Drug Rehab Indiana
Drug and alcohol addiction in Indiana has been a major concern and there is an increasing need for quality drug rehab programs in the state. Sometimes, just choosing the right Indiana drug rehabilitation center can appear to be a daunting task. First, there are various kinds of drug treatment programs, which can include inpatient, outpatient, long term, and short term treatment, and each facility may offer different types of treatment, and it can become confusing. The main goal in the treatment of drug addiction should always be the same; to help the addict come to a place where they are able to choose sobriety over substance abuse. Getting to that goal can be accomplished in a variety of different ways depending on the drug treatment methods that are administered to treat the drug addiction. Because every person is unique, the Indiana drug rehab facility that will be the most effective is the treatment plan which includes components that target the personal needs of the individual.
The insidious nature of a drug addiction can be that by the time that a person is ready to admit that they have a problem, the substance abuse may have already taken a devastating toll on an individual. Beyond the negative effects that a drug addiction has on relationships, there can also be a huge negative impact on society. The costs that are directly related to drug addiction in the state of Indiana can include the costs to the state for additional law enforcement, drug rehabilitation, and most importantly, the cost in terms of human lives.

Indiana Drug Information and Drug Trafficking
Drug information on the state of Indiana reveals that it is an active drug trafficking and distribution area. The northern part of Indiana lies on Lake Michigan, which is a major waterway within the St. Lawrence Seaway system providing international shipping for all sections of the Midwest. Seven interstate highway systems and 20 U.S. highways provide interstate and intrastate links for drug trafficking, especially with the southwest border and California. Highway (automobile and trucking) and airline trafficking are the primary means of drug importation, with busing systems as a secondary means. Mexican criminal groups are the primary wholesale distributors of marijuana, powdered cocaine, and methamphetamine within Indiana.
In Indiana, powdered cocaine is readily available and crack cocaine is primarily available within the urban areas. Most of the heavily populated areas continue to experience shootings and other acts of violence over drug debts. Mexican trafficking organizations distribute cocaine to Caucasian, African American, and other Hispanic groups.
Heroin is not readily available in central and southern Indiana. In northern Indiana, Southeast Asian white heroin has decreased and has been replaced by Mexican brown and black tar heroin. Heroin abusers range in age from teenagers to older adults. Hispanic drug trafficking organizations transport and distribute Mexican heroin throughout Indiana.
The influx of methamphetamine into Indiana has increased from year to year. Mexican trafficking organizations are transporting from 15 to 25 pounds at a time with a purity level ranging from 25 to 85 percent. The Mexican organizations are noted for cutting the product two or three times before distribution. Meth is manufactured in Mexico or the southwestern states and transported into Indiana.
The local methamphetamine distributors operating small toxic labs sell a better quality product with a purity of 30 to 40 percent, but do not produce large enough quantities to support wholesale distribution. The small individual operations of independent entrepreneurs produce enough methamphetamine for their own use and that of their friends. They may also sell small amounts. These small toxic labs, usually constructed in barns or residential homes, do not produce enough for retail distribution.
Indiana drug information reports that the abuse of club drugs such as Ecstasy (MDMA), GHB, Ketamine, and LSD is not a significant problem. There have been small seizures of 20 to 30 pill quantities. The MDMA is produced in foreign countries and smuggled into port cities of the United Stated and eventually to Indiana. However, drug information on Indiana shows that there has been a slight increase in liquid PCP.
Marijuana abuse remains a significant problem within Indiana. Marijuana produced in Mexico is transported and distributed by Mexican organizations. Transportation is usually by tractor-trailers in multi-hundred pound quantities. Locally produced marijuana is cultivated throughout Indiana at indoor and outdoor grow sites. The outdoor sites are usually located in farm fields, wooded areas, National Forests, public lands, or near riverbanks. Indoor grows are located in private residences or large barn-type building on private land.
As a result of DEA's Domestic Cannabis Eradication/Suppression Program, the Indiana State Police eradicated 220,000,000 plants growing wild in northern Indiana.
Drug information on other drugs reports that the diversion of over-the-counter pseudoephedrine products is a major contributor to clandestine methamphetamine manufacturing. Retail stores, a source of pseudoephedrine for clandestine manufacturers, monitor inappropriate retail level purchases by individuals.
Additionally, prescription drug abuse is a problem in the state and OxyContin continues to be a threat. Hydrococone and benzodiazepines remain the primary pharmaceutical drugs abused throughout the state of Indiana. In 2004, the state of Indiana will be expanding the prescription-monitoring program to include Schedule II to Schedule V pharmaceutical controlled substances.
