Connecticut Drug and Alcohol Treatment

The state of Connecticut was once looked upon as one that had minimal drug use. Fast-forward 20 years later and today, Connecticut has a major drug problem and it is continually getting worse, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Cocaine is the number one drug of choice and its rock form, crack, is now very popular. Heroin abuse is also quite common in Connecticut.

Connecticut’s location is ideal for drug trafficking. Interstate 91 and 95 are gateways to Northern Canada and the northeastern part of the United States. The state has Mexican drug lords distributing the number one drug, cocaine, from its Columbian dealers and makes its way into the state from New York City. With cocaine being on top, it is easy to see why addicts would want more at a cheaper price. For this reason and its easy accessibility crack cocaine has gained popularity.

A close second for substance abuse in Connecticut is heroin. This drug is also easy to get and cheaper than cocaine. The high is very strong and that is what keeps the addicts coming back. Heroin is brought from New York City to Connecticut although its original ties take it back to Columbia. When drugs of any kind are smuggled in, they might be hidden in cars and transporting heroin is no different.

Teens and young adults are often the targets of substance abuse and are the ones that seek drug rehab. It seems like in almost every state that methamphetamine abuse is on the rise and in Connecticut that is no different. Meth or ice, as it is commonly called, is easy for teenagers to get, and gives the impression of an everlasting good time at parties or clubs. Other club drugs are popular too. Those include MDMA or Ecstasy and others like GHB.

It seems that the easiest drug to come by and the one that is mostly used is marijuana. In New Haven, homegrown plants are growing like weeds, and that is not meant to be taken as funny. Pharmaceutical drugs are popular everywhere and they include Oxycontin, Ritalin, and Xanax. These drugs are available through online shopping, visiting several different doctors, and even creating fake prescriptions.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration wants all people to be aware of substance abuse and its effect on the individual as well as that person’s family. Connecticut offers addicts inpatient and outpatient drug and alcohol programs. The state is on its way to passing legislation for the use of marijuana for medical purposes. Inpatient treatment for drug and alcohol abuse is a far more extensive program than that of an outpatient program. Inpatient drug rehabs can offer more personal counseling time and a deeper connection with each patient.

Drug and alcohol treatment and recovery centers are just the beginning for a new life for someone who is suffering from substance abuse. Families need help too so if you someone that is suffering get them help today. It could be the very best thing that you can do for someone.
