Drug And Alcohol Addiction In Texarkana, Texas

In northeastern Texas on the border of Arkansas, sits the bi-state metropolitan city, Texarkana. Texarkana’s name is a combination of Texas, Arkansas, and Louisiana, and the metro area is home to approximately 150,098 residents–37,679 of which live on the Texas side of the city. Between 1999 and 2018, reports show that excessive drug and alcohol use caused over 14% of all deaths in the county, and about one quarter of all traffic fatalities were linked to drunk driving from 2014 through 2018. Until 2014, the sale of alcohol was illegal in Texarkana, meaning residents had to drive out of county to purchase it. However, alcohol-related crime such as assault has remained high, making up a large percentage of violent crime in Texarkana. Likewise, rates of Meth abuse (commonly linked to increases in violent behavior and erratic decision-making) have affected violent crime and drug trafficking in the area as well.

Once rated the fourth-most dangerous city in Texas, improvements in addiction treatment and the availability of it have turned crime rates around in the small metro. There are multiple treatment facilities near the area including faith-based treatment centers, women-only facilities, and outpatient facilities. The Texas Department of Health and Human Services also provides substance use services to all Texans aged 18 and older (with some youth programs are available). For those struggling with a substance use disorder (SUD), there are treatment options available near Texarkana, Texas. If the services provided in the area are not the best fit for you or a loved one, there are also treatment options in nearby cities.

The Opioid Crisis In Texarkana

Though cities farther north and east of Texarkana have suffered higher Opioid addiction rates, prescription Opioid abuse is still high in the region. In Texarkana, 45.1% of prescription Opioids are abused. Texarkana also ranks 10th among cities with the highest percentages of Opioid addiction sufferers; 8.5% of Texarkana’s population misuses prescription Opioids or abuses illicit ones like Heroin. Subsequently, Texarkana prosecutors have filed suits against pharmaceutical companies for misleading doctors and patients concerning the addictiveness of their products.

For many who have had to deal with pain following an injury or operation, a single Opioid prescription was enough to become addicted. There is a 6% chance of developing a dependence to Opioids from a single day prescription–women may be at an even greater risk. When maintaining a supply of prescription Opioids becomes too hard or expensive some turn to Heroin use, where chances of a fatal overdose are much more likely.
