Prescription Drug Abuse in Michigan
Approximately 10.7 percent of Michigan residents aged 12 years and older have used illicit drugs in the past month. Michigan has a high rate of prescription drug abuse with the number of prescriptions filled increasing by 15 percent.
About three-fourths of all prescription drug overdoses include prescription painkillers such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, fentanyl, and hydrocodone, which caused 16,600 deaths in the United States in 2010.
Michigan’s overdose rate skyrocketed to 15.3 percent per 100,000 in population, above the national rate at 12.7 percent per 100,000 in population. In 2013 alone, Michigan doctors issued 21 million prescriptions or 1.4 billion pills. Although they’re readily available, the costs of pills have skyrocketed so much that many have found a cheaper alternative in heroin.
Heroin Abuse in the State
Heroin is cheap and easily accessible throughout the state, especially in metro areas like Detroit. Large quantities of heroin are trafficked into Michigan from South America, Mexico and Africa. The rate of heroin overdoses has increased in Michigan, rising 45 percent between 2006 and 2010.
Since 2012, there have been at least 37 overdose deaths from heroin. In Monroe County, about half of all drug-related deaths involved heroin. Macomb, Wayne, and Oakland counties have also seen a record number of heroin overdose deaths.
According to the Center for Disease Control, heroin use jumped 79 percent from 2007 to 2012. The number of admissions for heroin treatment has doubled from 6,500 in 2002 to 13,600 in 2013 in drug rehab centers in Michigan.
If you or a loved one is having issues with heroin abuse, our heroin treatment center can help you recover. To find out how, contact our admissions counselors today at (248) 430-0456. We’re available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Other Commonly Abused Drugs
In addition to prescription drugs and heroin, Michigan residents also abuse other addictive substances such as:
Cocaine: Cocaine addiction is heaviest in larger metro areas, such as Detroit and Grand Rapids. The price and purity of cocaine has remained stable in Michigan over the past several years.
Methamphetamine: Meth is a big problem in Michigan, with most of the production occurring in the rural parts of the state.
Marijuana: Weed is the most popular illicit drug throughout the state. The majority of marijuana sold in Michigan comes from Mexico. However, synthetic marijuana or weed that is mixed with other chemical substances is another rising issue.
Synthetic drugs: Club drugs are emerging in Michigan. Ecstasy (MDMA), GHB and ketamine (Special K) are popular among teenagers and college students at clubs and rave parties. These drugs have become more dangerous because the chemicals in them are often unknown.
Alcohol: Binge drinking among both adults and youth is common. Approximately 60 percent of Michigan adults aged 18 and older used alcohol in the past month. About 16 percent of underage drinkers ranging from 12 to 17 consumed alcohol in the last month.
