In recent preformed by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), 64 or .8% of Montana's 8,147 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for heroin. Not including the 2,439 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more than one drug. Studies also show that 21,000 or 2.73% of Montana's citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment fort illicit drug and alcohol use in the past year. Surveys indicate that 3.6% of high school students polled had tried heroin at least one time in their lives. Heroin is not frequently encountered in Montana. Western Montana, primarily Missoula, has a higher availability of heroin due to the proximity to the state of Washington, historically a transshipment point for heroin in the Pacific Northwest.
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 104 and they seem to climb every year. These numbers represent real people looking for a real, effective solution but not finding it.
People in Montana know that addiction to Heroin keeps growing. Staying on the treatment treadmill isn’t working so many of them are looking for a proven, research based, results oriented solution other than treatment with its cycle of recovery and relapse.
If you’ve attended traditional treatment, or even just heard about 12 Step or treatment programs, you probably have been told that addiction is a life sentence to a cycle of recovery and relapse. Treatment would have you believe that so you will accept returning to treatment again and again, particularly after relapse. Treatment programs promise relapse as a certainty because their focus is abstinence alone. You are told to fear your “triggers” of use and any stress until your world is very small and centered on fighting off that inevitable relapse. Relapse is inevitable if you are relying on treatment’s limited help for change. In Montana alone, of the 104 people seeking help for Heroin, 77.3% or 80 relapse in just one year. If treatment were the only alternative this would be terrible news but luckily there is a proven effective alternative.
Relapse can seem scary if you don’t know what to do next. Instead of returning to treatment that didn’t work before, many people in Montana look to Saint Jude Retreats for help with Heroin addiction.
