Alcohol is the primary drug of abuse in Texas

  • Alcohol is the primary drug of abuse in Texas

  • Of particular concern is heavy consumption of alcohol, or binge drinking, which is defined as drinking five or more drinks at one time. In 2008, 12 percent of all secondary students said that when they drank, they usually drank five or more beers at one time, and 13 percent reported binge drinking of liquor

  • In 2008, 27 percent of all clients admitted to publicly funded treatment programs had a primary problem with alcohol



Increase in inhaling heroin—not just “Cheese” (heroin+Tylenol PM) but use of other diphenhydramine products such as Benedryl to produce powder from the Tar.

  • Increase in inhaling heroin—not just “Cheese” (heroin+Tylenol PM) but use of other diphenhydramine products such as Benedryl to produce powder from the Tar.

    • Problems with inhaled heroin continue to increase, especially among youths and young adults.
  • Suboxone (buprenorphine + naloxone) as treatment option for young heroin clients.

  • Proportion of Black crack users continues to decrease.

  • Decreased availability and increased price due to late 2008 gang moratorium and Colombians not fronting cocaine on consignment to Mexican traffickers.



Methamphetamine availability down and price up.

  • Methamphetamine availability down and price up.

  • Mexican limits on importation of pseudoephedrine have dropped from 140 tons in 2005 to 12 tons in 2007

  • Small meth labs starting up again



  • magnitude of the substance abuse and mental health problem on the Border is of serious concern.

  • Concern that people in need of substance abuse and mental health services will become more “closeted” and afraid to ask for help due to repercussions related to the safety of their families and/or immigration issues.

  • Increasing numbers of youth involved in drug trafficking and fewer options for them. Choosing whether or not to become involved in drugs and gangs is less a “choice” and instead a decision based on threats and fear.
