Shreveport, Louisiana, is home to approximately 200,145 people. It is found in Caddo Parish, around 170 miles from Beaumont and 168 miles from Mesquite. During the 1990s, there was a slight increase in the population of the city, but it has been declining, albeit slowly, ever since. Unfortunately, Shreveport has higher than the state average rates of both property crimes and violent crimes. This has been linked to the high levels of drug and alcohol abuse in the city.


Statistics on Substance Abuse in Shreveport, LA


The statistics on substance abuse in Shreveport show that there are considerable problems with its young population. For instance:


  • 2.8% of kids aged 12 are initiated to smoking.
  • 6.2% of all kids aged between 12 and 17 are initiated to smoking.
  • Young boys are at particular risk of starting to smoke, with much higher rates compared to young girls.
  • 51.8% of all residents over the age of 12 have consumed alcohol in the past month.
  • 1.9% of all youths between the age of 12 and 17 needed treatment for drug or alcohol abuse. Unfortunately, only 8.4% of those youths who needed detox and rehab treatment went on to receive it, an issue of particular concern for the city as a whole.


The Shreveport Approach


Shreveport is particularly concerned about its levels of substance abuse among its younger population. With almost two out of every 100 young people requiring treatment, but so few actually receiving it, the city felt some sort of intervention had to be put in place. They have placed a focus on both prevention and treatment. First of all, through various community initiatives, they aim to steer more young people away from substance abuse and towards healthy alternatives. This is done in partnership with health officials, educators, law enforcers, community organizations, and residents themselves.


At the same time, the city recognizes that there is an immediate need for more accessible treatment facilities. As such, more awareness has been raised about the available detox and rehab facilities in and around the city, where all of those who have a dependency or addiction are able to get treatment. While people from every demographic are able to seek out this help, most rehab facilities place a focus on a specific population, such as young people, the elderly, specific genders, members of the LGBTQ+ community, and so on. In so doing, they aim to remove the barriers to seeking treatment.


It should also be noted that there is also a focus on enforcement. Shreveport has launched the 26th district adult and juvenile drug court. Here, people who have come in contact with the law and who have a substance abuse problem, are given the opportunity to seek treatment for their addiction instead of having to go to prison. If they complete their treatment, their criminal cases will be dismissed. These programs have been proven to be very successful across the country. Yet, Shreveport continues to be a minority in offering a juvenile drug court, with most other cities focusing on adults only.
