Drug Addiction Treatment, Drug and Alcohol Rehabs Recovery and Abuse
Cocaine is readily available throughout Idaho, but is largely limited to rich users. Mexican black tar and brown heroin are easily obtainable in the state. Marijuana cultivated in the state as well as produced in Mexico are available anywhere in Idaho. Methamphetamine has replaced cocaine as the drug of choice in Idaho recently. MDMA, LSD, and ketamine, are popular among young adults.
The most commonly abused pharmaceutical drugs encountered in the state are hydrocodone and benzodiazepines. Additionally, Soma and its generic equivalent are commonly abused in combination with hydrocodone. OxyContin is a growing problem in northern Idaho as it is more prevalent and easier to buy.
