Drug Rehab Arizona

Choosing a drug rehab program in Arizona to get treatment for a drug addiction can be a difficult process. Few people really know what to look for in choosing a drug treatment facility. Recently, the number of individuals in Arizona currently having problems with drug addiction has increased dramatically, according to Arizona drug treatment statistics. The various drug treatment options that are available in Arizona can include holistic drug rehabs, inpatient, outpatient, long-term or short stay options. The basic components of these Arizona drug rehab programs are generally similar and may include detox, counseling, relapse prevention and some form of aftercare treatment. A person needs to ask specific questions such as what is included in the costs of the Arizona drug rehab program, the length of the program, and most importantly, the long term success rate statistics of the drug rehabilitation center. The majority of the professionals in the field of substance abuse highly recommend long term residential treatment for the best possible results in drug recovery, because this type of drug treatment has been shown to be much more effective. An individual that is in a long term residential drug rehab facility has the luxury of being away from the daily stressors of life and is able to completely focus on their treatment program. Costs may also be one of the main factors, but cost alone should never determine your choice of a drug rehab program. When an individual is able to find the right treatment fit, the person can begin the process of finally becoming free from addiction, which can truly be priceless.

By the time an individual that is addicted to drugs has agreed to commit to an Arizona drug rehab program, the negative effects of their drug use may already have taken a substantial toll in every area of their lives. Aside from the physical damage that drug use can cause, the area that is more heavily damaged is their personal viewpoint of themselves. There is always damage to an individual's self-esteem in long term drug addiction as the feelings of worthlessness, hopelessness, shame and guilt increase. This happens because a person subconsciously realizes that abusing drugs or alcohol is a destructive thing to do, but they continue to do so in spite of this knowledge. This scenario creates a major contradiction between the person's internal values and their current actions, and causes them to feel worse about their drug addiction. The nature of addiction is that an individual puts the craving for drugs above everything else. Unless an individual chooses to seek drug treatment, they risk the loss of their livelihood and can cause severe damage to their personal relationships. As a person seeks deeper and deeper into drug addiction, they have greater difficulty in expressing their needs and the world around them will slowly become meaningless.

Most addicts are not able to be free of their drug addiction without the professional support of a drug rehabilitation program. It is difficult for a person to finally agree that they have allowed a substance to take over their lives and hold their every thought hostage. This is the time when an individual needs the support of their friends and loved ones to help them to secure the treatment that they need to be free from the prison of drug addiction. Often, the addict needs assistance in making calls to gather the information they need in order to choose an Arizona drug rehab that is uniquely suited to treat their particular drug or alcohol addiction. When an individual is ready to seek treatment, this is the time to hold their hand and guide them in finding just the right drug rehab facility to help them to achieve their goal of sobriety. It is commonly recommended if at all possible, that an individual chooses an Arizona drug rehab that is a safe distance away from the environment where the individual was active in their drug addiction to help to ensure their successful drug recovery. When an individual is in close proximity to the familiar triggers that they associate with their prior drug use, such as passing the pharmacy where they filled their prescriptions for pain pills, it often weakens their resolve, and increases the likelihood of a drug relapse.

Arizona Drug Information and Drug Trafficking

Arizona is known for having severe drug trafficking problems. The state is directly north of the Mexican State of Sonora, a major trafficker stronghold. Along the 350 miles of border are three principal ports of entry (Nogales, Douglas, and San Luis) and three secondary ports of entry (Lukeville, Sasabe, and Naco).

Most of Arizona's border area consists of inhospitable desert and steep mountain ranges, which are sparsely populated, infrequently patrolled by law enforcement, and ideal for drug trafficking. Arizona serves primarily as a drug importation and transshipment state. Drug smuggling and trafficking are dominated by major Mexican trafficking organizations. These groups are poly-drug organizations smuggling cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamine, heroin and precursor chemicals.

Cocaine is readily available throughout Arizona while crack is readily available in Arizona's inner cities and in some smaller communities. Powder cocaine retail prices average $85-$130/gram and crack retails for an average price of $10-$20/rock.

The two major cities known for cocaine drug trafficking are Phoenix and Tucson. These metropolitan areas are major transshipment points for cocaine distribution from Arizona throughout the United States. Cocaine is shipped from Colombia by air, land and sea to controlled regions in Mexico, where it is then transported to staging areas near the 370 mile Arizona/Mexico border.

