Prescription Drug Abuse in Montana
Montana suffers from a rising prescription drug epidemic. In Missoula County alone, many teens and young adults are abusing prescription drugs at an alarming rate. About 10 percent of Montana teens admit to abusing prescription painkillers in the past month, with 23 percent having abused them by the time they’ve reached 12th grade.
More than 300 Montanans die each year from prescription drug overdose. People are 15 times more likely to overdose on prescription pills than meth, heroin and cocaine together. Because of this high overdose rate, treatment admissions for prescription drug addiction have swelled at rehab centers in Montana.
With such an increase in prescription drug addiction, robberies of pharmacies, home invasions, and violent crimes continue to rise. However, government officials and state and local law enforcement are creating policies (e.g. Montana Prescription Drug Monitoring program) to reduce this.
However, you or a loved one can receive effective treatment for prescription drug addiction by call us immediately at (406) 371-9247. Our admissions counselors are also available to confidentially chat with you online.
Crystal Meth Use
Methamphetamine use continues to soar all over the state. While Montana once ranked fifth in the nation for meth abuse, it now ranks 39th in the nation for methamphetamine abuse according to the most recent data.
Although there has been a sharp decrease in meth use, it is still widely abused and meth lab busts are occurring statewide. About 50 percent of Montana’s arrests are methamphetamine-related.
According to Montana’s High Intensity Drug Trafficking program, there has been a recent spike in thefts and burglaries due to the increase in sales of Mexican methamphetamine. From 2009-2010, authorities seized about 85 pounds of methamphetamine, 137 pounds of cocaine, and 6,980 pounds of marijuana.
Other Commonly Abused Drugs
Marijuana is heavily trafficked into Montana given its close proximity to Canada. After alcohol, it’s one of the most commonly abused drugs in the nation. The use of marijuana and synthetic marijuana are popular among teens and young adults. Marijuana arrests have tripled with 1,502 marijuana-related arrests occurring in 2012 alone.
Alcohol is consumed by many underage drinkers. It’s estimated that there are 44,000 underage consumers in Montana who drink every year. While some children are trying alcohol as early as nine years old, 50 percent of Montanans have tried alcohol by age 15. About 49.5 percent of 12th graders have drank alcohol in the past month. With the early use of alcohol and binge drinking in their teen years, Montanans are more prone to alcoholism in their adult life.
