At Saint Jude's we have discovered that typical treatment is not necessary to stop someone from using heroin. In Arizona many people are seeking help as drug use is at an all time high. When somebody is told they are sick or an addict they feel as though they are suffering from an awful disease and must overcome a sickness. These thoughts leave them feeling helpless, powerless and dependent on a treatment to fix their supposed "heroin addiction." When an individual can understand that drug use is not an addiction they can come to terms and accept that in reality they can take control of their lives.
Mexican black tar heroin is the predominant type of heroin found in Arizona. Heroin is smuggled into Arizona primarily through Arizona's Ports of Entry by pedestrians or within hidden compartments in vehicles. When comparing the availability of heroin throughout Arizona, the Phoenix Metropolitan Area continues to remain the greatest area in the state for heroin availability. Over the last two years, the Phoenix Metropolitan Area has not witnessed any noticeable changes in the availability of black tar heroin. Arizona continues to witness a steady increase in the abuse of OxyContin. Oxycodone products are opiate agonists, like heroin and methadone. They are commonly prescribed to cancer patients, patients with chronic back pain, and patients recovering from surgery. Of these, OxyContin is heavily abused because it is available in high does and when ingested, it produces an intense high similar to heroin. According to surveys preformed by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), 974 people or 2.1% of Arizona's 46,010 Drug and Alcohol abusers that admitted themselves into treatment for Heroin. Not including the 4310 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more than one drug. Studies also show that 130,000 or 2.86% of Arizona's citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment for illicit drug use in the past year. There were also studies that showed 4.3% of high school adolescents had used heroin at some point in their lives.

Most people in Arizona who are looking for help with Heroin are hoping to find a permanent solution to Drug addiction.

In 2014, of the 4,082 people looking for help, 3,155 or 77.3% will relapse one or more times and return again to the same treatment with the same result.
Relapse is used by treatment to get people to come back over and over again. Research has shown that treatment doesn’t work. In fact, 3,155 or 77.3% people relapse every year with Heroin addiction.
