AZ Substance Abuse Facts

Drug abuse among Arizona adults—particularly heroin—is fairly high. Consider the following statistics:

  • Past-year heroin use among Arizona residents aged 12 or older increased from 0.32 to 0.55% between 2013 and 2015. Compare this to the increase in the national rate of 0.3% to 0.33%.1
  • The number of individuals 12 and up with past-year alcohol use disorders (alcohol addictions) decreased slightly from 7.6% to 6.7% in this same time period. But that rate was still above the national rate (6.1%).1
  • In 2014-2015, past-month marijuana use was 8.5% among this age group, compared to a national rate of 8.3%.2,3

Recent data show Arizona youth also have slightly higher substance abuse rates than the national average. According to the High School Youth Risk Behavior Survey, 35% of Arizona teens in grades 9-12 said they had at least 1 drink of alcohol on at least 1 day in the past month, compared to 33% of teens nationwide. Of these, 19% said they binge drank at least once in the past month, compared to 18% nationwide. Lifetime marijuana use, inhalant use, and cocaine use in this group were all above the national average.4

Drug deaths in Arizona also outpace the U.S. average. From 2012-2014, male drug deaths averaged 22 per 100,000 people compared to 17.3 per 100,000 nationally, while female drug deaths averaged 15.2 per 100,000 compared to 10.8 nationally.5

Getting Addiction Treatment Help

Seeking treatment for drug or alcohol abuse is a big decision. To help narrow down your options, think about whether you’d like to stay close to home or travel for treatment, what kind of insurance coverage you have, and what kind of amenities you’d like (e.g., food, accommodations, recreational opportunities). Programs can vary from standard to luxury, and the more amenities a program has, the more expensive it will be.

Where Else Can I Find Help?

People seeking recovery who don’t have insurance do have a number of options available to help them pay for treatment. For instance, many programs in Arizona have sliding scale fees, which means you pay an agreed-upon rate based on your income. You can also usually work out a payment program where you make monthly payments instead of paying a lump sum.

Some people take out loans or borrow from their savings, while others seek donations through crowdfunding sites. Health care credit cards are another option for payment, but it’s important that if you go this route that you try to secure a reasonable interest rate.
