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.
Living in Maine 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 Maine, 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.
Treatment would have you think your options are recovery and relapse. That’s very convenient as those are the options that treatment can promise. Treatment delivers on that promise to the detriment of people seeking help for Heroin. Of those, 3,178 people admitted for treatment, 77.3% or 2,457 relapsed. The proportion of people who return to treatment for relapse goes up as treatment continues. To sum it up, the more treatment you get the more likely you are to relapse! Treatment not only doesn’t work but outcomes for people can get worse with more treatment. Obviously, another more effective option is needed.
