In recent surveys completed in Missouri preformed by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), 2,017 or 4.6% of Missouri's 44,119 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for heroin. Not including the 6,324 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more than one drug. Studies also show that 134,000 or 2.83% of Missouri's citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment fort illicit drug and alcohol use in the past year. Surveys indicate that 2.7% of high school students polled had tried heroin at least one time in their lives. The evolving heroin situation in the St. Louis area, particularly the growing availability of higher-purity white heroin has become a significant concern to drug law enforcement in the area. Although Mexican black-tar heroin continues to be the most readily available type of heroin found in St. Louis, the higher-purity white heroin is encountered with increasing frequency. While low purity, Mexican black-tar heroin dominates the market, some high purity (64% and 69%) Mexican black-tar heroin has been noted in the recent past. The availability of heroin in Missouri outside of Saint Louis and Kansas City remains very limited.
