Recently surveys were completed by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), 19,046 or 32.2% of Maryland's 51,215 drug and alcohol abusers admitted themselves into treatment for heroin. Not including the 11,698 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more than one drug. Studies also show that 117,000 or 2.6% of Maryland'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 in the past 12 months. Heroin is abused throughout Maryland, but is centered in and around the city of Baltimore, where high-purity heroin is readily available. Baltimore is home to higher numbers of heroin addicts and heroin-related crime than almost any other city in the nation and these problems tend to spill over into adjoining counties where many heroin distributors maintain residences. The enormous demand for heroin in the Baltimore metropolitan area led to an increase in the drug's abuse among teens and young adults, who routinely drive into the city to obtain heroin for themselves and other local abusers. In the Baltimore metropolitan area, heroin is sold almost exclusively by street name and packaged in gelatin capsules.
Looking for help with addiction to Heroin can seem an impossible hope. The reason is treatment for addiction doesn’t work and only ends in a lifetime cycle of relapse and recovery instead of being able to stop addiction and put it in your past. You want to build a fulfilling life, not a life lived around recovery and fearing your next relapse. There is a better solution and it’s not treatment—it’s non 12 Step.
If you live in Maryland, you already know the rates of Heroin addiction are climbing. With so many resources spent on rehabs and traditional treatment, how can the problem be getting worse? In a word: relapse.
Relapse is a problem because treatment doesn’t work! Going back to treatment that didn’t work before is likely to have the same result of not ending addiction. Even worse, people who go to treatment over and over may actually binge more or even try combinations that can prove lethal. In 2014, 14,475 sought treatment. 77.3% or 11,189 relapsed after treatment for Heroin. So if the answer isn’t treatment—what does work?
