The drug abuse situation in Maine is a big one with marijuana being on the top of the list according to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. That drug is not the only problem in Maine, however; cocaine, heroin, and pharmaceutical drugs all contribute to the state’s substance abuse problem. Maine’s idealistic location provides smugglers ample opportunity with close to 3,500 miles of shoreline and 228 miles of coastline. The drugs are easily transported through the state thanks to Interstate 95.

Cocaine as stated by the National Institute on Drug Abuse is a dangerous in that it can be sold in its purest form as powder or it can be cooked into rock form called crack cocaine. Cocaine is generally trafficked through the state where local suppliers pick up their quantities for selling. While this happens in the cities of Maine, the drug can also be smuggled in from states as far away as New York, Florida and New Jersey. Crack cocaine is cooked locally and then distributed throughout the state. The use of crack cocaine is increasing in the state of Maine.

Pharmaceutical drugs are on the rise in Maine. Their easy availability and potent formulas are highly sought after. Methadone and Oxycodone products like Percocet and Oxycontin are quite popular. These drugs can be easily smuggled into Maine by way of Canadian pharmaceuticals. The scary part is that the drugs can be obtained right there in the state by multiple doctor visits, forged prescriptions, and even internet orders.

Drug abuse in Maine also includes marijuana. The state has tough drug laws on marijuana causing users to travel in order to buy the drug. The drug is grown in indoors although the high-grade marijuana is typically smuggled in from Canada. Ecstasy is a drug that is common at raves, after hour parties and clubs. It has made its way into the Maine party scene. Crystal meth is a drug that is available in Maine, but is not heavily abused by the residents; however, Aroostook County is the one being hit the hardest with crystal meth drug abuse. Most of the substance abuse reported because of meth is truck drivers that are looking to stay awake.

Substance abuse in Maine is one that allows its residents to use marijuana for medical purposes, but also knows that the drug use does not stop there. Unfortunately, drug rehabs exist for a reason and substance abuse can start at an early age, which normally spirals out of control. Families may even be unaware that their teenagers are participating in all night parties that include binge drinking and pills to keep them going all night long.

Drug rehabs exist for all addictions ranging from alcohol to heroin to cocaine and beyond. Those facilities can even help those who also suffer eating disorders and mental health issues plus substance abuse. Treatment for drug and alcohol abuse is not just a one-day treatment and inpatient stays may be required to achieve full sobriety.

Drug and alcohol programs are there for every financial situation.
