Alcohol and Drug Addiction in Albuquerque, New Mexico

The state of New Mexico, and the city of Albuquerque in particular, struggle from high rates of substance abuse. Known for high crime and poverty rates, Albuquerque’s substance abuse rates are theorized to be connected to violence in the city. New Mexico has ranked as high second in the nation for overall drug and alcohol abuse in recent years, and New Mexico’s youth suffer from the highest rates in their age group. New Mexico’s student cocaine, ecstasy, and marijuana use rates are second in the nation, and student methamphetamine use rates ranked fifth.

Popular culture closely associates Albuquerque with substance abuse. Breaking Bad is a popular crime drama set in Albuquerque highlighting a dying man’s transition from a teacher to a drug dealer. The show was popular for its character development and unique storyline with a large fan base, yet audience members view images of crystal meth. Although highly dramatized, the show did reflect realistic scenes of substance abuse in Albuquerque.

Opioid Abuse in Albuquerque

Located close to the Mexican border and major highways, Albuquerque remains a major hub for drug trafficking. Heroin is a highly abused substance in Albuquerque, including by 3.5% of local students. The Albuquerque Fire Department reported 600 opioid-related fatal and non-fatal overdoses in one year.

Local Native American populations are most affected by the opioid crisis. Reports indicate that for every 100,000 local Native Americans, there were 22 deaths by opioids.

Staying Local in Albuquerque for Rehab

The person seeking recovery locally in Albuquerque should first consider their proximity to loved ones, schools, and their community when thinking of staying locally. Here, the patient can access the healing of cutting-edge treatments combined with the comfort of familiar surroundings. Family members and friends can visit their loved one in rehab without having to travel long distance.

People staying in Albuquerque for recovery have different financial flexibility and payment options. Local facilities may be less expensive for prospective patients, where long distance facilities  are often more expensive. Prospective patients cut down on gas, airfare, and other accommodations with less moving stress.

With just 30 days at a rehab center, you can get clean and sober, start therapy, join a support group, and learn ways to manage your cravings.

Traveling from Albuquerque for Rehab

The nature of traveling long distances for rehab allows patients more commitment and focus on sobriety. Patients have fewer distractions, and they are more likely to focus on their treatment process. Individuals can be even more diligent in their healing because they are independent of family and around people they don’t know. Additionally, traveling provides patients with access to unique treatments that may not be available locally.
