Is Addiction Help Really Needed in Oklahoma?

Yes. Many people think that it would be different in Oklahoma than other states that aren’t quite so peaceful. But, unfortunately, that is not the case.

In fact, Oklahoma has some very serious problems.

  • Oklahoma ranked first among all states for past year non-medical use of pain relievers
  • The number of people currently using illicit drugs is higher than the national average.
  • The number of deaths that were caused by drugs also exceeds national average by 50% – nearly as many deaths as from motor vehicle accidents.
  • The number of methamphetamine lab seizures, which had decreased for a few years after the law was passed to not allow pseudoephedrine (the basic ‘active ingredient’ in methamphetamine) to be sold over the counter, has been climbing back up for the last few years.

It’s important to make sure that anyone messing around with drugs gets addiction help in Oklahoma as soon as possible – with all the drugs around, the situation is bound to get worse before it gets better.

What Drugs Are the Real Problems Requiring Addiction Help in Oklahoma?

In most states, the number of people going into a drug addiction treatment program for marijuana vastly outnumbers those getting help for other drugs.

But that’s not the case in Oklahoma. Addiction help facilities see about 3,700 people a year for marijuana, but they see even more than that for stimulants – a whopping 4,200 people!

Stimulants include cocaine, methamphetamine, some party drugs like MDMA (known as Ecstasy), prescription amphetamines and methylphenidates like Adderall, Concerta and Ritalin., Ritalin and so on.

Addiction help is also sought for opiates like prescription painkillers such as OxyContin, hydrocodone, Vicodin and so on. As mentioned earlier, Oklahoma is number one in the list of states for using prescription painkillers for non-medical reasons so you can count on a lot of people looking for help with OxyContin addiction.

Don’t count on someone who’s on drugs getting off them just because they say they’re going to. It’s not that they’re lying, they just can’t do it.

Alcohol Abuse and Alcohol Addiction Treatment Programs in Oklahoma

The laws related to drunk driving in Oklahoma have been pretty easy to get around.  The father of one girl who was killed by a drunk driver (the driver was also killed) said the laws are a little more than a slap on the wrist.

Apparently, he’s not the only one who thinks so. As of November 1, 2011, anyone who has been caught drinking and driving will have to have a breathalyzer type of device in their car. If their blood alcohol level shows too high, their car won’t start.

That law is currently in place for those who have two DUIs, but now you just need one.

It’s easy to think of people who abuse alcohol as simply careless and unethical. Especially when they say they’re going to quit and they don’t.

But the truth is that most people who say they want to quit drinking actually do. But alcohol is so very addictive, and it can be so painful to stop drinking (as well as medically dangerous), that it’s almost impossible to quit on your own.
