Common Substances of Abuse in Utah
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, in 2006, the substances of abuse that were most commonly cited as a drug of choice among patients in Utah were:
· Alcohol: More than 50 percent
· Methamphetamine: Almost 40 percent
· Marijuana: A little more than 35 percent
· Cocaine: A little more than 20 percent
· Heroin: About 15 percent
Many patients listed more than one drug of abuse when they began treatment, as is common in Utah and across the country. In fact, it is becoming increasingly more common every year. Seeking treatment solely for alcoholism or drug addiction used to be the norm but as access to a wider variety of substances expands, more and more patients are developing dependences upon multiples drugs – sometimes but not always including alcohol – at the same time.
