Call for Help (307) 462-2028
Wyoming is nicknamed “The Cowboy State” of the U.S. It offers rodeos, horseback riding and ranches, which further reinforce this historical nickname.
Although the state has a lot to offer residents and travelers, many individuals succumb to the highly addictive nature of drugs and alcohol. Every year, thousands of Wyoming residents — young and old, wealthy and not — become addicted to meth, prescription drugs, alcohol and many other substances.
If you feel lost and broken because of substance abuse, we can help. Contact The Treatment Center today at (307) 462-2028. Our admissions counselors are available to answer your call 24/7/365.

Drug Abuse in Wyoming
Although rural America is not the epicenter of drug abuse, Wyoming has a significant drug abuse problem. Listed below are some of the most abused substances among Wyoming residents:
Alcohol abuse is a major issue in Wyoming; it is by far the most abused substance in the state. In 2009, alcohol sent almost 4,000 Wyoming residents to community-based treatment centers — a majority of the total 6,224 admissions for that year.
In the early- to mid-2000s, meth scourged Wyoming. The 2006 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) revealed that Wyoming had the second highest percentage of meth users, ages 12 and older, in the United States. The survey also showed that Wyoming had the highest percentage of 18- to 25-year-old meth users.
If left untreated, many meth users often cycle in and out of the penal system for crimes related to their drug habits.
Jail and prison can help meth addicts quit using while they are locked up; however, incarceration does not address an addict’s underlying reasons for abusing meth in the first place. That is why treatment for meth addiction remains a key component in Wyoming’s battle against crystal meth.
Prescription Pain Pills
Oftentimes, prescription opiates like OxyContin and Vicodin are easy to find for most Wyoming residents because they can simply ask friends and family for them. Other individuals acquire prescription narcotics by stealing from medicine cabinets, either at their home or at someone else’s.
Drug take-back programs and the Wyoming Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) have effectively decreased the illicit supply of prescription meds. This has resulted in a reduction in prescription drug abuse, addiction and overdoses.
Many Wyoming addicts are now resorting to heroin, instead of prescription pills, as a cheaper and easier-to-find alternative. Because of this trend, healthcare and law enforcement officials expect to see an increase in heroin use in Wyoming.
Other Dangerous Drugs
Club drugs: A number of teens and young adults often abuse club drugs like GHB (“liquid ecstasy”) and LSD (“acid”) at night clubs and rave parties.
At The Treatment Center, we can help Wyoming residents transition from a life of addiction to a life in recovery.
