Saint Jude's has been challenging treatment programs in Kansas and around the world for over twenty years, exposing their questionable methods, and harmful rhetoric. At Saint Jude's you will not hear our staff talk about a "cure," because you or your loved one is not diseased or sick or mentally ill. St. Jude's will not tell you to "recover" because there is nothing to "recover" from. We will however, teach you how to empower yourself to levels you never thought possible. We will help you to learn methods of self examination and improve life and social skills.
In recent surveys preformed by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), 69 or 0.45% of Kansas' 15,495 Drug and Alcohol abusers admitted themselves into treatment for heroin. Not including the 4,151 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more than one drug. Studies also show that 52,000 or 2.35% of Kansas' citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment for illicit drug and alcohol use in the past year. Although Mexican black tar heroin continues to be the most readily available type of heroin, there is now a significant presence of white heroin in the Kansas area and it is said to be "easily available." Black tar heroin is typically sold in small plastic baggies or in gelatin capsules (known locally as buttons) for $10. Eight to ten capsules weigh a gram and the Mexican heroin is primarily brought into the area from California, Arizona, Texas and Chicago, Illinois. While prices for white heroin are said to be dropping to record lows, the purity is higher than normal, with common levels of 35% - 45%. This rise in purity is reflected in the Domestic Monitor Program (DMP), which includes all types of heroin.
Are you or a loved one searching for treatment for Heroin addiction? Stop! Treatment doesn’t work for Drug addiction. In fact the number of people admitted for Heroin treatment were 85 in Kansas and keep climbing every year.
Living in Kansas you may be wondering if there is any treatment that works for addiction. The simple answer is treatment doesn’t work. While numbers increase for Drug addiction in Kansas, helping someone overcome Heroin is really about looking for a non 12 Step program as research shows this approach to be an effective long term solution.
Relapse is often spoken of an absolute certainty when discussing Heroin addiction. Unfortunately, most people who attend treatment not only are taught this but expect to experience it and it can then be a self fulfilling prophecy! Treatment promotes the idea of relapse because treatment doesn’t work. In Kansas alone, of the 85 people who look for help with Heroin addiction and go to treatment, 77.3% or 66 relapse. When you tell someone to expect what you have just given them to fail and then teach them it is their fault when it does, you have a return customer. Treatment focuses on abstinence and fear rather than helping people to recognize their own power to help themselves and move beyond addiction. Of course treatment fails but it is important to remember that doesn’t mean you or a loved one fails if relapse occurs. Instead it is time to look for a proven effective alternative that can work for long term success.
