Substance abuse has been a growing problem in Dallas for many years, prompting the rise of numerous prevention organizations in the city.

Cheese Heroin is Mexican Black Tar Heroin mixed with crushed over-the-counter sleep medications, like Tylenol PM. The combined powders are then snorted, resulting in a short-lived high that is quickly followed by withdrawal.

Heroin has been a concern in Dallas (and statewide); use of the drug has increased among youth and young adults. In the same year, Marijuana, Cocaine, and Methamphetamine were some of the most highly available illicit drugs in Dallas. Some other commonly abused drugs in Dallas include:
