The Impact of Addiction in Mississippi

Alcohol and Drug Treatment Centers in Mississippi

The rich past of Mississippi has been influenced by American Indians, European traders and early settlers. During the American Civil War, Vicksburg was a key battle ground, commemorated with memorials. The beautiful landscapes of the state have inspired a wealth of creative talent, from William Faulkner to Elvis Presley. The art scene continues to flourish, with independent film festivals, honky tonks and Pulitzer’s award-winning authors.

Despite the state of Mississippi ranking amongst the lowest in the nation for deaths due to drug and alcohol abuse, the problem is still prevalent within the community. Approximately 350,000 residents use illicit drugs every year while another 108,000 abuse alcohol. These statistics contribute to 5.04% of all deaths in the state caused by either drugs or alcohol. This number is far below the national average of 12.71%.

Clearly are a lot of things to love about Mississippi, but that doesn’t mean it has no drug or alcohol problems.

On the count of prescriptions, however, Mississippi exhibits a rate higher than the national average. In one year, doctors in the state prescribed 76.8 opioid prescriptions for every 100 persons, compared to the national rate of 51.4 prescriptions. This places Mississippi as one of the top 10 in the country.

The numbers and reports vary with Mississippi ranking relatively low and relatively high on various drug and alcohol abuse statistics. Overall, however, the state–as well as the entire nation–is seeing an alarmingly dangerous increasing trend in drug and alcohol usage.

While all age groups engage in marijuana (grass, weed, or pot) use in the state, the largest group is reported to be those between 21-25 years old.

  4. In 2018, opioids were the cause of 173 deaths–or roughly 60% of the 310 drug overdoses. And according to a TEDS report from 2009, those admitted for treatment and rehabilitation for substance abuse for opiates(other than heroin) totaled 655.
