In recent surveys preformed by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), 656 or 2.9% of Wisconsin's 22,823 state residents admitted themselves into treatment for heroin. Not including the 4,796 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more than one drug. Studies also show that 122,000 or 2.86% of Wisconsin's citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment fort illicit drug and alcohol use in the past year. Surveys indicate that 2.4% of high school seniors polled had tried heroin at least one time in their lives. The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office records show that heroin abuse has stabilized in Wisconsin over the past few years. Most heroin use is concentrated in the Milwaukee and Racine areas. Rising levels of purity give users the option of snorting the drug rather than injecting, an option that may appeal to younger users. West African traffickers are the sources of Southwest Asian heroin available in Milwaukee, while South American heroin is distributed primarily by Dominican traffickers. The availability of brown heroin remains low, and black tar heroin is rare in Milwaukee.
The Saint Jude Program is an example of a residential drug rehab program. This program is a four week social-educational program using a non twelve step approach. The program provides the beneficial structure for the individual while teaching choice to the individual as they prepare for a life free from substance abuse. When looking for a drug rehab it is important to educate yourself about the differences each program has to offer. Be aware of your individual needs or concerns, make a call, ask lots of questions and choose the best option for you or your loved one and begin the life free from substance abuse.
Are you or a loved one struggling with Heroin? Are you looking for a way to truly overcome Drug addiction? Are you one of the many who return to treatment over and over only to relapse? Does it seem as if you or your loved one is getting worse and not better with each admission?
People in Wisconsin want to live independent lives and enjoy their freedom. Living with Drug addiction can seem to rob you or a loved one of choices as more of your life centers on Heroin. When people go to treatment, they are taught the cycle of giving up has only just begun and now they are giving up their lives to treatment rather than drugs. Neither solution is a good one. That’s why a non 12 Step approach that allows you to move permanently beyond addiction and focus on your life is such an important breakthrough option for people in Wisconsin.
Treatment would have you think your options are recovery and relapse. That’s very convenient as those are the options that treatment can promise. Treatment delivers on that promise to the detriment of people seeking help for Heroin. Of those, 2,191 people admitted for treatment, 77.3% or 1,694 relapsed. The proportion of people who return to treatment for relapse goes up as treatment continues. To sum it up, the more treatment you get the more likely you are to relapse! Treatment not only doesn’t work but outcomes for people can get worse with more treatment. Obviously, another more effective option is needed.
