New Mexico is faced with a similar problem to other states that are primarily rural in that there are only a small concentration of programs in the larger cities and very little in other parts of the state. For example, most of the drug treatment facilities here are near Albuquerque and Santa Fe.
The above is especially true when it comes to locating an inpatient drug rehab. There are considerably more outpatient programs, as there are in the rest of the states.
Overall, border siezures of drugs coming from Mexico appear to have decreased in recent years for drugs such as cocaine, marijuana and methamphetamine. Despite seeing a surge in meth lately, it has remained at a relatively low level. This seems to indicate the drugs are either not being found, entering the country via other routes, or domestic production has increased. All three may be true.
New Mexico does have a slightly higher rate of drug use compared to other parts of the country, thought not significanly so. As with most of America, the state is battling and increase in prescription drug addiction and continuing to try and integrate combined methods of treatment, prevention and interdiction.
