    Drug Abuse Trends in Tulsa, OK

    Tulsa is the second-largest city in Oklahoma and home to 403,505 residents, with another 1.1 million people in the greater-metropolitan area. Throughout most of the 20th century, the city was known as the “Oil Capital of the World.” The presences of the nearby capital, Oklahoma City, in addition to major roadways crisscrossing the state, contribute to much of Tulsa’s struggle with illicit substance abuse and crime.

    While other states suffer from the effects of the Opioid Epidemic (including heroin addiction and abuse), Tulsa residents are more likely to abuse meth than most opioids. In fact, meth-related fatalities increased by more than 265% between 2010 and 2016.

    Previously, meth production in the rural state was high. Then, crackdowns on the sale of pseudoephedrine (i.e. cold medicine like Sudafed) greatly reduced the number of clandestine drug labs. However, Mexican cartels have replaced the supply with purer “Mexican ice.” The presence of meth has been linked to increased crime and violent behavior.

    Alcohol Abuse and Drunk Driving in Tulsa

    Though the effects of meth abuse draw more media attention, the primary substance of abuse in Tulsa is alcohol. While the number of alcohol-related deaths has fallen in other parts of the country, Oklahoma still experiences high rates of drunk driving, alcohol poisoning, and death in comparison. By 2016, Oklahoma ranked dead last in improvement to impaired driving deaths. Moreover, Oklahoma ranks third in underage drinking; 17% of all alcohol in the state is consumed by residents under 21.

    It is a sad fact that as a state, we have far too many impaired driving crashes. Over the last five years, alcohol-impaired driving fatalities account for 28 percent of total fatal crashes. On average, 194 Oklahomans have been killed each year, for the last five years. That’s 16 Oklahomans every month.

    Addiction Treatment in Tulsa

    Oklahomans are receiving treatment for a number of addictions and co-occurring disorders. In 2016, about 720 people were treated for meth addiction; 2,170 were treated for prescription opioid addictions. 30% of treatment admissions listed alcohol as their primary addiction.

    Subsequently, Oklahoma has increased its efforts in the prevention and treatment of substance abuse, before its negative consequences can impact society. Courts Raising Awareness of Students in High School (CRASH), funded in part by the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health & Substance Abuse Services and participant fees, educates students about the dangers of drunk driving. Drug Courts and Veterans’ Treatment Courts also provide residents with addiction treatment services and alternatives to jailtime. These programs have been proven to reduce rates of recidivism and alcohol-related crimes.

    Traveling from Tulsa for Rehab

    To escape local, everyday stressors, some may choose to travel for drug or alcohol rehab. Detoxing in a safe space, removed from substance abuse triggers, can increase a person’s likelihood for finishing recovery programs. Traveling for rehab allows an individual to focus on healing and rehabilitating themselves. Additionally, traveling out-of-state increases your options for rehab facilities and amenities.
