In Louisiana, there are multiple Drug Rehab centers to choose from--make sure the one you enter is the right one for you. Make sure that the rehab you select does not tell you, that you may need additional meetings after you graduate their program. Freedom Model's is a true, non 12-step program and do not inform our guests they will need to continue rehab after they leave us. Freedom Model teaches choice and continuing to be involved in support meetings is not an effective part of your journey.
Heroin is considered a low drug threat in most of Louisiana, except in New Orleans, primarily due to availability and cost. Heroin abuse in Louisiana, especially New Orleans, is historically cyclical. According to the Drug Enforcement Administration's Domestic Monitoring Program, South American heroin is the most common type available. Heroin is sold at the street level in bags or papers in one-half gram quantities. The average purity level for New Orleans from February to August 2005 was 33.04 percent. There was one seizure in the New Orleans area in June 2005 with a purity level of 75.8 percent. The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) discovered through surveys that 254 or 1% of Louisiana's 24,608 Drug and Alcohol abusers admitted themselves into treatment for heroin. Not including the 6,165 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more than one drug. Studies also show that 113,000 or 3.12% of Louisiana's citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment fort illicit drug and alcohol use in the past year.
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.
If you’re looking for Drug addiction treatment in Louisiana, you are probably aware of the growing problem. Most people choosing a traditional treatment path will follow the cycle of relapse and return to treatment over and over again in their lifetime.
Most people think of relapse as a slippery slope to ending sobriety. Treatment has worked hard to get that idea across because it not only places fear in people if they use again but it promotes the idea of relapse as an inevitable part of a lifetime cycle of relapse and recovery. At first glance, this seems plausible especially when you become aware that in the state of Louisiana of the 1,749 people who sought treatment for Heroin, 77.3% or 1,352 relapsed. The good news is that treatment is not the only option and a proven effective alternative exists.
