Louisiana Drug Rehabs
There are approximately 23,000 admissions to drug and alcohol rehabs in Louisiana each year, but unfortunately most of the programs have limited success and the relapse rate is pretty high.
With around 112,000 Louisiana citizens reporting illicit drug dependence or abuse within the past year, it is clear that not only is there a large gap between those who need addiction treatment and those who receive it, there is also the necessity of finding drug rehab programs that actually work.

Several factors contribute to Louisiana's historic position as a drug smuggling center. The Gulf of Mexico, the fifth largest sea in the world, forms the southern border of Louisiana, which consists of over 6,000 miles of navigable waterways, 7,721 miles of broken shoreline, and 397 miles of coastline highly conducive to maritime smuggling. In addition to the Mississippi River that snakes its way through the state, Louisiana has an extensive network of rivers, lakes, bayous, and canals. The Gulf Intracoastal Waterway, 3,000 miles of canal extending along the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico coasts in the southern and eastern U.S., gives New Orleans direct access westward to points in Louisiana and Texas, as far as the Mexican border and eastward through natural and artificial channels to Florida. In addition, there are three deepwater ports located in Baton Rouge, Lake Charles, and New Orleans. Each year up to 100,000 barges move in and out of the New Orleans port, the Nation's second largest port in exports.

Louisiana was one of the top ten states for rates in several drug-use categories: past-year cocaine use among persons age 12 or older, and illicit drug dependence among persons age 12 or older. The drug-induced death rate in Louisiana is higher than the national average. Approximately 7 percent of Louisiana residents (nearly 300,000 people) reported past-month use of illicit drugs; the national average was 8 percent. Marijuana is the most commonly cited drug among primary drug treatment admissions in Louisiana
