In recent surveys preformed by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), 3,744 or 15.1% of Texas's 42,040 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for heroin. Not including the 3.6% state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more than one drug. Studies also show that 146,000 or 2.62% of Utah citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment fort illicit drug and alcohol use in the past year. Surveys indicate that 1.6% of high school seniors polled had tried heroin at least one time in the past year. Mexican black tar (MBT) heroin remains the primary heroin threat in north Texas. MBT heroin is readily available throughout north Texas. Based on intelligence, the greater Dallas Fort Worth area is a distribution point for MBT heroin shipped to the Eastern, Southeastern, and Midwestern United States. The average heroin purity level for the Dallas Field Division has gradually fallen for four consecutive quarters, from a peak of 67% to 15% during the first quarter of FY2007. Mexican black tar and brown heroin are routinely seized in south Texas. In recent years, the Houston Field Division has been identified as a transshipment point for kilogram quantities of Colombian heroin destined for the east coast. Small quantities of Asian heroin are sporadically encountered in south Texas, smuggled in via courier or seized from the mail. Within the last year, there has been a noticeable increase in the availability and purity of Mexican heroin in south Texas. Mexican black tar and brown heroin are routinely seized at the POEs in El Paso County. Black tar heroin has long been available in this region from sources in the Mexican States of Durango and Chihuahua. Heroin is most commonly smuggled in secret compartments in private vehicles and concealed on persons. The heroin is usually carried across the border by couriers, however there is a developing trend of heroin distributors crossing the border with their supply. Heroin availability has shown a steady increase over the past five years as evidenced by the increase in kilogram seizures and a steady decrease in price. Enforcement operations have significantly disrupted the availability of street level quantities of heroin in the area and briefly reduced the number of overdoses and overdose deaths. However, in part because heroin use is socially and culturally accepted in the area, the heroin issue consistently reappears.
Looking for help with addiction to Heroin can seem an impossible hope. The reason is treatment for addiction doesn’t work and only ends in a lifetime cycle of relapse and recovery instead of being able to stop addiction and put it in your past. You want to build a fulfilling life, not a life lived around recovery and fearing your next relapse. There is a better solution and it’s not treatment—it’s non 12 Step.
When you live in Texas, 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.
Relapse is often spoken of an absolute certainty when discussing Heroin addiction. Unfortunately, most people who attend treatment not only are taught this but expect to experience it and it can then be a self fulfilling prophecy! Treatment promotes the idea of relapse because treatment doesn’t work. In Texas alone, of the 6,083 people who look for help with Heroin addiction and go to treatment, 77.3% or 4,702 relapse. When you tell someone to expect what you have just given them to fail and then teach them it is their fault when it does, you have a return customer. Treatment focuses on abstinence and fear rather than helping people to recognize their own power to help themselves and move beyond addiction. Of course treatment fails but it is important to remember that doesn’t mean you or a loved one fails if relapse occurs. Instead it is time to look for a proven effective alternative that can work for long term success.
