In recent surveys preformed by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), 2,915 or 6.5% of Oregon's 45,076 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for heroin. Not including the 10,640 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more than one drug. Studies also show that 85,000 or 2.84% of Oregon' s citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment fort illicit drug and alcohol use in the past year. Surveys indicate that 0.7% of high school seniors polled had tried heroin at least one time in last month. The most common form of heroin encountered in Oregon is Mexican black tar heroin. Mexican drug trafficking organizations primarily control the transportation and distribution of Mexican black tar and brown powdered heroin into and throughout Oregon with Mexican street gangs and outlaw motorcycle gangs involved to a lesser extent. Black tar heroin is produced in Mexico and transported from the Southwest Border states directly to Oregon.
People choose to do the drugs and/or alcohol the same as they will make the CHOICE not to do them. The decision is within every person to be empowered or to be powerless. Being empowered is the obvious CHOICE to a happier and morefull life, now and in the future.
The numbers keep growing every day for addiction to Heroin. You read it in the newspapers and see it on TV. Politicians keep talking about getting more money for treatment. The question is if treatment worked for Drug addiction, wouldn’t the number of people addicted to Heroin be going down?
It’s true that people in Oregon 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 Oregon 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.
When you see relapse for what it is, you realize why treatment needs you to believe that your only options are recovery and relapse for the rest of your life. Since treatment focuses on abstinence without any real evidence based solutions, they expect to see people come back many times. In Oregon alone, 5,147 people were admitted for Heroin addiction and 77.3% or 3,979 people relapsed in one year! Treatment fails you and then tells you to expect and fear failure in the form of relapse. They don’t address how to move beyond addiction or relapse but merely to avoid it. In contrast, a non 12 Step solution helps you get research based information on addiction and formulate the personal plan for you to leave addiction behind.
While it’s clear that treatment doesn’t work from research and statistics, an effective solution is available.
