In recent surveys preformed by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), 6,314 or 10.1% of Washington's 62,494 state residents admitted themselves into treatment for heroin. Not including the 16,208 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more than one drug. Studies also show that 150,000 or 2.94% of Washington's citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment fort illicit drug and alcohol use in the past year. Surveys indicate that 2.6% of high school seniors polled had tried heroin at least one time in their lives. The most common type of heroin encountered in Washington is Mexican black tar heroin. Mexican drug trafficking organizations, which also traffic methamphetamine and cocaine, remain the primary source for black tar heroin in Washington. Black tar heroin is produced in Mexico and transported from distribution cities in southern California directly to western and eastern Washington.
