South Dakota

Legendary attractions and friendly people have earned South Dakota the slogan: “Great faces. Great places.” It is the home of Mount Rushmore and the famous Native American chief, Crazy Horse.

Not too long ago, South Dakota was also known for its meth problem. Despite federal and local law enforcement successfully getting meth under control, many South Dakotans abuse other drugs and alcohol each day.

Alcohol and Drug Abuse in South Dakota

The Treatment Center is equipped to help South Dakota residents end their battle against addiction to a multitude of substances. Among the most commonly abused substances in South Dakota are:


Three South Dakota High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) task forces combined powers in 1996 to stamp out the state’s meth crisis. In 2000, once they had a handle on methamphetamine, all drugs were added to the list of substances to be reckoned with by the HIDTA task forces. 

Luckily, South Dakota rehabs have seen a drastic decline in meth admissions in recent years.


Although HIDTA task forces have minimized the flow of meth and other drugs into the state, thousands of South Dakotans need treatment for alcohol addiction.

In fact, alcohol is the most abused substance in South Dakota. In 2012, alcohol made up 33% of the state’s total substance use treatment admissions, according to a study by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. Additionally, over half of the patients who sought drug treatment in 2012 at South Dakota rehabs also abused alcohol.


Despite South Dakota having some of the toughest marijuana laws in the Midwest, “weed” is the second most abused drug in South Dakota. According to the 2009 Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS), 2,034 residents entered treatment for marijuana abuse.

Prescription drugs 

Like most of the U.S., South Dakota recently experienced high numbers of prescription drug addiction. As a result, the state enacted a Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) in July of 2010. The PDMP and new laws that restrict access to prescription medication are effectively keeping prescription drug abuse under control.


According to online news sources, South Dakota does not share the national trend of increased heroin abuse. However, federal and local officials are preparing for the worst. They expect heroin abuse to rise as a result of the recent decline in prescription painkiller abuse. 

Other drugs of abuse 

Club drugs - Club drugs, namely MDMA or “Molly”, are gaining popularity across the nation. South Dakota is no exception to this trend.

Club drugs are often snorted through the nose, taken in pill form, or added to beverages and are often not as pure as drug dealers claim. For example, ketamine, ecstasy, and “Molly” are often mixed with other drugs like meth, heroin, bath salts, or even household products like detergent. The combination of substances is often more dangerous than the pure form of these drugs.

Synthetic drugs - Due to the illegal nature of LSD, meth, marijuana and cocaine, chemists have created new formulas to mimic these drugs and bypass law enforcement. The resulting substances are often dangerously potent and sometimes deadly.

Some examples of synthetic drugs found in South Dakota include: Spice, bath salts and N-bomb. 

Regardless of which substance is adding unnecessary turmoil to your life, we can help. At The Treatment Center, you can overcome the crippling effects of addiction.
