Addiction and Treatment Statistics for Show Low, Arizona

Established in 1870, the city of Show Low is located in Navajo County in Arizona and is home to about 10,660 residents. The city got its quirky name, legend has it, because two locals were playing poker and couldn’t decide which of them would have to move out of town because they weren’t getting along. Marion Clark told Corydon E. Cooley that if he could show low, he would win. Cooley showed the deuce of clubs and won, and town got its name to commemorate the event. They even named a street in Show Low “Deuce of Clubs” in honor of that fateful poker game.
