Minnesota’s Substance Abuse Problem
One of the biggest threats to Minnesota residents is substance abuse. In 2011, over 50,000 residents sought treatment at Minnesota rehab centers. Some of the most abused substances in the state are:
• Prescription drugs
• Synthetic drugs
• Club drugs
If you or someone you know is addicted to any of the substances above, call us at (651) 829-3047. You can reach us day or night.
Alcohol abuse is a huge problem throughout the state of Minnesota. In fact, a former government official declared that alcohol was the state’s No.1 drug problem. Among adults, Minnesota has the seventh highest rate of binge drinking in the country.
Over the last few years, Minnesotans have sought treatment for alcohol addiction more than any other type of substance-related addiction. In 2012, there were over 12,000 admissions at alcohol treatment centers.
Prescription Drug Addiction
The Centers for Disease Control called opiate abuse a public health epidemic for the United States. Like many other states, Minnesota has not been able to escape this epidemic. Thousands of residents have become addicted to prescription painkillers such as oxycodone, hydrocodone and fentanyl.
In 2012, community-based rehab centers saw a decrease in admissions for prescription drug abuse. Many people contribute the decline to the state’s Prescription Monitoring Program.
While admissions for prescription drug abuse have gone down, admissions for heroin addiction have steadily increased. More than 3,000 people received heroin treatment at Minnesota drug rehabs in 2011.
Law enforcement and medical professionals are reporting numerous opiate-related overdose deaths. In Hennepin County alone, there were 69 opiate-related overdose deaths in the first half of 2013, almost half of these overdoses involved heroin. Its not just big cities like St. Paul and Minneapolis that are reporting overdose deaths, suburbs like East Bethel are seeing their fair share as well.
After alcohol, marijuana ranks second among treatment admissions at Minnesota drug rehabs. Marijuana is widely abused throughout the state by all age groups. Over 66 percent of treatment admissions for Minnesotans under 18 are for marijuana abuse.
Ten years ago, methamphetamine was prevalent in communities across Minnesota. However, abuse of the drug declined due to meth-labs busts, the restrictions on ephedrine and seizures by the police.
Government officials and law enforcement are now concerned about the resurgence of methamphetamine use. In 2013, meth-related overdose deaths doubled in Ramsey and Hennepin counties; there was also an increase in emergency room visits due to methamphetamine use.
Minnesota is struggling to keep synthetic drugs out of retail stores and gas stations. Synthetic drugs like bath salts and N-bomb have been tied to numerous emergency room visits in Minnesota. N-bomb was also tied to one accidental death in Ramsey County.
The ability to buy synthetic drugs online and the constantly changing formulas have been challenging for law enforcement officials trying to keep these drugs out of the state.
The use of club drugs has increased throughout Minnesota at clubs, concerts and rave parties. Popular club drugs include Molly, LSD and GHB. Many Minnesotans take Molly believing that the drug is harmless. In reality, the drug has been tied to numerous overdoses in the state and across the country.
We realize that drug and alcohol abuse has left many Minnesotans in despair; however, recovery is possible with the appropriate treatment.
