Ranking eighth in prescription drug overdoses in the country, Arkansas continues to face an ongoing problem with prescription painkiller addiction. Opioid abuse is most prominent in Northwest Arkansas, and mildly affects Central Arkansas and the rest of the state, according to the Arkansas Surgeon General. Opioid addiction is driving overdose rates, along with costs that affect disability, health care, and crime rates across the state.
Other substances with high abuse rates in Arkansas are methamphetamine, cocaine, and heroin. Arkansas is ranked among the top 10 states with the highest meth use and faces high heroin overdose rates on behalf of the opioid crisis. Fortunately, there are drug and alcohol rehab centers located throughout Arkansas that can effectively treat addiction to any of these substances.
Rehabs in Arkansas offer treatments designed to help you or your loved one overcome addiction to nearly any substance, including alcohol, meth, and opioids.
