In recent surveys preformed by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), 13,483 or 21.0% of Pennsylvania's 64,266 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for heroin. Not including the 13,904 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more than one drug. Studies also show that 240,000 or 2.37% of Pennsylvania' s citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment fort illicit drug and alcohol use in the past year. Surveys indicate that 0.6% of high school seniors polled had tried heroin at least one time in last month. South American heroin remains widely available in Pennsylvania, as distributors continued to target new customers in smaller towns and rural areas. Although the greater Philadelphia area is generally considered a consumer heroin market, North Philadelphia's street corner distribution sites also attracted distributors from locales throughout Pennsylvania. Heroin is also distributed to a lesser extent in West and South Philadelphia. There are also several Dominican sources of supply concentrated in Northeast Philadelphia. The relocation of trafficking organizations resulted in the increased availability of heroin in locations once thought to be exempt from the problems associated with heroin distribution and use.
Intelligence indicated that cheap, high-purity heroin remained readily available in the northeastern and southwestern parts of Pennsylvania, areas where cocaine distribution dominated for years. Availability appeared to be on the rise in western PA, especially in the Pittsburgh area, but overall purity remains low. However, heroin purity levels in the Pittsburgh area appeared to be rising slightly over the past several months. Heroin availability was relatively stable in the other areas, as it remained easy for users to obtain it in most cities and towns within Pennsylvania. Some of these cities and towns, especially Allentown, Bethlehem, Reading, and Easton, have become lower-level distribution points for users and distributors operating in surrounding communities. These cities are located within a short drive of Philadelphia, and other localities in eastern Pennsylvania are also located within a short drive of New York City.
Needing help for the rest of your life by the way of going to meetings everyday is a deterrent to staying sober. Trying to do the 12 steps exactly is also an impossible task which turns people back towards their substance abuse. On the other hand, there is the freedom model. This is where social and educational help is found. At Baldwin Research Institute, there is continuous research being done to save peoples lives though the Saint Jude Program. The Saint Jude Program is a social/educational program which helps people in the present but also helps make a clear cut path moving forward towards the future.
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.
Most people in Pennsylvania who are looking for help with Heroin are hoping to find a permanent solution to Drug addiction. Traditional treatment , in the form of 12 Steps and rehabs, is not an effective solution for long term success. In 2014, of the 15,962 people looking for help, 12,339 or 77.3% will relapse one or more times and return again to the same treatment with the same result.
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 Pennsylvania alone, of the 15,962 people seeking help for Heroin, 77.3% or 12,339 relapse in just one year. If treatment were the only alternative this would be terrible news but luckily there is a proven effective alternative.
