Drug Abuse in Dallas
Substance abuse has been a growing problem in Dallas for many years, prompting the rise of numerous prevention organizations in the city. In the mid-2000s, an epidemic of “cheese heroin” led to the deaths of more than 25 adolescents and young adults 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.
“Imagine a 9-year-old heroin junkie. In Dallas, health officials are seeing children that young being brought to hospitals with signs of heroin withdrawal. The city is in its third year of what drug abuse experts call a ‘mini-epidemic’ among young Hispanics snorting a mild but addictive heroin called ‘cheese’…Sniffing heroin is not particularly new, but addiction experts say this outbreak in Dallas is unprecedented. Typically, people who inhale heroin are older and they’re white. In Dallas, however, users are mostly Latino, and they’re young.”
As of June 2014, heroin continued to be a concern in Dallas (and statewide) as use of the drug began increasing 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:
