Think it’s hard to find drug treatment in Texas? You would be right

Here’s a number where Texas doesn’t want to be No. 1:

No. 1 in the fewest substance abuse treatment centers per 100,000 drug users.

The new study from Wallet Hub has Texas as No. 37 for the worst drug abuse problem by state, but that number of substance abuse treatment centers figure really stands out.

In part, some of it could be that we also were 48th in the country for the percentage of adult drug users.

Where was the worst state for drug use? The District of Columbia. The best was Minnesota.
