In 2005, Oklahoma had 227,000 people who reported an alcohol addiction and 86,000 who reported a drug addiction. Of those, only 19,000 received treatment at a facility in the state.
Methamphetamine is the biggest drug of concern in Oklahoma. It is produced in Mexico, the southwest United States and in local methamphetamine laboratories. Crack cocaine is a problem, especially in the cities. Heroin abuse is not a significant problem and over the years, demand has decreased in Oklahoma. Black tar heroin is available in limited quantities near the urban areas. As in other state, there has been a marked increase in club drug abuse, especially ecstasy among young people. Prescription drug abuse of drugs like Vicodin and OxyContin are a constant challenge for law enforcement and medical professionals in Oklahoma. Marijuana is available throughout the state.
