New York Heroin Rehab Information

New York Heroin Addiction

Heroin Addiction and rehab in New York In recent surveys preformed by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), 59,100 or 19.5% of New York's 303,095 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for heroin. Not including the 89,075 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more than one drug. Studies also show that 1 million or 2.65% of New York's citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment fort illicit drug and alcohol use in the past year. Surveys indicate that 1.6% of high school seniors polled had tried heroin at least one time in their lives.

Heroin is readily available from Colombian and Dominican organizations operating in the New York metropolitan area. Most of the heroin available is of South American origin and Colombia-based traffickers bring some of the purest heroin in the world to the streets of New York, utilizing the same distribution methods and money-laundering techniques they perfected in capturing the cocaine market. In some cases, the same organizations are distributing both cocaine and heroin. Much of the Colombian heroin is smuggled into New York by couriers and ingesters arriving at JFK Airport, on direct flights from Colombia, or after stopovers in Central or South America, or the Caribbean. Colombian heroin trafficking organizations have also developed increasingly sophisticated smuggling methods, including use of cargo shipments, soaking heroin into clothing, secreting them in shoes, furniture, and golf bags, as well as chemically impregnating heroin into plastic, which is then molded into common shapes. The heroin is subsequently recovered using chemical extraction processes. In February 2006, the arrests of 22 Colombian nationals who were responsible for smuggling over 20 kilograms of heroin into the United States were announced. Members of this organization used varied and unique concealment methods to smuggle over 20 kilograms of heroin into the United States. One method included the use of pure-bred puppies that had heroin packets surgically implanted in them. In one instance, six puppies were found impregnated with a total of three kilograms of liquid heroin packets. Colombian heroin is also smuggled to New York via Mexico and then by vehicle from the southwest United States, similar to the cocaine route. The heroin trafficking and abuse problem is increasing in upstate New York. Dealers in upstate regions often buy heroin in New York City and then return to their home areas via auto, bus, or train. Currently, some of the high-purity products are finding their way directly to users who are often unaccustomed to the strength.

Did You Know?

In July 2006, BAZ MOHAMMAD, the first Afghan heroin kingpin ever extradited from Afghanistan, pled guilty to conspiracy to import heroin into the United States. President George W. Bush previously designated BAZ MOHAMMAD as a foreign narcotics kingpin under the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act, which authorizes the President of the United States to make such designations when he determines that a foreign narcotics trafficker presents a threat to the national security, foreign policy, or economy of the United States. Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai authorized the extradition of BAZ MOHAMMAD to the United States in October 2005.

A Non 12 Step Program Can Help You End Heroin Addiction and Relapse in New York

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.

People in New York want to live independent lives and enjoy their freedom. Living with Drug addiction can seem to rob you or a loved one of choices as more of your life centers on Heroin. When people go to treatment, they are taught the cycle of giving up has only just begun and now they are giving up their lives to treatment rather than drugs. Neither solution is a good one. That’s why a non 12 Step approach that allows you to move permanently beyond addiction and focus on your life is such an important breakthrough option for people in New York.

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 New York alone, of the 79,350 people who look for help with Heroin addiction and go to treatment, 77.3% or 61,338 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.

Non 12 Step at Saint Jude's
"Theresa, Jim, Mark, Shannon, Renata, AlL the people at the St. Jude Retreats: I did not realize how much of an influence you all have had on my life until I have run into situations where I feel nothing is going right. In the each situation I have learned "from you" to look at the positive, in everything however small it may seem. Wow what a difference it makes focusing on the positive part of everything instead of the negative. I could give you numerous examples but they would be too lengthy to mention. Thank you again for teaching and coaching me to always look at the positive part of everything even if it only a small part of the total picture!" John Click Here For More Testimonials
