The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) completed surveys regarding the drug use in Mississippi and found that 79 or .9% of Mississippi's 9,140 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for heroin. Not including the 2,126 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more than one drug. Studies also show that 166,000 of Mississippi's citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment fort illicit drug and alcohol use in the past year. Surveys indicate that 1.8% of high school students polled had tried heroin at least one time in their lives. Heroin is considered a minimal drug threat in Mississippi due to the low demand and high cost of the drug. For fiscal year 2006, the State of Mississippi allocated $20.8 million for alcohol and drug treatment. Moreover, this funding is for treatment at state funded facilities only. Private programs are treating individuals as well without state subsidizing. The cost of treatment has increased 15 to 20 percent over the past five years. The projected increase in the cost of treatment is expected to continue at the same rate; however, this increase could change due to unforeseen events. The cost of treatment per person varies significantly, depending on the individual's needs.
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 157 and they seem to climb every year. These numbers represent real people looking for a real, effective solution but not finding it.
It’s true that people in Mississippi value their independence and freedom. If you or a loved one live with Drug addiction, you know how Heroin can seem to rob you of your freedom and life choices. Choosing treatment can feel like your only options are to be a prisoner to the drug or to the treatment program. Finally, people in Mississippi have another, more effective option that restores freedom without fear of relapse and without having to dedicate yourself to working a program-the non 12 Step program at Saint Jude Retreats. You can finally get beyond not only addiction but also the lifelong fear of relapse promoted by treatment.
Relapse is often spoken of an absolute certainty when discussing Heroin addiction. Unfortunately, most people who attend treatment not only are taught this but expect to experience it and it can then be a self fulfilling prophecy! Treatment promotes the idea of relapse because treatment doesn’t work. In Mississippi alone, of the 157 people who look for help with Heroin addiction and go to treatment, 77.3% or 121 relapse. When you tell someone to expect what you have just given them to fail and then teach them it is their fault when it does, you have a return customer. Treatment focuses on abstinence and fear rather than helping people to recognize their own power to help themselves and move beyond addiction. Of course treatment fails but it is important to remember that doesn’t mean you or a loved one fails if relapse occurs. Instead it is time to look for a proven effective alternative that can work for long term success.
