In recent surveys preformed by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), 6,314 or 10.1% of Washington's 62,494 state residents admitted themselves into treatment for heroin. Not including the 16,208 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more than one drug. Studies also show that 150,000 or 2.94% of Washington's citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment fort illicit drug and alcohol use in the past year. Surveys indicate that 2.6% of high school seniors polled had tried heroin at least one time in their lives. The most common type of heroin encountered in Washington is Mexican black tar heroin. Mexican drug trafficking organizations, which also traffic methamphetamine and cocaine, remain the primary source for black tar heroin in Washington. Black tar heroin is produced in Mexico and transported from distribution cities in southern California directly to western and eastern Washington.
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.
Living in Washington 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 Washington, 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.
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, 7,260 people admitted for treatment, 77.3% or 5,612 relapsed.
