Commonly Abused Drugs in Alabama
Many Alabama residents begin abusing drugs to have fun or to self-medicate. Listed below are the most commonly abused substances reported by Alabama rehab centers:
The non-medical use of opioid pain killers such as hydrocodone (Vicodin), fentanyl, morphine, and oxycodone (OxyContin) has been on the rise in Alabama since 2003, according to the Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS).
Alabama led the nation in prescription narcotic use in 2012. That year, an average of 1.17 narcotic (mind-altering) prescriptions was filled for every privately insured Alabama resident.
Heroin use is also on the rise in Alabama. Many Alabama residents who start taking prescription pain pills become hooked. In an effort to cut back on costs, they turn to the cheaper, more potent alternative — heroin. This switch often leads to heroin addiction and increases the risk of fatal overdose.
Similar to other U.S. states, marijuana is by far the most abused substance in Alabama. For 2010, the marijuana admissions at Alabama addiction treatment centers were more than twice the number of admissions for opiates, cocaine, and stimulants.
Although legal, alcohol is a big health threat to Alabama residents. The 2011-2012 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) revealed that 199,000 Alabama residents, ages 12 and older, abused or were dependent upon alcohol — almost double the number of individuals who abused or were dependent upon illicit substances in the same time frame.
Alcohol treatment centers report a large number of admissions; however, thousands of Alabamans who need treatment for alcoholism never receive it.
Cocaine (powdered or crack):
In 1994, powered and crack cocaine abuse rates for Alabama were at their highest, according to the Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS). Since then, cocaine admissions at Alabama drug rehabs have steadily declined.
However, the NSDUH revealed that still nearly 50,000 Alabamans aged 12 and older used cocaine in 2011. Furthermore, many Alabamans who abused cocaine in 2011 made up a percentage of the 88,000 residents that needed but did not receive treatment for illicit drug use.
Club drugs - Club drugs abused in Alabama include MDMA or “Molly,” LSD or “acid” and GHB.
“Molly” is gaining popularity among teens, young adults and even affluent businesspeople. Although “Molly” makes users feel care free and happy initially, studies show that long-term effects can include depression, extreme weight loss, anxiety, and insomnia. These symptoms are the result of depleted serotonin levels, a naturally occurring chemical in the brain that controls sleep, appetite, and mood.
Synthetic drugs - In May of 2014, Alabama law enforcement agencies seized more than 200 pounds of synthetic drugs, including Spice and “bath salts”. The drug bust was a result of Project Synergy, a national effort to eradicate synthetic drug trafficking.
Drug and alcohol abuse places users at risk for addiction and financial, legal or social turmoil. However, The Treatment Center can help.
