In recent surveys preformed by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), 201 or 3.3% of West Virginia's 6,043 state residents admitted themselves into treatment for heroin. Not including the 1,208 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more than one drug. Studies also show that 39,000 or 2.53% of West Virginia's citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment fort illicit drug and alcohol use in the past year. Surveys indicate that 3.6% of high school seniors polled had tried heroin at least one time in their lives. Both the demand for and the availability of heroin are very limited throughout West Virginia. Small enclaves of long-term heroin addicts exist, who rely on one another to procure supplies of heroin from secondary source cities such as Philadelphia and Baltimore. The heroin sold in West Virginia typically retains the street/brand name and packaging of the Philadelphia or Baltimore-area supplier.
Is Heroin addiction a problem for you or a loved one? You’re not alone. When it comes to Drug addiction, the numbers seem to climb every year.
When you live in West Virginia, finding the right Drug addiction treatment can seem difficult. You know you want a program that works and will last. You know you don’t want to end up in a cycle of relapse and return.
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 West Virginia alone, of the 491 people seeking help for Heroin, 77.3% or 380 relapse in just one year. If treatment were the only alternative this would be terrible news but luckily there is a proven effective alternative.
