Drug Addiction Treatment in South DakotaSouth Dakota is far away from the many distribution hubs for major drug traffickers in America, so addictions to heroin and cocaine tend to be relatively few and far between in most parts of the state, including urban areas such as Sioux Falls and Rapid City. This means that drug addiction comes in forms different from many more heavily populated parts of the country. Methamphetamine and prescription drug use are popular forms of substance abuse. Meth is often manufactured by local illegal home labs and while prescription medications are available legally, both known to cause a sustaining chronic addiction. This is especially true with the abuse of prescription narcotics such as Vicodin and Adderall which are often very easy to get a prescription for and then abuse.

Alcoholism in Native American Populations

The main problem afflicting South Dakota is alcohol, not just because of its availability but also because of the high alcohol rate amongst heavily impoverished Indian reservations. Native Americans comprise up to 9% of the state's population and reservations often have unemployment as high as 80%. While Native Americans, like most other residents in South Dakota, have more resources today to treat their addictions at a professional drug/alcohol rehab center, alcoholism and drug abuse amongst Native Americans is still an ongoing problem that requires attention from state officials.

Alcoholism accounts for as much as 90% of the admissions to addiction treatment in this state, a chronic statistic which has not changed much in recent years unlike many other states that have seen huge influxes of prescription drug addicts in their areas. That is not to say it is not a problem, too, but the fact is that easy to find drugs like alcohol are in popular demand in remote and impoverished areas almost anywhere in the world.
