Colorado Substance Abuse and Mental Health Issues At-A-Glance published by the Substance Abuse and Mental health treatment Administration (SAMHSA) reports that Colorado is among the top 10 states in the United States when it comes to numbers of residents struggling with drug abuse issues.
Colorado ranks in the top 10 for issues like:
- Past-month illicit drug use (for those who are in the 12+ age group and the 26+ age group)
- Past-month use of an illicit drug other than marijuana (Coloradans between 18 and 25)
- Past-year cocaine use (those 12+, 18 to 25, and 26+)
- Past-year nonmedical use of pain relievers (those who are 26+)
Why are there so many issues with illicit substances in Colorado? A landlocked state, it seems intuitive that few substances produced outside of the country would even be found within state lines. However, drug trafficking is thick in the state, and Denver is a hub. Many in Westminster have constant access to drugs like heroin, cocaine and marijuana produced in other parts of the world as a result. Ultimately, access leads to abuse which in turn leads to addiction – and addiction slowly destroys the lives that it doesn’t snuff out through overdose or accident.
