The number of Methamphetamine using women in Utah is skyrocketing. Many women have given up their children, jobs, homes, and many have also gone to jail. Over 45 percent of women arrested in Salt Lake City alone have tested positive for Crystal Meth in 2003. Officials report that Meth has replaced Cocaine as the stimulant of choice throughout the state because of long-lasting effects and availability. A Methamphetamine high can last anywhere from 8 to 24 hours where as a cocaine high will last as little as 20 minutes. Use is also high among the homosexual male Mormon population in Utah. An AIDS physician treating 90 percent of Utah's AIDS cases says that the majority of newly infected individuals are an average of 20 years old and contract AIDS in relation to Methamphetamine use.
Crystal meth in Utah is mostly being produced, controlled and shipped by Mexican drug organizations and gangs. Lt. Ferguson of the Utah County Major Crime Task Force reported that almost 95% of meth in our country is imported by the drug cartels. It has become so bad that it now comes in pounds instead of an ounce or two like it did a few years ago. Crystal meth rehab and treatment centers in Utah are readily available, but not always the most successful options for those trying to overcome drug use. Keep in mind however, that there are non-12 step programs that are available that can help you change your outlook on life for the better!
