You may be thinking to yourself, how can Saint Jude's really help me, other drug rehabs just threw me around in loops? Well thankfully Saint Jude's is not like any other drug rehab program. What is actually considered an effective Drug Rehab Program? Well this answer varies greatly based on the opinion of the observer. For some, an effective Drug Rehab program follows a traditional 12 step model, in which the person is told that they have a disease and are powerless to overcome it. This supposed effective Drug Rehabilitation is anything but effective, as the success rates are very low, if they are measured at all. At Saint Jude's we focus on you and only you. You won't be labeled with a disease because our research has shown that addictions don't exist. Saint Jude's is different, and with a simple approach to your heroin use, you won't have to worry about being thrown for a loop anymore. Call today.
In surveys regarding drug and alcohol use in Massachusetts, The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) found that, 23,798 or 44.7% of Massachusetts 53,250 drug and alcohol abusers admitted themselves into treatment for heroin. Not including the 11,762 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more than one drug. Studies also show that 150,000 or 2.79% or Massachusetts 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 2.7% of high school seniors had tried heroin at least one time in their lives. Heroin is readily available from gram to kilogram quantities throughout the state. Historically, New York had been the primary source area, with the drug entering by interstate highway via publicly and privately operated vehicles. However, there continues to be increased transport of the drug directly from source countries and/or the southwestern United States. The primary suppliers are of Colombian and Dominican origin, with retail distribution among all ethnic groups. Heroin distribution and use continues throughout the state. While prices have remained low at both the wholesale and retail level, heroin purity levels have begun to fluctuate with both extremely high and low purity levels encountered at the street level.
