Drug Rehab Idaho
The growing drug addiction problem in Idaho has created a greater need for more quality drug rehab programs. Most people cannot successfully overcome drug addiction without the professional assistance of a drug rehab facility, because it is such a difficult problem to overcome. Just sorting out the descriptions of the various kinds of treatment such as residential, inpatient, outpatient, short term or holistic treatment, can all be terms that individuals seeking drug rehabilitation in Idaho may not be familiar with. In order to get the information that is needed, having the assistance of a counselor at a drug rehabilitation facility can be extremely beneficial to an individual that is in the process of choosing a treatment center for their drug addiction. In order to be effective, an Idaho drug rehab must include all of the various treatment components that are necessary in order to help an individual, long term in breaking free from the grips of drug addiction.
In an Idaho drug rehab program, the first step in treatment for drug addiction is the detox process, which is necessary before all of the other aspects of the substance abuse problem can be readily addressed, such as counseling. When an individual is going through the detoxification process, they will experience withdrawal symptoms that can be extremely uncomfortable; the staff at a quality Idaho drug rehab will know how to offer support and help to alleviate some of this discomfort. When a person chooses to go through detox at an inpatient Idaho drug rehab, they will have staff that is available around the clock to assist them until the worst symptoms has passed. It is at this point that they can begin to see clearly enough to complete the other components in the drug rehab program and the real healing from drug addiction can begin to take root. This portion of the drug rehabilitation usually includes some form of counseling, whether it be one on one or in a group setting, this can be the most important component of the treatment process.
By the time an individual wakes up and acknowledges the negative effects that their drug abuse has created, it has often taken a toll on virtually every aspect of their lives. Beyond the negative effects that any type of a drug addiction can have on relationships, what can take place in regard to an addicts self esteem can be even more damaging to the individuals spirit. Drug addiction may appear to totally destroy an individual's life; but their redeeming qualities can be restored with the help of a treatment team at a quality drug rehabilitation program. Surrendering to the treatment process is all that is required for an individual to begin to break free from drug addiction.

Idaho Drug Information and Drug Trafficking
Idaho drug trafficking reports show that Mexican national poly-drug organizations control most drug trafficking organizations in the state. These reports also show that methamphetamine, produced in and outside the region, is widely available. Drug information regarding drug trafficking in Idaho indicates that controlled substances are smuggled into the state via air and land routes from southwest border-states and Mexico. Additionally, marijuana and "club drugs" are common in Idaho.
Cocaine is readily available throughout the state, but is largely limited to affluent users. Because of its lower price and higher purity, methamphetamine has replaced cocaine as the drug of choice. Mexican black tar and brown heroin is readily available in Idaho. It is commonly smuggled into the state in hidden compartments in vehicles. Increasingly heroin is moved into the state via air transport from the southwestern states of the United States.
Meth is one of the greatest drug threats in Idaho as it has a substantial effect on all elements of the state's society. Most methamphetamine is manufactured elsewhere, primarily in Mexico, California, and other southwest border states. When large quantities of meth are seized in northern Idaho, the source is usually from the Yakima Valley, WA area.
Idaho has experienced a dramatic decrease in methamphetamine labs which law enforcement agencies attribute to better sentencing of violators found guilty of manufacturing the drug. As a result of a decrease in lab seizures, local Hispanic distributors have increased distribution of methamphetamine smuggled into the state. Crystal methamphetamine, often 100 percent pure, is increasing in availability in the state. Source areas for this type of methamphetamine include California and Nevada.
Club drugs, particularly MDMA (methylene-dioxy-methamphetamine) (also known as ecstasy), LSD, and ketamine are popular among young adults and are sold at local rave parties. The Seattle, Washington area is the source of most MDMA available in Idaho. Synthetic drugs, uncommon in other areas of the division, such as 2C-B, DET (a drug that imitates a psychotic state for psychological/medical experiments) and SMeo DIPT, a.k.a. "Foxy" and "Foxy Methoxy" have appeared in the Boise rave scene. The Seattle area is the source of most MDMA available in Idaho.
Marijuana abuse in Idaho is second only to the state's meth abuse problem. Marijuana cultivation, both indoor and outdoor, is widespread. Mexican marijuana is also available, but is not preferred.
The most commonly abused pharmaceutical drugs encountered in the state are hydrocodone and benzodiazepines. Soma and its generic equivalent are commonly abused in combination with hydrocodone. The prescription drug OxyContin is a growing problem in northern Idaho as it is more prevalent and easier to buy. The largest increase of OxyContin prescriptions has occurred in pain-management medical specialty clinics. Methadone is frequently utilized for pain management, because it is less expensive than other Schedule II analgesics.
