Admissions to drug rehab centers in South Dakota are primarily for marijuana, methamphetamine and prescription drugs. It is not a state with heavy heroin or cocaine availability and has among the lowest rates of illicit drug use in the country.
Since prescription drug use continues to rise in the state and around the country, South Dakota recently enacted a prescription drug monitoring program. These programs are now used in the majority of states and help to combat “doctor shopping” and prescription fraud by people who are either addicted to and/or selling pharmaceuticals.
The areas with the most drug rehabs in South Dakota include Sioux Falls, Rapid City and Yankton. Due to the lower population, there are only a few other programs scattered throughout the state, and you can check out those listings on this site.
Many people from South Dakota find themselves considering leaving the state to locate a suitable treatment program. While there are appropriate facilities in the state, finding one that is an ideal match with your situation may be more difficult.
