In 2009, the Treatment Episode Data Set indicated that 48,628 people entered drug and alcohol rehabs in Missouri. Of that number, 68.5 % were male and 31.5% were female.
There were 257 addiction treatment facilities in 2006. That number has remained consistent since 2002. 67 alcohol and drug rehabs were able to offer residential care but only 10 facilities offered opioid treatment.
Rates for alcohol abuse or dependence in 2006 remained above average for all age groups in Missouri while rates for drug dependence have been below the national average for the same time. 18-25 year olds were among the group most suffering from unmet treatment needs for alcohol dependency in 2006 and it ranked among the highest in the country for this demographic.
For drug dependency and unmet treatment needs, the figures varied greatly from year to year. Coinciding with the unmet treatment needs of those in Missouri is the rising number of those suffering from serious psychological distress. Psychological distress and substance abuse are more and more commonly connected.

In some states, the number of meth lab seizures has been significantly reduced. Unfortunately, in Missouri the number of meth lab seizures has risen between 2007 and 2009 from 1,261 to 1,732 incidents.
There were 16 law enforcement task forces in 2007 to work in the areas of Missouri with the biggest threat of drug trafficking, sales, and use. The number of drug induced deaths in 2007 remained consistent with the national figure. There were 730 drug deaths related to drug use compared with 1,054 deaths from motor vehicle accidents and 759 deaths from firearm incidents in the same year.
According to a news report on 9/01/11, the Madison County State Attorney stated that heroin related crimes had increased between 30-40%, with heroin deaths twice the number of that in 2010. In 2005, there were 630 drug related arrests.
