Heroin is a serious problem in Utah. Mexican brown and black tar heroin are available throughout the state with multi-ounce and larger quantities distributed in major cities. Mexico and Southern California are the source areas for multi-ounce and pound quantities of heroin. Mexican organizations trafficking in heroin also distribute cocaine and methamphetamine. Street-level distribution organizations are typically run by a dispatcher who directs runners to deliver to customers in public areas such as parking lots. Prices and purity levels for gram-level heroin purchases in Utah have remained relatively stable in the last two years. In recent surveys preformed by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), 8.47% of Utah 19,943 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 46,000 or 2.86% of Utah citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment fort illicit drug and alcohol use in the past year. Surveys indicate that 2.9% of high school seniors polled had tried heroin at least one time in the past year.
Are you or a loved one searching for treatment for Heroin addiction? Stop! Treatment doesn’t work for Drug addiction. In fact the number of people admitted for Heroin treatment were 2,286 in Utah and keep climbing every year.
Living in Utah you may be wondering if there is any treatment that works for addiction. The simple answer is treatment doesn’t work. While numbers increase for Drug addiction in Utah, helping someone overcome Heroin is really about looking for a non 12 Step program as research shows this approach to be an effective long term solution.
Relapse is a serious issue and all the more so as treatment not only ignores dealing with it but instills an expectation and fear of relapse in those who go to treatment. It’s not uncommon for people to be told while in treatment to expect to be back for more treatment when they fail. In only one year in Utah, 2,286 people sought treatment for Heroin addiction and 77.3% or 1,767 people relapsed. On the one hand treatment tells you that you are the cause of relapse yet they never give you information or help to move beyond.
