Call for Help (816) 826-3004
Missouri law enforcement officers continue to track down and bust drug traffickers, taking large quantities of drugs such as meth and marijuana off the streets. Because the majority of drugs in Missouri come from out-of-state suppliers, drug busts only decrease sales until other shipments come into the state. Despite this and other earnest attempts to lower drug and alcohol abuse rates, Missouri has the seventh highest drug mortality rate in the U.S.
Although substance abuse remains a significant problem for many Missourians, The Treatment Center can help. Our professional medical staff can heal residents of Missouri at our accredited drug rehab centers.

Since 2007, the average number of prescription drug overdoses in Missouri has been on the rise and has exceeded the national average. Despite this trend, Missouri is the only state in the U.S. that does not have a database of patients and the prescriptions they have received. Other states have implemented Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs (PDMPs) to prevent “doctor shopping”. They have set up these databases in hopes of decreasing the illicit supply of addictive prescription drugs.
Xanax, OxyContin, and Vicodin are the most widely abused prescription drugs in Missouri.
Much of the heroin in Missouri comes from Mexico. For the past few years, the potency of this drug has increased and the cost has decreased. Also the stigma associated with “shooting up” has dissipated because heroin is now sold in forms which can be smoked or snorted instead. These three factors have raised interest among teens and young adults, which has caused the rate of heroin abuse to increase in the state.
Marijuana and alcohol:
Marijuana and alcohol remain the most widely abused substances in Missouri. Some may argue that the effects of these substances are less severe than the effects of meth, cocaine, heroin, MDMA, and prescription drugs. However, marijuana and alcohol abuse may signify abuse of more dangerous drugs. Oftentimes, individuals smoke or ingest marijuana or drink alcohol in order to amplify the effects of other drugs or in some cases, to cancel them out.
Alcohol may be legal, but its effects can be devastating. In fact, alcohol was responsible for the death of 366 Missourians in 2011, according to the Missouri Department of Mental Health. Also, in 2012, there were 14,367 admissions for alcohol treatment centers.
