According to studies completed by the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), 1,426 or 3.1% of Minnesota's 45,334 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for heroin. Not including the 10,950 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more than one drug. Studies also show that 109,000 or 2.59% of Minnesota's citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment fort illicit drug and alcohol use in the past year. Surveys indicate that 3.5% of high school seniors polled had tried heroin at least one time in their lives. Heroin distribution and use have not been significant problems in Minnesota, but recent reports indicate there has been an increase in heroin use, especially in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. At the wholesale level, sources of supply include Nigerian/West African traffickers operating from Chicago and New York, African American street gangs with ties to Chicago, and Mexican traffickers operating from the southwest border and from Chicago. At the retail level, heroin is distributed primarily by Hispanic and African American street gangs.
When people look for help with Heroin addiction, they are looking to solve a problem now and forever. The rates of admissions for Heroin in 2014 were at 5,613 and they seem to climb every year. These numbers represent real people looking for a real, effective solution but not finding it.
People in Minnesota know that addiction to Heroin keeps growing. Staying on the treatment treadmill isn’t working so many of them are looking for a proven, research based, results oriented solution other than treatment with its cycle of recovery and relapse.
Relapse is often spoken of an absolute certainty when discussing Heroin addiction. Unfortunately, most people who attend treatment not only are taught this but expect to experience it and it can then be a self fulfilling prophecy! Treatment promotes the idea of relapse because treatment doesn’t work. In Minnesota alone, of the 5,613 people who look for help with Heroin addiction and go to treatment, 77.3% or 4,339 relapse. When you tell someone to expect what you have just given them to fail and then teach them it is their fault when it does, you have a return customer. Treatment focuses on abstinence and fear rather than helping people to recognize their own power to help themselves and move beyond addiction. Of course treatment fails but it is important to remember that doesn’t mean you or a loved one fails if relapse occurs. Instead it is time to look for a proven effective alternative that can work for long term success.
