According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (2003), around 37% of the Alabama population (aged 12 or older) reported the use of alcohol in the past month. 15% of the people in the age group of 12-17 years and 51% in the age group of 18-25 years reported using alcohol past month. Among the people of 26 years or older the rate is more than 37%.

In the survey, 18% of the of the Alabama people showed binge alcohol use and more than 46% reported perceptions of great risk of having five or more drinks of an alcoholic beverage once or twice a week. In the age group of 12-17, the past month binge alcohol use is more than 8%. In the state, 6.08% of the total population showed alcohol dependence or abuse in past year.



Drug Abuse

Cocaine addiction is a large drug threat, as anywhere in the U.S.; in Alabama, it is available almost everywhere in the state. However, in recent times, Methamphetamine addiction has surpassed cocaine addiction as the biggest drug threat that Alabama faces. Marijuana also continues to have a strong presence in the state. MDMA, LSD, GHB, and Ketamine are readily available throughout college campuses. Alabama is also a major market for Dilaudid.




A pure form of heroin, which can be smoked or snorted, is becoming available in Alabama. Availability and low cost make it more attractive to new users. An increase in club drug abuse among young people and diverted pharmaceuticals misuse can be seen across the state. Increase in arrests, overdoses, and seizures of designer drugs indicate a trend toward increased availability and trafficking.

1National Survey on Drug Use and Health (2002) indicate that 1.88% of Alabama citizens reported past year dependence on illicit drugs. A survey conducted among high school students shows that 36.1% reported trying marijuana at least once in their lifetime. Among 12th graders the number is as high as 45%.
