If you are suffering from addiction and/or alcoholism in Colorado, Recovery Hub can help you find the right drug rehab today! CO has 150% the national rate of substance use and abuse, and this statistic has consequences. Its rate of drug-induced deaths is also higher than most of the country. In fact, drugs kill more people here than both firearms and car crashes!
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.
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.
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.
