The Maine Drug Rehab state page provides the reader with a quick overview of issues relating to drug and alcohol addiction and ME drug rehab centers.
It should be noted that these pages are not intended as an academic reference. The data collected is from State and Federal sources.
In 2009, there were 14,605 people admitted to drug and alcohol rehab for substance abuse in Maine facilities. Rates of alcohol abuse and dependence in Maine have been variable over time but have generally remained close to the national rates for the population age of 12 and older.
In 2007-2008, Maine was one of the top ten states for rates in several drug-use categories
In 2007-2008, Maine was one of the top ten states for rates in several drug-use categories, including: past-month illicit drug use among young adults age 18-25; past-month marijuana use among persons age 12 and older; and past-year cocaine use among young adults age 18-25.
In the most recent survey, (2007-2008) 9.09% of Maine residents reported using illicit drugs in the past month, while the national average was 8.02%. Additionally, 2.98% of Maine residents reported using an illicit drug other than marijuana in the past month (the national average was 3.58%).
In 2009, there were 4,207 people who went to rehab for alcohol as the primary drug and 2,545 people admitted for alcohol addiction combined with a secondary substance.
Drug abuse is a national epidemic and the numbers are continuing to rise. Heroin is becoming the cheaper replacement for opiates as states continue to crack down on the “pill mills” making the cost of opiates too expensive.
As a direct consequence of drug use, 161 persons died in Maine in 2007. This is compared to the number of persons in Maine who died from motor vehicle accidents (198) and firearms (107) in the same year. Maine drug-induced deaths (12.2 per 100,000 population) were similar to the national rate (12.7 per 100,000).
