The Impact of Addiction in Iowa

Find Drug, Substance, and Alcohol Treatment in Iowa

Iowa is a typical Midwest mixture of cornfields and picturesque meadows. The state has over 2,900 kilometers of cycling paths through natural forests and wetlands. Iowa City is the only UNESCO literature city in North America and a main stop to the emerging authors. It winds down the eastern border and winds along its coastline on the Great River Path.

While the rate of illicit drug abuse has been increasing in the United States for the past decade, Iowa’s trends show a decrease. Although the state ranks 2nd lowest in the nation for illicit drug use, 12% of its residents are still using these drugs every single year.

Obviously there are a lot of things to love about Iowa, but that does not mean it is drug and alcohol free.

Iowa ranks low for different types of drug abuse, yet there are several illegal drug activities taking place. Even though the amount of methamphetamine laboratories closed down by Iowa officials drops every year, there seems to be more popping up than ever before. Some of this locally produced meth is sold within the state borders of Iowa, but much of it is distributed further to neighboring states.

Other drugs, mostly produced in Mexico, can easily enter the state due to the three major interstates running through Iowa. This makes the state a strategic hub for drug trafficking.

Worst Drugs in Iowa

  1. Methamphetamines pose a large threat in Iowa. Due to the local production, they are readily available at relatively low prices. These drugs also account for more than 90% of all drug-related prison admissions.
  2. Alcohol is the most widely abused substance in the state. More than 23% of residents admit to heavy drinking, surpassing the national average by more than 15%. This has led to almost half of all those admitted into substance abuse treatment programs listing alcohol as their substance of choice.
  3. Marijuana is the most common illicit drug in Iowa. Almost 25% of those who enter into rehabilitation programs for marijuana abuse in Iowa are between the ages of 12 and 17 years.
  4. The rate of opioid-related overdoses in Iowa is 6.9 deaths per 100,000, compared to the national average of 14.6. Just 2.5% of all substance abuse treatment admissions are due to opioids. While this seems low, it is thrice the number compared to previous years.
  5. Even though cocaine abuse is still a problem in Iowa, cocaine abuse treatment admissions are the lowest of all drugs at 1.5%. Luckily, this has led to cocaine-related prison admissions reaching an all-time low of 7%.
