New Mexico is the fifth largest and least populous state in the U.S.  Spanning across 121,590 square miles the landscape varies from deserts and mesas to snow-peaked mountains. The state has a significant U.S. military presence with security agencies conducting testing and research in the area.  New Mexico ranks 4th in the nation for crude oil production and 8th in natural gas production.  

Due to the sparsely populated border areas makes this state a haven for illegal drug traffickers.  Also, illicit drugs are smuggled into New Mexico through El Paso and Juarez.  The massive amount of drug trafficking has caused the state to have the 8th highest overdose death rate in the nation.  In fact, eight out of ten of the leading causes of death in the state is partially attributed to alcohol, drug, and tobacco abuse.  Now, let’s look at some of the other drugs that are causing problems in New Mexico.

Addiction Statistics in New Jersey

According to New Jersey Advance Media, more than 2,000 people died from drug overdoses in the state in 2016.  It has been said that if you put all of New Jersey’s heroin addicts in one place, it would be the state’s 4th largest city with about 128,000 residents.  Of course, this isn’t a possibility, but it gives a little perspective on how many heroin addicts there are in the state today.

Here are some other shocking statistics about the overall drug problems in New Jersey:

  • About 15% of high school students tried alcohol by age 13.
  • Heroin claimed more than 1,200 lives in New Jersey last year.
  • The rate of heroin abuse in NJ is three-times the national average.

  • More than 70 percent of teens who abuse prescription drugs reported getting their drugs from family members or friends.
  • In one year alone, more than 200 meth labs were seized on New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut.
  • About 39% of young people under age 17 have smoked marijuana.

Addiction Statistics in New Mexico

First, a few more facts about alcohol in New Mexico.  The state’s death rate from alcohol-related diseases is more than twice the national rate.  Alcohol-related injury deaths are 1.7 times the national average.  But, alcohol is by far not the only substance that is causing problems in the state.  For instance:

  • Unintentional drug overdoses account for about 85% of drug overdose deaths.
  • Opioids account for 47% of those deaths. Heroin (37%), cocaine (15%), meth (20%), antidepressants (12%), and muscle relaxers (24%) are also major factors.
  • New Mexico’s cocaine abuse rate (4.5%) is higher than the last available U.S. rate (3.0%)
  • About 6.6% of 12th graders are current cocaine users.
  • Lifetime meth use rates dropped from 7.7% in 2007 to 4.4% in 2015.
  • About 3.2% of 12th graders have used meth recently.
  • Among high school students, 26.1% reported current alcohol use.
  • More than 9% of 12th graders admit using prescription drugs to get high.
  • Heroin use among high school students is at 3.9% today.
  • Past-month marijuana and methamphetamine use is prevalent among New Mexico students (25.3%).

Last year the state received A $298,000 grant to fund a program called Peer-to-Peer that will place peer engagement specialists in emergency rooms.  These “coaches” will talk with overdose survivors to provide support and advice.
