A bizarre and new practice is taking place according to a South Dakota Methamphetamine awareness website (http://www.mappsd.org/). The site states that beginning in year 2005 "Urine Extraction Labs" began to pop up across the state. The idea was brought to the media's attention when a California man attempted to save his urine and extract the Methamphetamine that he had already consumed. He, intern, ended up setting himself to fire, and now many law enforcement officials are finding bottles of urine in many users' homes. On a separate note, wholesale distribution of the drug is available to South Dakota via Sioux City, Iowa; and other various western states. Retail distribution is dominated by Caucasian and Hispanic males in their own residences, many of which who have recently moved into the state. Mexican Methamphetamine is also growing more available throughout the state via FedEx and UPS delivery from outside metropolitan areas.
Crystal meth in South Dakota is making a comeback according to the South Dakota High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA). Meth is no longer labeled to any certain gender or age group it is being used among all walks of life. There has been an increase of men using it and now it is being combined with marijuana which is troubling many counselors and treatment providers because it is cutting off their funds because of the increase in meth users. Crystal meth rehab and treatment centers in South Dakota are now treating youths 10 to 18 years old. There are now many available options for help if a 12 step program does not seem right for you. There are also non-12 step programs that are not just helpful physical wise, but that offer education and other ways to deal with meth use.