Transportation groups aligned with the major Mexican cartels smuggle the cocaine into Arizona typically utilizing commercial trucks, private vehicles, animal caravans and backpackers. Multi-ton quantities of cocaine are smuggled across the border on a regular basis through heavily trafficked Ports of Entry, as well as between these Ports.

In Arizona, the cocaine is usually wrapped in cellophane and electrical tape or duct tape, and secreted in elaborate compartments built into the vehicles to include these areas: gas tank, dashboard, bumper, firewall, rocker/quarter panels, driveshaft, wheel well, battery, under and within seats, under floor, etc. Traffickers utilize the vast irregular terrain of southern Arizona and lack of adequate border surveillance by law enforcement in this area to their advantage in the movement of cocaine to staging areas.

Although heroin is the least abused of all drugs in Arizona, the availability of heroin continues to increase as the demand and distribution networks throughout the U.S. increases. Mexican black tar heroin is the predominant type of heroin found in Arizona.

Mexican black tar heroin along with brown powder heroin continue to be smuggled into Arizona both through and between the Ports of Entry. A National Drug Intelligence Center (NDIC) study conducted in Phoenix during 2003 revealed black tar heroin is the predominant form of heroin abused in the metropolitan area and users are primarily Caucasian and Hispanic.

Arizona sees two types of meth, Mexican-produced and locally produced methamphetamine. Mexican-produced methamphetamine is the most predominant type encountered in the state and is frequently smuggled across the Southwest Border (SWB) where it transits through Arizona. The locally produced methamphetamine originates from independently owned and operated laboratories that are responsible for yielding small quantities for local consumption.

Arizona serves as a major distribution hub, staging area, and drug trafficking transshipment point for Mexican methamphetamine smuggled across the SWB destined for domestic cities throughout the U.S., specifically Midwest cities.

When it comes to Club Drugs, The Phoenix Division participated in an investigation named "Operation X-Out" which focused on identifying and dismantling organizations that were producing and distributing club and predatory drugs. Intelligence gathered throughout this investigation found people dealing ecstasy, cocaine, marijuana, crack cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin and prescription drugs out of numerous bars and clubs.

In Arizona, ecstasy tablets bearing the logos of Yellow Star, Green Spade, Blue Rabbits, and Blue Squirrels have been encountered. While LSD remains available throughout most of Arizona, law enforcement agencies report they rarely encounter mushrooms on the street.

Marijuana remains widely available in quantities up to multi-hundred pounds packaged for delivery. The Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement routinely seize hundred pound quantities of marijuana at the Ports of Entry as well as abandoned in remote sites along the border. The use of passenger vehicles in drug trafficking marijuana across the border is sometimes linked to corrupt U. S. and Mexican officials working as inspectors at the Ports.

A large portion of marijuana smuggled into the United States through Arizona is delivered by individuals known as "mules" who are paid to carry loads on their backs through remote and often rugged wilderness areas. Backpacks are designed from burlap bags used to carry potatoes and sugar, with ropes attached so the bags can be carried over the shoulders. Horses are also used to carry hundred pound loads.

Large scale marijuana traffickers utilize tractor-trailers as well as refrigerated utility trailers to transport loads through the Ports. Tucson and Phoenix are commonly used as stash locations until the loads are ready to be sent to their final destination.

In Phoenix, Arizona methadone clinics estimate that approximately 15 percent of the drug addiction treatment is attributed to pharmaceutical controlled substances. The Phoenix Division continues to find that Vicodin, Lortab and other hydrocodone products; Percocet; OxyContin and other oxycodone products; benzodiazepines; and codeine products are the most abused pharmaceutical controlled substances in Arizona.

Arizona has seen the use of Soma in combination with other analgesic controlled substances; Ultran (tramadol) and Nubain continue to be highly abused. The primary methods of diversion are prescription fraud through forgeries, bogus call-ins, and doctor-shoppers. The Phoenix Division continues to investigate thefts in-transit to pharmacies and distributors, as well as reports of thefts by employees and robberies of pharmacies. Hydrocodone, oxycodone, and benzodiazepene products continue to comprise the majority of prescription controlled drugs abused in Arizona. Arizona has begun to see organized groups utilizing computer-generated prescriptions to obtain OxyContin for both personal abuse and distribution for profit.

Prescription controlled drugs from Mexico are frequently smuggled into Arizona, and internet shipments of controlled substances from foreign source websites is on-going. Internet websites with prescriptions shipped from U.S. pharmacies are also being investigated by the Phoenix DO Diversion Group in conjunction with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Arizona and Idaho Medical Boards; and the Arizona Pharmacy Board.
