The state of Idaho stretches across the northeastern region of the United States with more than 2.3 million acres of rugged, wilderness areas, snow-capped mountains, steep canyons, rushing rivers, and vast lakes. Its name was derived from the Shoshoni word “Ee-dah-how” which translates to, “Behold the sun coming down the mountain.”
In contrast to the majestic landscape, Idaho also presents a shady underworld of substance abuse and drug-related crime across the state. Once known for widespread meth problems, Idaho is now experiencing an opioid and heroin crisis. Destroyed lives and increased death rates continue to escalate in the ongoing battle with substance abuse in the state. Compared to the national average, the drug-related death rate in Idaho is lower. But, the rate at which the problem has increased is alarming.
SAMHSA believes substance abuse takes the life of an Idaho resident every 45 hours. Due to the unique geography of the state, drug traffickers have forced some counties to be included in the High-Intensity Drug Traffic Area (HIDTA). In this HIDTA area, 107 drug trafficking organizations (DTOs) and seven money laundering organizations were operating during 2015 and 2016.
The following statistics will provide a better perspective on the scope of the drug problems in Idaho:
In the past decade, 96,000 people over the age of 12 admitted alcohol abuse.
More than 5% of residents admitted to illicit drug use or dependence.
Approximately 16% of high school students have used opioids non-medically.
More than 62% of the drugs seized in 2015 were opioids.
In 2012, opioid overdoses claimed the lives of 212 people in Idaho.
Drug-related deaths more than doubled between 1999 and 2013.
More than 40% of fatal automobile accidents in 2015 are attributed to impaired driving.
Heroin seizures jumped 800% from 2014 to 2015.
The number of heroin cases handled increased by 775% between 2014 and 2015.
The ISP reports that meth cases tripled between 2014 and 2015.
More than 42% of treatment admissions were for meth-related issues.
About 70% of drug arrests in 2014 were marijuana-related.
More than 1650 pounds of marijuana were seized in 2015.
Marijuana ranks second-most-cited drug abused by people in addiction treatment centers.
During National Heroin and Opioid Awareness Week, the US Attorney for Idaho, Wendy Olson, had this to say about the crisis:
“Yes, the statistics are frightening. The trend in Idaho is just as alarming. As I meet with law enforcement leaders around the state, I hear what they see: an increase in heroin use, abuse, and availability. Prescription painkillers are simply synthetic heroin: once a person is addicted to painkillers, transitioning to the use of heroin is easy.”
As with every state in the nation, Idaho is experiencing an increasing problem with substance abuse.
Efforts to provide more effective and affordable treatment are underway. Additional efforts to improve and expand awareness and education programs are ongoing. Some of the organizations and agencies involved in these initiatives include, but are not limited to:
