The majority of admissions to Utah alcohol and drug rehab centers are for alcohol dependency. The second largest groups of individuals who enter Utah substance abuse centers do so for marijuana use. This is followed by cocaine, methamphetamines and lastly heroin. Alcohol admissions are decreasing. Marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamines, opiates and heroin admissions are increasing. Admittance rates for methamphetamines are rising the sharpest and fastest of all.

Methamphetamine use has become a real problem in Utah. Meth labs make it possible to create the drug cheaply and subsequently sell it at a price that many people can afford. Meth cooks are able to create very pure forms of the drug that are extremely addicting.

Along with meth, prescription drug use is also another huge problem. Hydrocodone, oxycodone and pain killers are used most and are also responsible for a good number of Utah drug and alcohol rehab admission rates. Those addicted to prescription medications are growing are in number. In order to obtain these drugs, people are willing to go to extreme measures. Many initially began by getting them from their own doctors legitimately. Next, they often upgrade to doctor shopping. Pharmaceutical theft and prescription forgery are two other ways that people get these types of drugs when they no longer are able to get them from their doctors. People can also purchase them from drug dealers.

Alcohol and drug use is pretty rampant in the United States. The same is true for other countries. These substances are used often while partying, hanging with friends or simply to relax. Because of this, it is very easy for individuals to become dependent on them. They become ingrained in one’s life and then suddenly it is hard to picture life without them. It is sometimes necessary to re-trains one’s mind concerning the use and abuse of drugs. Utah drug and alcohol rehab facilities work very diligently to help people change their perceptions and views of illicit substance abuse.

Substance abuse centers in Utah come into play after a person has become addicted to drugs or alcohol. They generally are not involved at all in the prevention process. They only deal with problems after the fact. Information collected by surveying organizations concerning drug use, specifically whose using and what they are taking, can only help rehab facilities create specialized programs to meet a specific need. There is not really much that they can do to encourage prevention. They typically don’t have the money to run prevention campaigns. Many are just getting by as it is.

Utah drug and alcohol rehab centers are being forced to deal not only with traditional drugs, i.e., crack, cocaine, heroin and marijuana, but an increasing number of individuals are beginning to take club drugs such as GHB, prescription medications such as Xanax and Vicodin and methamphetamine. Methamphetamine is usually cooked in private kitchens or “labs” or smuggled up from Mexico.
