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.
You have taken the time to seek help because of your "addiction" to Heroin. You might be looking at rehab centers or treatment centers in Kansas and wonder what the best option for you is. Even if you do not choose St Jude's as your program, at least let us tell you one thing. You and only you can make change possible. You are not diseased, and your current circumstances do not need to dictate the course of your life from this moment forward. When you can call a Heroin treatment center you will most likely talk to a caring person, but with the wrong message, being that addiction is a disease. Remember that no matter what you decide... you can change
