitation facilities have and continue to see lots of patients addicted to these substances. They are now beginning to see patients addicted to other types of drugs as well. There is starting to be heavy usage of drugs such as GHB, methamphetamines and prescription medications.

Many people are using prescription pain killers to get high, not for medical purposes. Anti-anxiety pills are being abused at high rates as well. What this means for New Mexico drug rehab facilities is that they need to be ready to both educate individuals who abuse these drugs, along with their families about the particular danger of each and then create a specialized program to give them the best chance of beating their addictions.

Defeating drug abuse takes a two-pronged approach. There must be both a heavy emphasis on prevention and treatment. The community, which is made up of families, churches, law enforcement and school must make an effort to discourage drug use before it begins. Then rehabilitation and treatment centers must bring up the rear and help those who have developed a drug and alcohol problem. Now, it is quite obvious that drug and alcohol addictions won’t be eradicated even if prevention and treatment measures are strong, but they can help significantly.
