Arkansas and the Drug Problem in the State

The state of Arkansas, located in the southeast United States, is home to over 3 million people. Of those, about 1,067 died as a result of a drug overdose between 2013 and 2015.

Arkansas is one of the poorest states in the U.S.  For that reason, the number of quality drug rehab programs is low. Many people turn to out-of-state treatment centers to get the help they need.  Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson had this to say about the situation:

"Arkansas ranks eighth in the nation in percent of overdoses on prescription drugs, so it is a challenge that we face."

In 2011, Arkansas authorized the Prescription Drug Monitoring program (PMP). The goal of this program is to curtail doctor-shopping and reduce deaths. The Governor encourages all opioid prescribers and providers to provide detailed records on the controlled drugs they prescribe or sell. Today, many insurance carriers require that their providers register for this program.

Arkansas ranks in the top 20% of states that prescribe the most painkillers per capita. The state’s opioid prescription rate (114.6 per 100 people) ranks second only to Alabama (121.0 per 100 people). Ironically, Arkansas has the lowest prescription drug abuse rates in the country.  However, many other drugs are causing problems statewide.

Statistics on the drug-related issues in Arkansas reveal a grim situation:

  • Meth:  Arkansas ranks high in the national average for meth abuse.  But, it boasts high arrest rates for meth-related crime. Three-fourths of all property crime arrests are for meth issues.
  • Alcohol:  About 42,000 people 12 to 20-years-of-age reported binge alcohol use in the past month. More than 128,000 people (5.2% of people surveyed) admitted to alcohol abuse or dependency in the past year.
  • Heroin: In a two year period, there were 27 heroin-related deaths in Arkansas.
  • Cocaine: 8% of high school students admitted using cocaine one or more times in their lifetime.  Among 18 to 25 year olds, 2.89% admitted to cocaine use in the past year.
  • Opiates:  About 3.6 per 100,000 people in Arkansas died from opiate poisoning or overdoses in 2014.  Illicit opioid overdose deaths increased by 22.7% last year.
  • Marijuana:  4.7% of people surveyed had initiated marijuana use in the previous year.  About 35% of high school students admitted marijuana use in the past year.

In 2016, more than 235.9 million prescription pills were sold in Arkansas, according to the CDC.

The Arkansas Department of Health Director, Nathaniel D. Smith, spoke about the drug epidemic in the state:

“The Arkansas Department of Health is committed to identifying high-burdened areas, identifying high prescribers of opioids for educational opportunities, and identifying and eliminating doctor shopping,”

Advocates for drug prevention and education strive daily to make a difference. They have established many organizations and initiatives in Arkansas.  Their goal is to help citizens live drug-free, productive lives.  Some of these organizations include, but are not limited to:
