If you are suffering from addiction and/or alcoholism in Wyoming, Recovery Hub can help you find the right drug rehab today! Many states struggle with drugs and alcohol for different reasons, and Wyoming certainly has its reasons. Its location provides a market for Mexican drug cartels, the crime and the drugs that they bring. The rural landscape also subjects WY to meth production and trafficking, like many other states in the Midwest.
The main drug problem in Wyoming is marijuana addiction. Of the estimated 39,000 drug users here, marijuana accounts for about 57%. It also makes up almost half of WY’s primary admissions into drug rehabs. Stimulants, primarily meth amphetamine (a.k.a. “meth”, “crank”, “crystal”) are the second most abused drug. They are followed by “other opiates” (i.e. prescription painkiller addiction), cocaine, and heroin.
Marijuana poses a particular danger to Wyoming drug users, especially teens and young adults. The state has the highest rate of major depressive episodes among adolescents (ages 12 – 17). Depression and other psychological conditions make drug users more likely to use marijuana for self-medication, rather than recreational use or partying. This not only makes depression worse, but it also leads down the path of substance abuse and addiction.
