Call for Help (808) 217-9501
Hawaii is made up of eight major islands located in the Pacific Ocean. The island state is home to approximately 1.2 million residents and is visited by 7 to 12 million tourists per year. The geography of Hawaii makes the state susceptible to drug trafficking, which in turn fuels drug abuse.
The majority of the drugs in Hawaii arrive by air, sea or mail. To make matters worse, the state’s booming tourism industry further contributes to the problem by creating a higher demand for drugs.

Commonly Abused Drugs in Hawaii
The beautiful Hawaiian Islands are not only popular vacation destinations. They are also known by many for having an abundance of drugs. Below are some of the most commonly abused drugs by Hawaiian residents and tourists alike:
Marijuana - Hawaii is a major grower of marijuana, especially on Oahu, also known as the Big Island.
Drug rehabs in Hawaii saw more admissions for marijuana in 2009 than for any other category of drug, according to the Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS).
Alcohol - Alcohol is the third most abused drug in Hawaii after marijuana and crystal meth or “ice”. Upon entering addiction treatment centers, many users reveal that they abuse alcohol with other substances such as cocaine and marijuana.
Methamphetamine - According to the TEDS, drug rehabs in Hawaii saw the second highest percentage of meth-related treatment admissions in the country in 2008.
Alarmingly, the total number of admissions for methamphetamine abuse and dependence was 1,978 in 2009.
The rise in methamphetamine abuse has caused violence, gang activity, and public health concerns, as well as many social and economic issues.
Cocaine - Cocaine is widely available throughout Hawaii and is often abused with alcohol and marijuana.
The demand for cocaine in Hawaii is multiplied by the huge tourist business. During the peak tourist season, law enforcement sees a spike in cocaine trafficking.
Black tar heroin - Black tar heroin is the most common type of heroin in Hawaii. Although commonly abused in the cities, it is rarely found in rural parts of the state.
Club drugs - Among college and military populations in Hawaii, the abuse of club drugs at beach parties, bars, dance clubs, and raves is increasingly common.
Club drugs include MDMA (Molly), GHB, mushrooms, LSA (an extract from Hawaiian baby woodrose seeds) and LSD.
Over the past ten years, MDMA or ecstasy has become the club drug of choice among Hawaiians.
Prescription drugs - Drug overdose deaths in Hawaii have doubled from 1999 to 2010, according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC). A majority of these deaths are caused by prescription drugs such as OxyContin, morphine and Vicodin.
