Alcohol is the number one substance abused in Texas; yet, only seven percent of these individuals receive addiction treatment. Though Texas alcohol abuse rates are on par with the national average, the Lone Star State has the second highest population in the U.S., which makes alcohol addiction a major problem for its residents.
Texas also suffers high rates of methamphetamine and heroin addiction. High amounts of meth are routinely trafficked into Texas from Mexico, while heroin use remains on the rise due to the nation’s painkiller epidemic. Individuals who can no longer obtain painkillers from doctors and other sources head to the streets to fuel their opioid addiction using low-cost heroin.
Texas detox centers are located all throughout the state to help its residents overcome addiction to nearly any substance, including alcohol, meth, and heroin. Use Addictions.com to explore your options for local detox centers and detox treatments available throughout the Lone Star State.
