The powerfully addictive drug cocaine is a white powdery substance that is snorted, injected or smoked. Crack cocaine is processed from cocaine hydrochloride and is smoked via freebasing. Common names for cocaine are “coke”, “flake”, “blow” and “snow”. Cocaine is a highly addictive drug, regularly leading to cocaine addiction, an immense national problem. However, the use of illicit drugs on a whole is a nationwide epidemic.

On a state level, in a survey by The National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), Alabama ranks as one of the lowest states based on drug use and abuse. The questions asked in the NSDUH survey are used to categorize those who are dependent on or abuse certain substances.

The 2006 National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services (NSSATS) states that there were 138 drug treatment facilities in Alabama; 66 were private for profit; 43 were private nonprofit. In 2006, most centers offered outpatient care; 138 offered residential care; and 19 offered opioid treatment. Nationally, drug addiction has also had serious effects on the psychological state of individuals 18 years and older. Additionally, individuals in this age group and 12 to 17 years suffered major depressive episodes. However, in Alabama, the rate for major depressive episodes has been below the national rate. In 2006, out of all 77 facilities, 56 percent received a portion of federal, state, or local funds that were governmentally regulated.

According to the NSDHU, unmet treatment is when an individual meets the requirements for drug abuse but have not been treated for the issue in the prior year. The criteria are outline in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th Edition (DSM-IV). In Alabama, unmet need for treatment has been lower than the national rate. For individuals 12 and older, these are the lowest rate the country has seen.

The data for the Alabama state treatment is pulled from the yearly one-day census in NSSATS and the yearly treatment admissions from the Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS). The 2006 NSSATS survey revealed that in Alabama there were 14,953 clients being treated, with 93% receiving outpatient treatment. Of this total, 1 percent included individuals below 18 years of age.

Over the last 15 years, a steady reduction has occurred in the number of admissions for alcohol or cocaine addiction, and concurrent increases occurred for meth and opiates besides heroin. Alcohol addiction, a disease, which has plagued and ruptured many happy homes, has seen a decrease in Alabama. Admissions relating to alcohol addiction saw a decline from 29% in 1993 to 14% in 2006. However, treatment admissions for individuals suffering from drug-use only have experienced a rise from 17 percent in 1993 to 48 percent in 2006. Although Alabama’s rates are certainly not as alarming as many other states’, treatment facilities are not alone in their quest to help those who have succumbed to drug and alcohol dependency. Statistics show that 39 percent of drug treatment programs had contracts or agreements with managed care establishments to help with substance abuse treatment services. Individuals needing help are advised to visit one of these treatment centers immediately.
