Meth Abuse, Addiction and Rehab in New Mexico
Among all the illegal drugs abused in New Mexico, methamphetamine is the greatest drug threat to the state. In 2004, there were 72 drug lab seizures in New Mexico, but by 2011 the state reported only 3 drug lab seizures. While law enforcement restrictions and federal laws have hampered the number of clandestine meth labs in New Mexico, meth abuse and addiction rates continue to remain a problem. Mexican criminal groups have supplemented the decrease in local meth production by trafficking the drug across the border. These criminal groups are smuggling meth into New Mexico not just for residents, but for shipment to other states such as Illinois, California and New York. The area known as the "Four Corners Region", where Arizona, Utah, New Mexico and Colorado meet has become a pivotal location for the trafficking and distribution of meth.
During the first part of 2013 NFLIS laboratories in Albuquerque reported that 25.2% of all Albuquerque drug reports were for meth; during that some time period the national average was 14.2%. The state also has an increase in the number of residents seeking New Mexico drug rehabilitation for meth addiction. In 2012, New Mexico drug rehab programs treated 719 individuals for meth addiction as their primary substance of abuse. This group made up 10.9% of all New Mexico drug rehab enrollments during 2012, an increase from 2010 when meth addiction treatment admissions totaled 9.1% of all drug rehab enrollments in the state. The largest age group to attend drug rehab for meth addiction in New Mexico during 2012 was between 31-35 years old.
Alcohol Addiction: A Major Problem in New Mexico
New Mexico has taken an aggressive stance on drunk driving. Residents report seeing advertising against driving while intoxicated through several media sources including billboards, TV. and print campaigns. Drunk drivers have caused a number of fatalities. In 2012, 365 alcohol-impaired driving fatalities occurred. During that same year, 10,126 driving under the influence arrests were made.
Generally, alcohol addiction rates from state to state vary. However, in New Mexico the number of drug rehab enrollments for alcohol addiction are exceptionally higher than average. In 2012, 39% of the drug rehab admissions in New Mexico stated that alcohol was their primary substance of abuse. This group made up the majority of treatment admissions in the state during that year. Of the 2,581 individuals receiving alcohol addiction treatment in New Mexico during 2012, 73.9% were male and 26.1% were female. The age groups enrolling into New Mexico drug rehab programs varied with the largest number of individuals receiving treatment being between 26-30 years old.
Alcohol and Drug Addiction Treatment in New Mexico
The decision to get help overcoming addiction is a pivotal moment in an addict's life. While it can sometimes take several attempts before lasting sobriety can be achieved, every step the individual makes towards changing their destructive ways is a step in the right direction. When alcohol or drug addiction have taken control of one's life outside support and guidance is necessary in changing their ways.
In order to fully address alcohol and drug addiction enrolling in a long-term residential or inpatient program is necessary. Statistics show that recovering individuals who remain in treatment for 90 days or longer have the best chances of remaining clean and sober after rehab. This is because inpatient and residential programs that last three months or longer provide the recovering person with the opportunity to get away from their daily lives and remain focused on their recovery. During their time in rehab they reside at the treatment center and receive the support they need during this difficult transition into a sober life. They are able to live and participate in a drug rehab program alongside other likeminded recovering individuals and develop more constructive ways of handling stress and life's ups and downs. These programs include a wide array of treatment modalities (e.g. addiction counseling, behavioral therapy, behavior modification, life skills development) and prepare the recovering individual for life back home.
