In recent surveys preformed by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), 1,286 or 9.3% of Maine's 13,768 Drug and Alcohol abusers admitted themselves into treatment for heroin. Not including the 5,092 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more than one drug. Studies also show that 35,000 or 3.1% of Maine's citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment fort illicit drug and alcohol use in the past year. Surveys indicate that at the time of the survey 1.2% of high school seniors had tried heroin at some point in their lives. Massachusetts-based Dominican traffickers continue to be the primary suppliers of high quality heroin to the Maine distributors. These distributors, who typically transport the drug in passenger vehicles, provide for an increasing availability of heroin in the state. While use is more prevalent in southern communities, it is also encountered in coastal and Canadian-border communities and has spread into rural and remote areas. Heroin abuse has increased, particularly among younger teenagers in Bridgeton, Rockland, Penobscot, and York counties.
