The Impact of Addiction in New Mexico

New Mexico Drug Addiction Treatment Centers

New Mexico is known as the “land of magic” for its stunning topography and fascinating history. Pueblo and Navajo Indigenous American cultures are very much alive and well. The national parks include the Carlsbad Caverns, the White Sands and the Shiprock Mountains in Navajo. Roswell, the home of the UFO crash site, is a popular tourist attraction.

For years, New Mexico has been one of the leading states in the nation when it comes to drug and alcohol use, abuse, and addiction. Although there has been a small decline in overdoses in recent years, this number is still significantly higher than the national average. These addiction-led overdoses are due both to prescribed as well as illicit drug use.

New Mexico has a lot to enjoy but in New Mexico there are many areas within dealing with drug and alcohol abuse.

Due to New Mexico being one of the leading drug-trafficking states, it is exceptionally easy for those underage to get their hands on drugs and alcohol. This has led to New Mexico having one of the highest percentages of drug and alcohol-addicted teenagers in the entire country.

Most recently, the state has legalized the use of medical marijuana. New Mexico also executes the Good Samaritan Law, which legally protects people who call in overdoses as well as those that overdose. By doing so, the state hopes to encourage people to seek help with some degree of anonymity.
