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.
