The Impact of Addiction in Wyoming

Wyoming Drug Rehab and Inpatient Alcohol Rehabs

Wyoming is home to the smallest population in any US state. National parks like Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks provide stunning scenery. The state is also renowned for its rodeo tradition, with bull riding and cowboy cuisine. Fossil Butte has the world’s largest repository of freshwater fish fossils in the southwest. Go to Cheyenne Frontier Days in July for more cowboy action.

Despite Wyoming ranking a low 31st in the nation for overall substance abuse, drug and alcohol remain problematic throughout the state. Both drugs and alcohol are widely used and abused by both adults as well as minors in the state.

Obviously a great place to visit and live, but Wyoming, like all other states, has problems with drug and substance abuse.

Substance use has become normalized in Wyoming–leading many young residents to begin using drugs and drinking alcohol at a fairly young age. This is part of the reason why Wyoming ranks amongst the top in the nation for different substance use categories, such as first for drinking and driving-related deaths in the United States. More than 2.2% of people in Wyoming admit to driving after drinking, which is higher than the national average of 1.9%. In 2007, over 40% of all road fatalities throughout the state were alcohol-related.

Not only does the Equality State rank first for alcohol-related vehicle deaths, but Wyoming also has some of the highest rates of alcohol abuse and/or dependency in the nation. From 2006 to 2008, the state ranked first for past-year alcohol abuse. More than 13% of the population, including many minors, regularly abused alcohol. Wyoming also ranked highest for drug and alcohol dependence at 15%. While the state no longer ranks first in the nation, the rates continue to be high.

Part of the reason why Wyoming experiences such a high number is because many residents do not get the help they need. Drug and alcohol rehabilitation and treatment are so low that the state ranks 48th in the nation for admittance.

Worst Drugs in Wyoming

  1. Almost 10% of all Wyoming residents suffer from alcohol dependence, which quickly turns into alcohol addiction. This has led to more than 200 residents dying from excessive alcohol drinking in Wyoming every year.
  2. Methamphetamines are the largest drug threat in Wyoming. Almost 80% of all drug-related federal sentences in the state were somehow related to methamphetamines. Since 2010, meth-related arrests have risen each year–and they have even doubled between 2013 and 2016.
  3. While marijuana use remains illegal in Wyoming, both for medical and recreational use, it is the second-largest drug threat in the state. It is also the drug most often seized by law enforcement in Wyoming. Most of the marijuana available in the state comes from Mexico, Washington, and Colorado.
  4. While opioid-related overdoses in Wyoming have been decreasing since 2014, opioid abuse remains a common problem in the state. One of the reasons that opioid-related overdoses never spiked in Wyoming is the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program which was enacted by the Wyoming Legislature in 2003. This program allows prescribers to track their patient’s use and prescription.
  5. Wyoming high schoolers use cocaine at a higher rate than the average high schooler in the United States. Slightly over 7% of all Wyoming high schoolers admit to using cocaine compared to the national average of 5%.
