In recent surveys preformed by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), 16 or 0.2% of Tennessee's 7,378 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for heroin. Not including the 1,267 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more than one drug. Studies also show that 125,000 or 2.56% of Tennessee' s citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment fort illicit drug and alcohol use in the past year. Surveys indicate that 0.4% of high school seniors polled had tried heroin at least one time in the past year. Heroin use in Tennessee is limited to a very small number of long-time users. The heroin trafficking situation has been very stable in the state for the past six years, though an increase in heroin availability and highway interdiction was reported recently. In addition, no great change in the demand for the drug is indicated by other factors in Tennessee. Texas and New York are the main sources of Mexican Black Tar and Southeast Asian heroin in Tennessee.
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 743 and they seem to climb every year. These numbers represent real people looking for a real, effective solution but not finding it.
Living in Tennessee you may be wondering if there is any treatment that works for addiction. The simple answer is treatment doesn’t work. While numbers increase for Drug addiction in Tennessee, helping someone overcome Heroin is really about looking for a non 12 Step program as research shows this approach to be an effective long term solution.
Relapse is a serious issue and all the more so as treatment not only ignores dealing with it but instills an expectation and fear of relapse in those who go to treatment. It’s not uncommon for people to be told while in treatment to expect to be back for more treatment when they fail. In only one year in Tennessee, 743 people sought treatment for Heroin addiction and 77.3% or 574 people relapsed. On the one hand treatment tells you that you are the cause of relapse yet they never give you information or help to move beyond. A more effective long term solution is a non 12 Step program that not only gives you accurate information on addiction but also helps you write a solid plan for meeting the goals and dreams of your life.
