Mississippi Drug Information

Cocaine, primarily crack, is the primary drug threat in Mississippi due to the availability of the drug and its high addiction rate. Cocaine abuse is reported in Mississippi’s metropolitan cities as well as its rural areas. The abuse and distribution of cocaine is associated with more incidents of violent crime than any other drug within the state.  Part of the problem with cocaine abuse in Mississippi is the fact of the drug being so addictive.  Some Mississippi cocaine addicts entering rehab have reported getting hooked to crack after only one hit.  Until they go to an effective Mississippi drug abuse rehab, they will continue to be dependent upon coke.

Heroin is considered a minimal drug threat in Mississippi due to the low demand and high cost of the drug.

Methamphetamine is the second most serious drug threat in Mississippi due to its increasing availability, low cost, rapid growth of abuse and its threat to human life and the environment.  Mississippi legislators have taken action to try to limit the supply of meth in the state through legislation requiring pharmacies to track pseudoephedrine purchases in a multi-state database.  Methamphetamine labs are somewhat prevalent in rural Mississippi areas.  Meth addiction is one of the most dangerous forms of addiction for Mississippi residents.

Marijuana continues to be the most commonly used drug in Mississippi. Reports indicate it is the gateway drug for teens and young adults who are beginning to experiment with drugs. After the teen develops a tolerance to marijuana, he will go to Mississippi drug dealers for harder drugs in order to get the same high as before.  For this reason, Mississippi drug rehabs warn parents and teens that marijuana can be highly dangerous.  It is proven to lead to harder drug abuse.

Club drugs are available usually in small quantities throughout Mississippi, especially around university towns. Furthermore, MDMA has become the most prevalent and popular of the club drugs in Mississippi.

Law enforcement officials report the continued abuse of OxyContin in Mississippi.

According to data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), approximately 177,000 of Mississippi citizens over the age of 12 reported past month use of an illicit drug.

Additional survey results indicate that 72,000 Mississippi citizens reported illicit drug dependence or abuse within the past year. Approximately 47,000 reported past year illicit drug dependence.

There were 7,368 admissions to drug/alcohol treatment in Mississippi in 2006. During 2005, there were 8,587 admissions to drug/alcohol treatment in Mississippi. There were 10,079 treatment admissions during 2004.

However, approximately 66,000 Mississippi citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment for illicit drug use within the past year.

In 2011, the DEA partnered with six different Mississippi government agencies in order to carry out a state-wide prescription drug pick-up day.  The purpose of this action was to curb prescription drug abuse in Mississippi by cutting down on the supply.  Hopefully this will result in less people getting hooked on painkillers and other prescription medications and make is so less people end up having to do a Mississippi drug abuse rehab program.
