Statistics on Treatment in Reno, Nevada

The authorities in Reno, and Nevada as a whole, understand that there is a significant problem with drug and alcohol abuse. As a result, there is a strong focus on making detox, rehab, and other forms of treatment for substance abuse disorders more accessible. For the state, statistics have shown that:

  • 9% of the population have used illicit drugs in the past month, higher than the national average of 8%.
  • The most common admissions to rehab facilities in the state are due to stimulants like methamphetamine.
  • Nevada ranks in the top 10 for illicit drug use, non-medical painkiller use, and alcohol dependency.
  • While there has been a decrease in the number of people seeking treatment for alcohol abuse, there has been an increase in the number of people abusing alcohol as well as a secondary drug.
  • Cocaine is a significant concern, with almost 800 people requiring treatment for it.
  • Most heroin addicts are aged between 21 and 25, and 69.4% of them are male.
  • There is a significant concern with young people seeking treatment for cannabis dependency. The largest percentage of those seeking rehab treatment for cannabis are aged between 12 and 17.
  • Methamphetamine is the most commonly abused drug among women, with 52.4% of admissions in relation to this drug are for females.

Interestingly, there has not been a marked increase in the number of treatment facilities that are available across the state. There are just 77 facilities in total, of which nine offer opioid treatment, and 15 offer inpatient care. It is hoped that this will soon change, as there has been a significant drop in the price of heroin, and the state has made it more difficult for people to access prescription medication. The result of this is that there has been a noted decrease in the number of people abusing prescription medication, but unfortunately not because they no longer have an opioid addiction.
