The Nevada Drug Rehab state page provides the reader with a quick overview of issues relating to drug and alcohol addiction and NV 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 9,909 people who were admitted to drug and alcohol rehabs in Nevada. Of this population, 66% were male and 34% were female.
Approximately 9% of Nevada residents reported past-month use of illicit drugs; the national average was 8%. Stimulants, including methamphetamine, are the most commonly cited drugs among primary drug treatment admissions in Nevada.
In 2007-2008, Nevada was one of the top ten states for rates in several drug-use categories, including: past-month illicit drug use among persons age 12 and older; past-year non-medical use of pain relievers among persons age 12 and older; and past-year non-medical use of pain relievers among young adults age 18-25. Dependence on alcohol or drugs over time has been variable across survey years but the figures have generally remained at or slightly above rates for the country as a whole.
According to the annual National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services (N-SSATS), the number of drug and alcohol treatment facilities in Nevada has remained relatively stable from 2002 until 2006 with 77 treatment facilities. 15 facilities offered some form of residential care, and nine facilities offered opioid treatment.
While the number of alcohol admissions only decreased over the years, 2,602 people went to treatment for alcohol abuse in 2010. There was an additional 1,520 people who were admitted to treatment for alcohol combined with a secondary drug.
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, 515 persons died in Nevada in 2007. This is compared to the number of persons in Nevada who died from motor vehicle accidents (407) and firearms (414) in the same year. Nevada drug-induced deaths (20.1 per 100,000 population) exceeded the national rate (12.7 per 100,000). The rate of drug-induced deaths in Nevada is higher than the national average.
Methamphetamine is identified as the biggest threat to Nevada. During November 2010, the Clark County Gang Task force seized 17 pounds of methamphetamine that was to be distributed in Clark County. The Northern Nevada Interdiction Task Force made a 19-pound methamphetamine interdiction on the highway going into Reno, Nevada.
