Marijuana Addiction in Colorado

The most frequent drug of abuse is marijuana, which is readily available in large quantities. Highly potent stands of marijuana are widely available. The technical legal status of marijuana provides protection against prosecution, but not protection against substance abuse. Marijuana addiction alone accounts for almost 6,000 admissions into Colorado drug rehabs each year.

Meth Addiction in Colorado

Methamphetamine is also commonly abused. After marijuana, meth addiction is the most frequently cited reason for seeking admission into a Colorado drug rehab. Like many Midwestern states, Colorado is a prime location for the manufacture and trafficking of crystal methamphetamine, which is becoming increasingly available.

Opiate Addiction in Colorado

Hydrocodone (Vicodin, Lortab) and Darvocet are the most commonly abused controlled substances in CO. The diversion and abuse of such substances, which also includes OxyContin, is a significant problem. It is believed to be a gateway to heroin addiction, which is on the rise in CO. New heroin users in often smoke or snort the drug rather than inject it, mistakenly believing that this is safer. However, the truth remains: heroin, no matter how it is used, is addictive and deadly.
