Mississippi Treatment and Statistics

Mississippi is one of our deep-southern states, bordered by the Gulf of Mexico to the south. It is home to many famous musicians and writers and is known for having the longest man-made beach in the world. Historical attractions abound in Mississippi, as well as many other attractions that bring tourists to the state every year.  Known as the Magnolia State, Mississippi is proud of its southern heritage that also earned it the nickname of the Hospitality State.  But, despite its reputation as a friendly state, Mississippi also has an unfriendly side that comes from drug-related activity and crime.  

In 2016, there were 211 drug overdose deaths in the state.  The Director of the State Bureau of Narcotics, John Dowdy, said, it is “emerging on the brink of a super pandemic.”  Today, Mississippi ranks in fifth place among the states where there are more opioid prescriptions than there are people.  In fact, a report shows that there were 120 prescription painkillers per 100 people or enough for every person in the state to have at least one bottle.  

To understand the extent of the drug problems in Mississippi, take a look at these statistics:

 

  • The number of people treated for heroin abuse or addiction more than tripled in three years.
  • In 2016, 306 people were treated for heroin-related problems.
  • Deaths from heroin-related causes rose to 35 in 2015, a sharp increase from one death in 2011.
  • About 13.8% of adults surveyed admitted to alcohol abuse in the past 30 days.
  • More than 21% of high school kids had their first drink of alcohol before age 13.
  • Opioid overdoses claimed the lives of 222 people last year.
  • More than 620 meth labs were busted in Mississippi last year.
  • More than 1,400 treatment admissions involved marijuana-related problems.
  • According to NSDUH, more than 6.95% of residents reported illicit drug use in the past 30 days.

 

To help Mississippi bring down these numbers, SAMHSA awarded the state $3.58 million to expand education and prevention campaigns.  One such campaign, the “Stand Up, Mississippi” initiative, will receive 15% of this grant ($537,705) for education and prevention.  About $2.87 million of the grant will be spent on treatment services.  

Another program being utilized in Mississippi to help prevent addiction is known as the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP).  This is an electronic tracking system that will help identify potential abusers of controlled substances.  Physicians and pharmacists are encouraged to participate in the program to help combat “doctor-shopping.”  As of January 2018, all pharmacists in the state are now required to be registered in this program or face fines or penalties. The PDMP is a nationwide effort to help reduce the number of overdose deaths.

In addition to the above programs, awareness and prevention programs are active across the state to help save lives.  Here is a partial list of organizations that are making a difference in Mississippi:

 

Of course, despite all efforts, many people still abuse substances and become addicted.  The best option for these individuals is a professional drug rehab program.  If you are having problems with drugs or alcohol, call our toll-free number now.  We can help you choose a treatment center that is right for you.
