New Mexico Rehabs
New Mexico is the 5th largest state by area in the United States, just north of the country of Mexico. For decades, excessive drinking has been a major issue in New Mexico. Since 1981, New Mexico’s total alcohol-related death rate has been one of the worst in the entire country. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that excessive drinking results in 1,042 deaths every year in New Mexico. Excessive alcohol use also costs New Mexico $1.8 billion annually. While death rates from alcohol have decreased throughout America from 1990 to 2012, those rates have increased in the state of New Mexico. Deaths due to excessive drinking are almost always preventable. Binge drinking puts users at an elevated risk for both short- and long-term health risks. Thankfully, there are drug and alcohol treatment centers in New Mexico that can help individuals overcome an addiction and build a support system that will support their sobriety.
