||Arizona Drug and Alcohol Intervention and Treatment Programs for Addiction
According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (2003), more
than 50% of the Arizona population (aged 12 or older) reported the
past month use of alcohol. Around 19% of the people in the age group
of 12-17 years and more than 58% in the age group of 18-25 years reported
using alcohol past month. Among the people of 26 years or older the
rate is above 53%. Drug
and alcohol rehabilitation in arizona is in high demand
for its population.
In the survey, more than 24% of the Arizona people showed binge alcohol use and around 40% 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, past month binge alcohol use is around 12%. In the state, 9.29% of the total population showed alcohol dependence or abuse in past year.
Most of the major illicit drugs are easily available throughout Arizona. Cocaine in large quantities and Mexican black tar heroin are readily available in metropolitan areas. However, elsewhere in the state, the latter is generally not available in significant quantities. Mexican brown powder heroin is becoming increasingly available.
is considered the most widely used illegal drug in Arizona. Along
with the predominant Mexican type, locally-produced and Canada-produced
marijuana are also available. The demand and availability of crystal
methamphetamine, which has dominated street level sales throughout
Arizona, have continued to increase.
Furthermore, the proliferation of clandestine laboratories and the increase of production of methamphetamine have become major problems in the state. MDMA, which poses a considerable drug threat to the state, is readily available and abused in Arizona. Many believe that MDMA is fast replacing cocaine among younger users.
The most commonly abused diverted pharmaceuticals include hydrocodone,
benzodiazepine, oxycodone, diazepam, steroids, and codeine. Abuse
of jimsonweed and LSD by teenagers continue to show an upward trend..
