New Mexico Rehabs
New Mexico did not become a U.S. state until 1912, when it was acquired as part of the Gadsden Purchase. Today, it is home to over 2 million residents with the capital city of Santa Fe. Its proximity to Mexico puts the state and its residents at an increased risk of coming in contact with drugs that are being smuggled in. The amount of illicit drugs that are trafficked into the state greatly outweighs drug consumption in the state. Cocaine, Methamphetamine, Heroin, and Marijuana are all trafficked into New Mexico, with Cocaine and Crack Cocaine posing the most significant risk. A high-risk section of New Mexico includes 16 counties and shares a 180 mile long border with Mexico. As more drugs flow through the state, this makes drugs cheaper and more accessible. An accidental overdose can happen to anyone. There are treatment providers ready to help those struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction. Find rehabs today.
