Drug & Alcohol Detoxification Facilities in New Mexico

Each American state has its own unique attributes, but there aren’t many states with the level of character as New Mexico. Since it’s located on the U.S.-Mexico border, New Mexico’s culture is a unique blend of industrial America and traditional Mexico; this is even reflected in the state’s name. As well, New Mexico has some of the most unique natural scenery in the entire Western hemisphere. If that’s not enough, New Mexico is home to the world’s largest hot air balloon festival, the world’s largest enchilada, and the world’s largest corn-hole board. Clearly, there’s plenty to do in New Mexico without even thinking about alcohol and drugs, so it should come as no surprise that more and more people are choosing New Mexico as the destination for their addiction recovery needs.

New Mexico Addiction & Detox Statistics

  • Like the rest of the United States, New Mexico had a major problem with prescription painkiller addiction throughout the 2000s and early 2010s. In fact, it’s estimated that 48 percent of the New Mexico population was addiction to some type of painkiller in 2008.
  • Although a number of opioid addicts have switched from painkillers to heroin, opioids remains a major problem for New Mexico today. In fact, half of all overdose deaths are caused by heroin and painkillers.
  • Between 2001 and 2014, overdose deaths in New Mexico have increased substantially. Sources estimate an increase of at least 146 percent in annual overdose deaths.
  • According to studies, eight of the ten leading causes of preventable death in New Mexico are from alcohol, tobacco, and drugs
  • Due to New Mexico being on the U.S.-Mexico border, there tends to be a lot of drugs being smuggled into the U.S. through New Mexico. Between drug smuggling and high rates of drug use in New Mexico, it’s estimated that the economic cost of illicit substances in New Mexico is $2.5 billion, or about $1,250 per person.

New Mexico Takes Opioid Addiction Awareness to Next Level

All across the United States, public officials and concerned citizens alike have been developing new ways to increase awareness of the dangers of opioid drugs. In fact, President Obama recently enacted a Prescription Opioid and Heroin Epidemic Awareness Week, which prompted New Mexico to develop new ways of increasing public awareness of the growing opioid addiction problem. In particular, New Mexico officials have decided to increase the amount of addiction education being offered to teens in public schools since this represents one of the demographics that is most vulnerable to substance abuse.
