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.
