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."
When people look for help with Heroin addiction, they are looking to solve a problem now and forever. The rates of admissions for Heroin in 2014 were at 21,770 and they seem to climb every year. These numbers represent real people looking for a real, effective solution but not finding it.
If you’re looking for Drug addiction treatment in Connecticut, you are probably aware of the growing problem. Most people choosing a traditional treatment path will follow the cycle of relapse and return to treatment over and over again in their lifetime.
Relapse is a serious issue and all the more so as treatment not only ignores dealing with it but instills an expectation and fear of relapse in those who go to treatment. It’s not uncommon for people to be told while in treatment to expect to be back for more treatment when they fail. In only one year in Connecticut, 21,770 people sought treatment for Heroin addiction and 77.3% or 16,828 people relapsed. On the one hand treatment tells you that you are the cause of relapse yet they never give you information or help to move beyond. A more effective long term solution is a non 12 Step program that not only gives you accurate information on addiction but also helps you write a solid plan for meeting the goals and dreams of your life. At Saint Jude Retreats, we start with addiction but that’s just the beginning.
