Call for Help (225) 372-3618
Delicious Cajun seafood, southern hospitality and soulful live music are among the many reasons why Louisiana attracts people from all over the country.
Sadly though, Louisiana’s many waterways and hidden coastlines also attract drug cartels because they enable easier trafficking. As a result, many residents fall into the habit of drug abuse and eventually develop an addiction. Louisiana residents can get their lives back with the right treatment.
Are you struggling with addiction? Call The Treatment Center today at (225) 372-3618 to get help. We are available to speak to you 24/7. We can also be reached through our online chat option.

Drug Abuse Trends in Louisiana
Marijuana abuse runs rampant in Louisiana, topping the state’s list of commonly abused substances. According to the 2011-2012 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), 367,000 people used marijuana in the past year, and 172,000 used the drug in the past month.
Alcohol abuse is very common in Louisiana. The NSDUH showed that from 2011-2012 a staggering 236,000 individuals needed but did not receive treatment for alcohol use in Louisiana.
Thanks to national and state-level programs, such as Louisiana’s Prescription Drug Monitoring Program, prescription drug abuse has decreased in the state.
As heroin sweeps the nation, Louisiana is experiencing an increase in overdose deaths and heroin addiction. In the first half of 2013, 61 deaths were recorded in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana alone. According to findings from the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals, 110 total heroin overdose deaths occurred in the same year.
Ice and Meth
Louisiana is just across the gulf from Mexico, which means trafficking of ice (potent, mass-produced Mexican meth) is just a boat ride away. Therefore, much of the methamphetamine supply comes from Mexico.
Some of the meth in Louisiana is made in clandestine labs. In 2012, the DEA discovered 55 labs or chemical dumpsites. This number is far less than the 218 meth lab incidents reported in 2010. However, home labs still exist throughout the state, causing health and fire hazards to those nearby.
The Louisiana Drug Control Update reveals that among individuals 12 and older, Louisiana had some of the top ten highest rates for past-year cocaine use in 2007. In 2010, cocaine was also the second most common drug among treatment admissions for state-approved rehab centers in Louisiana.
Other drugs of abuse:
Synthetic drugs: As synthetic drug (e.g. bath salts and Spice) manufacturers continue to come up with different formulas, the state of Louisiana continues to ban them.
Club drugs: “Molly” and GHB are two commonly abused club drugs in Louisiana. They are often taken at clubs, rave parties or at Bourbon Street celebrations.
At The Treatment Center, our trained medical staff can help Louisianans put an end to the cycle of addiction.
