When we think of Nevada, we usually visualize the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas, better known as “Sin City.” Legalized gambling and prostitution in addition to lenient marriage and divorce laws helped turn the state into a major tourist spot. But, the state has much more to offer than drinking and gambling. In fact, mining is still a significant industry, making Nevada the fourth largest gold producer in the world.
The massive tourism in Nevada brings more than happy-go-lucky people looking for a little fun. Drug and alcohol-related problems are already rampant in the state, but tourism brings even more illicit substances into the area. Drug-related crime and death are at an all-time high. For instance, in 2016, there were 665 drug overdose deaths in Nevada. Overall, the crime rate in Las Vegas is 120% higher than the national average. Many of the crimes are traced back to substance abuse.
Below are some statistics that show just how bad the situation is in the state:
More than 25,000 adolescents (11.7%) reported illicit drug use in the past month.
As many as 71,000 people aged 12 or older were dependent on or abused illicit drugs in the past year.
About 54,000 people aged 12 to 20 reported binge alcohol use in the last 30 days.
About 201,000 people over the age of 12 abused or were dependent on alcohol.
Nevada ranks in the top five states with the most people depended on illegal substances.
The state ranks second in the country for nonmedical opioid use.
About 77.6% of adolescents perceived no significant risk from smoking marijuana once a month.
Meth is the most cited drug of abuse in 30% of treatment admissions in Nevada.
Overdose deaths involving meth killed 202 people in 2015.
In 2015, 71 people died from heroin overdoses.
About 7% of high school students admitted to using cocaine in any form in the last year.
If we look at the numbers as a whole, that adds up to a lot of people who are not living life to fullest. Fortunately, many of them receive treatment and turn their lives around, but far too many are becoming just another statistic.
The best approach to ending addiction is to keep it from happening in the first place. For that reason, hundreds of organizations and coalitions are active in Nevada to expand prevention and awareness campaigns. These are all staffed by some highly motivated and dedicated individuals who want to save lives:
