Phoenix, Arizona, is home to approximately 1,321,045 people. It is found in Maricopa County and is located around 10 miles outside of Tempe and 9 miles from Glendale. During the 1990s, Phoenix saw quite a significant population boom, with growth of around 34%. Today, the city continues to grow, at a rate of approximately 1.6% per year. Unfortunately, as Phoenix is a very large city, it also has significant problems, including drug and alcohol abuse. There has been a demonstrated positive correlation between substance abuse and crimes, and the rates of both violent and property crimes are higher in Phoenix than in the rest of the state. This has given rise to city authorities and other organizations to come together in order to gain a greater understanding of the extent of the problem, and to develop prevention, intervention, and treatment approaches to come up with solutions.

 

Statistics on Substance Abuse in Phoenix, AZ

 

Statistics show that, in Phoenix:

 

  • Initiation into cocaine in the past year continues to be high. Fortunately, the rate has been declining significantly since 2002, which means efforts to fight cocaine abuse are having a positive affect.
  • The geographical area in which Phoenix is found, the southwest, has significantly lower rates of underage alcohol abuse than in the rest of the state. It is believed that 24.7% of young people consume alcohol before they reach the age of 21 in the Phoenix area. In the Northeast, it stands at 30%, and in the Midwest it is 27.1%. This shows that efforts to target young people in order to prevent them from turning to substances could be having a positive effect.
  • 78% of young people with ages between 12 and 17 have indicated that they have seen or heard messages to prevent drug and alcohol abuse in the past year, and that these messages were found outside of the school. At the last count in 2007, 77.9% had heard or seen these messages. While heartening, the rate in 2002 was 83.2%, which could indicate that the campaigns are starting to lose their effectiveness.
  • 8.9% of young people who had seen the messages would still use illicit drugs. Meanwhile, 10.2% of young people who had not seen messages would use illicit drugs. Hence, although more needs to be done, the messages are having some positive effect.

 

The messages to highlight the dangers of substance abuse to young people are part of the prevention efforts that the city authorities have put in place. At the same time, Phoenix officials have put intervention methods in place, including through their drug courts. In these courts, people are ordered to receive detox and rehab treatment for their addiction, or face the prospect of going to jail. At the same time, the city is engaged in increasing access to these types of facilities, so that those suffering from substance abuse who have not come into contact with the law are still able to go to detox and rehab. It is understood that proper treatment is the best way to ensure people can beat the disease that is addiction.
