Alcohol and Drug Addiction Help in Arizona
Can Arizona Addiction Facilities Deal with All Kinds of Drugs?
Yes. And it’s a good thing because there is no drug that isn’t available or a problem in Arizona.
Centers that offer addiction help in Arizona treat people with methamphetamine addiction, cocaine addiction, marijuana addiction, heroin addiction, and prescription drug addiction.
The amount of marijuana and methamphetamine coming across the border from Mexico makes sure that there is so much of those drugs around, no one has trouble getting them.
Prescription drugs are also a huge problem. People in Arizona get prescription drugs from the Internet, their friends and parents medicine cabinets, and by going from one doctor to another faking symptoms so they can get a prescription.
But those are not the biggest sources of prescription drugs in Arizona. The drugs can also be bought at any Mexican pharmacy over the counter, then smuggled across the border where they’re sold for huge profits.
This easy access to prescription drugs has resulted in prescription drug addiction, abuse and dependency being one of Arizona’s most dangerous problems.

One of the reasons for this is the prescription drug problem.
Why is Prescription Drug Addiction Such a Big Problem?
Many people feel that prescription drugs aren’t as dangerous as street drugs because doctors prescribe them. So, they’re not as careful. Also, not many people understand how much of those drugs they can take without overdosing, or which drugs they shouldn’t mix with them.
OxyContin, hydrocodone, Vicodin, Xanax addiction plus addiction and abuse of many other prescription painkillers, sedatives, tranquilizers and stimulants are rampant in Arizona.
