Mississippi

Mississippi, the birthplace of Elvis Presley, is full of opportunities. Whether it’s because of the marine life, the Gulf Islands, or the zoo, residents enjoy the state and its many offerings.

Unfortunately though, many Mississippians are also drawn to drugs and alcohol. According to the National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services (N-SSATS), 6,048 Mississippi residents sought treatment at Mississippi rehab centers in 2012.

Drug and Alcohol Abuse in Mississippi

Like many other rehab facilities, we often encounter Mississippi residents who are abusing the following substances:

Prescription drugs

In 2012, 90 percent of the overdose deaths in Mississippi were caused by prescription drugs like OxyContin, codeine, Xanax, and Ritalin.  

Not only have prescription drug overdose deaths quadrupled since 1999, they also surpass the number of fatal overdoses for heroin and cocaine combined, according to the Mississippi State Department of Health.  

Sadly, teens are especially likely to abuse prescription drugs due to easy access in most homes.

Methamphetamine (ice) 
 

Just a few years ago, homemade meth was a huge problem in Mississippi. But in 2010, the state enacted a law requiring a prescription for pseudoephedrine (a primary ingredient in meth). This law resulted in a tremendous decrease in meth labs in Mississippi from 938 in 2009 to only 5 in 2012, according to the El Paso Intelligence Center (EPIC). 

Unfortunately though, meth remains a public health issue. This is because a purer, crystal clear variety called “ice” is coming in through South Mississippi from Mexican super labs. 

Alcohol 

Alcohol is not usually the primary substance of abuse among treatment admissions in Mississippi. However, it is mentioned by most patients as a substance they abuse along with other drugs, according to a 2012 study by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

 
Synthetic drugs 
 

Synthetic drugs such as K2, Spice, bath salts, and N-bomb have made their way across the country and into Mississippi. Project Synergy was developed in order for local, state, and federal resources to team up against the national synthetic drug market. Thanks to the project, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) recently seized a large shipment of synthetic drugs in Gulfport, MS.  

The partners of Project Synergy work hard to keep synthetic drugs out of Mississippi. Unfortunately though, some of these dangerous substances still make their way into the lives of many Mississippians. The side effects of synthetic drug abuse include extreme paranoia, hallucinations, rapid heartbeat, and heart attack.

Marijuana  

Every year, thousands of Mississippi residents abuse marijuana. Actually, marijuana addiction is the most common reason residents seek help at Mississippi rehab centers, according to the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP).  

We know how hard it is to overcome addiction without assistance. Regardless of the drugs Mississippi residents are abusing, The Treatment Center is here to give them the drug and alcohol treatment they need.
