Drug And Alcohol Addiction In El Paso, Texas

El Paso, Texas, is a 248 square-mile city located on the Rio Grande river across from Ciudad Juarez, the most populated city in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. The city itself is home to 683,577 residents, and there are over 2.7 million people in the El Paso-Juarez-Las Cruces metro area. Spanish for “The Pass,” El Paso is considered both a High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Area and transshipment hub for illicit substances – primarily Methamphetamine and Heroin. Accordingly, there was a 103% increase in Meth seizures at the Texas-Mexico border between 2014 and 2016. However, as gruesome as the Mexican drug cartel violence remains across the border, El Paso has consistently ranked as one of the safest cities in America.

While there are limited treatment facilities in the immediate area, there are many in surrounding regions that specialize in various forms of addiction and abuse rehab and recovery services.

Primary Substances Used In El Paso

“Virtually all controlled substances are readily available” in the area. Opioid abuse and death in El Paso have yet to match national levels; 54 overdose deaths were opioid-related in 2016. Heroin abuse rates have risen during what is commonly known as the “Third Wave” of the Opioid Epidemic, yet Methamphetamine abuse is much more common in the rural, mountainous area. Today, clandestine meth made in labs has been replaced by imported, purer forms of drug, including the smokable Mexican “Ice” or “Glass.” Additionally, alcohol and Marijuana are common substances of abuse.

Traveling For Rehab

While considering the cost of rehab, it’s important to consider an individual’s surroundings and comfortability when selecting addiction treatment. To remove themselves from local triggers, some may choose to travel outside of El Paso for drug rehab. Detox and inpatient rehab at an out-of-area facility can help an individual focus on their recovery without worrying about hometown stressors. Also, there may be more options for therapy types and amenities.

If you’re ready to talk about your recovery and rehab options, contact a treatment provider today.
