Drug And Alcohol Addiction In San Antonio, Texas

San Antonio, Texas, is a city of rich Mexican-American culture and history. The seventh most populous city in the US (and the second-most in Texas), San Antonio forms part of a mega-region known as the “Texas Triangle” with Houston and DallasFort Worth.

Unfortunately, the city’s proximity to the US-Mexico border and location along the US highway system make it popular among a number of gangs and drug cartels. 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.

Drug Use In San Antonio

Criminal activity cannot solely be blamed for the increase in prescription Opioid addiction among Texans. San Antonio, and surrounding Bexar County, suffers from some of the highest rates of Opioid overdose in the state. Codeine, Hydrocodone, Oxycodone, and Buprenorphine are commonly abused prescriptions.

Following the rise of Opioid abuse, Heroin addictions have become a major problem. The principal types of Heroin in the city are Mexican “black tar” and powdered brown (i.e. black tar Heroin turned to powder using Benadryl or other substances).

In Bexar County, the average age of the first time an individual tried varying substances is 13.42 according to data from 2019. Inhalants (like aerosol cans or similarly gaseous substances) and Steroids account for the two lowest average ages of 11.7 and 12.5 respectively; similarly, young people are trying alcohol for the first time right around age 13.  To combat these issues, the county has organizations and programs that promote prevention and aid in developing sustainable coping mechanisms to deal with peer and societal pressure.
