The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) through surveys has concluced that, 17,942 or 37.2% of Connecticut's 79,000 Drug and Alcohol abusers that admitted themselves into treatment for Heroin. Not including the 9,615 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more that one drug. Studies also show that 79,000 or 2.74% of Connecticut's citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment for illicit drug and alcohol use in the past year. There were also studies that showed 6.9% of High School Males had used heroin at some point in their lives. Demand for heroin is high and is easily accessible. Popularity of heroin is due, in part, to increased availability of low cost, high purity heroin that can be effectively snorted or smoked rather than injected. Abuse remains widespread, affecting both suburban and urban areas. The heroin is primarily being transported into Connecticut from New York City, usually entering the region via one the major interstates in automobiles equipped with hidden hydraulic compartments or "traps."
Is Heroin addiction a problem for you or a loved one? You’re not alone. When it comes to Drug addiction, the numbers seem to climb every year.
Most people in Connecticut who are looking for help with Heroin are hoping to find a permanent solution to Drug addiction. Traditional treatment , in the form of 12 Steps and rehabs, is not an effective solution for long term success. In 2014, of the 21,770 people looking for help, 16,828 or 77.3% will relapse one or more times and return again to the same treatment with the same result.
If you’ve attended traditional treatment, or even just heard about 12 Step or treatment programs, you probably have been told that addiction is a life sentence to a cycle of recovery and relapse. Treatment would have you believe that so you will accept returning to treatment again and again, particularly after relapse. Treatment programs promise relapse as a certainty because their focus is abstinence alone. You are told to fear your “triggers” of use and any stress until your world is very small and centered on fighting off that inevitable relapse. Relapse is inevitable if you are relying on treatment’s limited help for change. In Connecticut alone, of the 21,770 people seeking help for Heroin, 77.3% or 16,828 relapse in just one year. If treatment were the only alternative this would be terrible news but luckily there is a proven effective alternative.
Relapse can seem scary if you don’t know what to do next. Instead of returning to treatment that didn’t work before, many people in Connecticut look to Saint Jude Retreats for help with Heroin addiction. The reason is clear.
