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.
Are you or a loved one struggling with Heroin? Are you looking for a way to truly overcome Drug addiction? Are you one of the many who return to treatment over and over only to relapse? Does it seem as if you or your loved one is getting worse and not better with each admission?
Finding the right help for Heroin addiction in Mississippi can be done. Treatment isn’t the answer with its high rates of relapse. In addition, treatment teaches you to live a life devoted to preventing addiction instead of leaving it behind you. It’s impossible to end addiction when you spend your time thinking how to make your life smaller to avoid it. You are, in essence, putting the addiction at the center of your life and in charge of what you do and don’t do. Leaving Heroin in charge of your life is a recipe for relapse.
Most people think of relapse as a slippery slope to ending sobriety. Treatment has worked hard to get that idea across because it not only places fear in people if they use again but it promotes the idea of relapse as an inevitable part of a lifetime cycle of relapse and recovery. At first glance, this seems plausible especially when you become aware that in the state of Mississippi of the 157 people who sought treatment for Heroin, 77.3% or 121 relapsed. The good news is that treatment is not the only option and a proven effective alternative exists.
