The availability and rate of drug abuse in Arkansas remain high coinciding with the smuggling of methamphetamine, cocaine and marijuana, the drugs of choice, for local consumption and further distribution. Though smuggling methods involve all forms of transportation, the largest quantities of drugs are seized on the highways via interdiction programs. Each year, tens of thousands of pounds of marijuana and hundreds of kilograms of cocaine are seized on the interstates, particularly Interstate 40. Most large seizures involve tractor-trailers, although private vehicles account for a significant percentage of total seizures, particularly methamphetamine seizures. Significant quantities of narcotics are also seized from other forms of transportation, including commercial air and bus service.
Prescription Medication Abuse
Arkansas is one of the states that ranks in the top ten when it comes to nonmedical use of prescription pain relievers. One of the countless reasons that abusing prescription pain medication is so dangerous is that many people do not perceive them to be as much of a threat as traditional illicit substances. The problem is that these prescription medications can be just as addictive as street drugs when someone abuses them. If they are not prescribed to that particular person, the risk of addiction and possible complications skyrocket.
Because of the availability of these drugs and the fact that they are perceived as "less dangerous", it should come as no surprise to anyone that abuse of these drugs has skyrocketed over the past few years. Although it has happened throughout the entire country, Arkansas remains one of the most affected states for prescription drug abuse.

Understanding the Options Available
There are approximately 170,000 current illicit substance users in Arkansas. For many of these individuals, seeking the right type of treatment would signify a positive change in their life. Ultimately, the best way to select the right treatment that meets your needs is to know the facts and know what is available. We can help you with both these aspects if you so desire. It does not matter if someone is addicted to cocaine, alcohol, methamphetamine, anti-anxiety medications, prescription painkillers, or heroin, there is a treatment available. However, some people are hesitant to reach out for help because there are some misunderstandings about the treatment procedure. There are some detoxification and withdrawal myths that need to be addressed.
- Myth #1 – All I need is physical detox: There are a handful of people that this might be enough for them, but for the vast majority of patients it would not be sufficient. This is confusing for many people so let us elaborate a bit. Yes, it is important to break the physical dependence upon whatever substance someone is addicted to. However, that does just that, it focuses solely on the physical dependence. Because addiction is a two-part problem, it should be obvious that merely dealing with the physical side does nothing when it comes to dealing with the psychological dependence upon the substance. Just because someone doesn't have the physical need to use a substance does not necessarily mean that they will not turn to it when they are sad, or possibly even when they are happy.
- Myth #2 – Rehab is not necessary to detox: Like the previous myth, this is both true and false. There are a number of people who managed to stop using at home, without anyone helping them and still managed to avoid relapse. However, the number of people that have this type of success is very small. Without therapeutic and medical support, many end up relapsing. This is especially common because they realize the withdrawal symptoms that are tormenting them will go away if they just agree to use again. Another reason that home detoxification is not recommended is that there may be problems with the respiratory system, problems with cardiovascular health, or underlying medical conditions. Without supervision, complications that arise during detoxification may lead to serious health problems and in some extreme cases even death.
- Myth #3 – Just take medication to relieve withdrawal symptoms: It is certainly true that depending on what someone is addicted to and how much they are taking on a daily basis, someone may be provided with specific medication to help with symptoms they will experience. There is no one medication that is going to remove all the withdrawal symptoms an individual may experience. Even people who use Suboxone or methadone to withdraw from opiates will have some form of withdrawal symptoms. This is normal and to be expected, the body needs time to adjust to the change that is being made.
