Maricopa is a city that is located in the southwestern state of Arizona. Home to an estimated population of more than 52,000 people as of 2019 according to the United States Bureau, Maricopa is a moderately sized city by population. But regardless of size, America's drug epidemic has ripped through Maricopa and the state of Arizona as it has done across the nation since the turn of the millennium. According to America's Health Rankings, in 2019 there were 20.8 drug deaths for every 100,000 residents of the state, a rate that was well above the national average for the same year. This shows how badly the state of Arizona as a whole is struggling with substance abuse, and how many people are not getting the help that they need when it comes to drug and alcohol rehabilitation and detox services. Every single drug death could have been avoided with proper intervention and the right kind of help for the person's needs. But so many people never make it into treatment before their life is lost. This is because in early addiction it is not uncommon for the person to accidentally overdose. Their tolerance is very low, and they are not experienced with drugs and dosing. Couple this with the continually increased potency of drugs, often in a synthetic form which can cause an overdose in even the most experienced users, and you can see why it is vital that you never ignore signs of drug use in a loved one.

Here is a list that will help you find the different drug & alcohol treatment services in Maricopa, Arizona. The list can be incomplete so please do not hesitate to contact one of our treatment specialists at 1-800-304-2219.
