Information on Drugs, Alcohol and Interventions in Missouri
Methamphetamine is rampant throughout the state. Not only is it imported from Mexico, it is also created in local labs all across Missouri. Heroin has become a major drug of choice is major cities, such as St. Louis, and is spreading out into rural areas. A major issue with heroin is that it is now being laced with a drug called Fentanyl. This drug is stronger than pure heroin and it results in many of the recent heroin-related overdoses. Cocaine is still a popular drug in Missouri’s metropolitan areas but not as common as heroin.
