Should I Travel Outside Houston for Treatment?

Houston is a large city that can be full of distractions from treatment and temptations to use. Oftentimes, residents of large cities choose to travel for rehab so they can focus entirely on getting sober. There are many renowned drug and alcohol rehabs in Texas, as well as treatment centers outside of the state.

Rising Rates of Drug Abuse

Houston is the most populous city in Texas. With so many people coming in and out, it’s no surprise that a fair amount of drugs make their way through the city. The city’s close proximity to the border also makes the city a focal point for drug traffickers coming from Mexico.

The Houston metro area is an identified international drug trafficking hub.

- The Council on Recovery, 2015 Regional Needs Assessment

Gangs and Mexican drug cartels are usually responsible for trafficking illicit drugs to the central city; the most common are marijuana, cocaine and meth. Although the rates of marijuana and cocaine trafficked into the city has decreased, meth has become a major threat in the area. Authorities seized more than quadruple the amount of meth making its way into Houston in 2015 as they did in the previous year. Many states and cities are experiencing the same uptick in meth traffic and meth dependence as Houston. The national focus on combatting the opioid epidemic has taken some pressure off of meth dealers and people looking to buy meth.
