Rehabs near Albuquerque
Albuquerque is the largest city in New Mexico with a population of over 560,000 people. The city and surrounding area boast a wealth of archeological destinations, primarily carvings dated to over 24,000 years old. The successful TV show Breaking Bad was set in Albuquerque, and it’s unfortunately poignant given the issues with substance use in the area. Time and time again, studies show that New Mexico struggles to control substance use issues and as the largest city, Albuquerque struggles similarly. Rates of drug use amongst teens in Albuquerque are some of the highest in the nation. Surveys found that nearly 25% of teens recently used marijuana, 9% ever used cocaine, 8% used ecstasy, and 5% used methamphetamines. Drug use among adults is also troubling, many people struggling to cut down on opioid and alcohol use. Prescription opioids are particularly problematic in Albuquerque whereas many other cities have transitioned to use of synthetic opioids like fentanyl. Don’t allow drugs to govern and eventually endanger your life. If you or someone you know currently struggles with a substance use disorder please reach out to nearby treatment centers to receive help and information.
