According to a 2008-2009 report that SAMHSA (or Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration), the people who live in Colorado are some of the highest users of marijuana, alcohol and cocaine in the country. 38% of young adults said in the survey that they had used marijuana, which is higher than the national average. This theme follows through with the rest of the demographic groups, as the drug is the most abused drug in the state. Most of the marijuana comes from out of state, as opposed to grown in-state. Other illegal drugs were at 11%, higher than the national average of 8%. Those drugs include cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine (or meth). In fact, the usage of heroin appears to be increasing in the state. Club drugs are often commonly used in Colorado (MDMA, LSD, GHB and Ketamine, to name a few).
The use of drugs in the state is only going to go up and you do not want to be another statistic of people who died from the use of a drug. It is time to seek help if you or someone you know has an addiction problem. Our website has a directory of all the drug rehab facilities in Colorado and you will find what you are looking for.
