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.
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 3,178 and they seem to climb every year. These numbers represent real people looking for a real, effective solution but not finding it.
When you live in Maine, finding the right Drug addiction treatment can seem difficult. You know you want a program that works and will last. You know you don’t want to end up in a cycle of relapse and return.
Relapse doesn’t have to be a lifelong fear. You or a loved one can move beyond addiction and relapse permanently by choosing an alternative to treatment in a non 12 Step program. Relapse is reinforced at treatment to explain the high rates of reverting to using Heroin again. When all treatment teaches is avoidance, how do you learn to make a life without Heroin at the center? Research shows that relapse occurs at higher rates when you return over and over to treatment. It’s not about trying treatment another time so you or a loved one will get it right this time. In Maine, of 3,178 admissions for Heroin, 77.3% or 2,457 people relapsed and returned for more treatment. In fact, returning can actually lower your chances of ending your addiction! Ending addiction is about having accurate information and a plan to live your life beyond the program-exactly what the non 12 Step program at Saint Jude Retreats does.
