Drug Rehab Ohio
According to the most recent government statistics that are available for Ohio, drug addiction is increasingly becoming a more serious threat in the state; thus increasing the need for quality drug rehabilitation programs. An Ohio drug rehab can help an addict that is in need of treatment to overcome their drug addiction. Often times, by the time an individual reaches out for the professional help that is available from a drug rehab center, they have already suffered many devastating losses due to their drug addiction problem. When an individual does make the decision to finally reach for help; this is the time for their loved ones to rally around them and assist them in finding an Ohio drug rehab facility, which would be most suitable for their particular circumstances.
Choosing an Ohio drug rehab center for drug addiction can be a difficult process; but it is a worthwhile endeavor. There are so many different types of treatment which include inpatient, outpatient, short term and long term treatment for substance abuse. In an Ohio outpatient drug rehab, the individual that is being treated for a drug addiction usually goes to the treatment facility on various days for sessions that last a specific number of hours; very few people that have just recently struggled with a moderate to severe substance abuse problem can flourish with such a limited amount of care. Many individuals with a substance abuse problem will choose a local Ohio drug rehab facility in order to remain close to home, but often times this decision can lead to a drug relapse. Very few individuals in the primary stages of abstinence can fully reap the benefits from treatment when the drug rehab center is located so close to the place where they were actively engaged in substance abuse. In a residential drug rehab program, the individual lives at the center full time and they are able to fully immerse themselves into the treatment process that is available, without any distractions. The National Institute for Drug Abuse (NIDA) studies has consistently reported that the best course of treatment for a drug addiction problem is long term inpatient drug rehabilitation that lasts a minimum of 3 months.
The negative effects of drug addiction can have devastating effects on the loved ones that are close to the individual that is struggling with the problem. Drug addiction consistently wreaks havoc on relationships and can cause job related problems, also. Drug addiction also commonly has a negative impact on the addict's physical and mental health. If an individual does not seek the immediate help of an Ohio drug rehab center, they may continue to suffer many losses in relation to their active substance abuse status. The only way that an individual with a drug addiction can avoid these dire consequences, is to locate a drug rehabilitation program that has a successful history in treating drug addiction. In order for the Ohio drug rehab center to design an unique treatment program to best suit the individual, information in regards to the drug or alcohol addiction can be shared during the initial assessment; this data will go a long way in helping to determine what type of treatment should be readily administered. It is important to have a sense of urgency in choosing an Ohio drug rehab program; as it is all too common for an addict to minimize their drug problem if they have too much time to contemplate their decision. When you are dealing with something as serious as a drug addiction, procrastination can sometimes have devastating consequences, as in the case of a fatal overdose.

Ohio Drug Information and Drug Trafficking
Drug information resources in Ohio share that the primary drug threat in Ohio is powder and crack cocaine. The most violent crimes in the state are attributed to its distribution and abuse. Also, the rising availability of high-purity, low cost heroin is creating a large user population with a greater physical risk to users, who are younger than ever before.
In the northern Ohio region, South American and Mexican black tar heroin are prevalent, while in the southern Ohio region, Mexican black tar heroin is predominant. Marijuana remains the most abused drug in the state. Ohio is a source area for marijuana cultivation, as well as a distribution point for Mexican marijuana from the southwest border. Club drugs and MDMA (ecstasy) are also growing in popularity in urban areas. Meanwhile, methamphetamine manufacturing and use are increasing, but has not reached the levels of other states in the Midwest.
In Ohio, cocaine and crack combined constitute the greatest drug threat in the state. Cocaine is transported into Ohio from the southwest border, including California and Texas, as well as from Miami, Florida and New York City. Detroit, Michigan and Chicago, Illinois serve as transshipment points and distribution centers for cocaine shipped from the southwest border and transported throughout Ohio.
Mexican and Dominican criminal groups and to a lesser extent other ethnic criminal groups are the principal transporters and wholesale distributors of multi-kilogram quantities of powdered cocaine in Ohio. Gram quantities sell between $100-$120, ounce quantities, $750-$1400, and kilograms $22,500 - $32,000. The purity levels for cocaine HCL range from 32.54 to 72.75 percent. Purity levels for crack cocaine range from 19 to 63.7 percent. The Ohio Department of Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services data indicates that the number of treatment admissions for cocaine abuse for 2003 was 9,879.

Heroin signature analysis indicates that South American and Mexican black tar are prevalent in the northern Ohio region. In the southern Ohio region Mexican black tar heroin is predominant. Dominican criminal groups control the distribution of South American heroin, while Mexican criminal groups control the distribution of Mexican black tar heroin.
Ohio drug trafficking sources revel that at the retail-level, African-American, Dominican, and Mexican criminal groups are involved in heroin distribution. Heroin is shipped into Ohio from major distribution centers such as Chicago, Detroit, New York and various cities along the southwest border. Heroin is also transported on commercial airline flights into Ohio.
Wholesalers use major Ohio cities such as Cleveland, Cincinnati, Columbus, and Toledo as distribution centers for smaller cities in and outside the state. Gram quantities sell between $140-$250 an ounce in quantities worth $2400-$7000. The purity levels range from 23.5 to 57 percent.

Local independent criminal groups, outlaw motorcycle gangs (OMG's) and, to a lesser extent, Mexican criminal groups are primarily responsible for shipping methamphetamine into and distributing it throughout Ohio. Methamphetamine is also shipped into Ohio predominantly through mail and package delivery services.
Methamphetamine distribution has also increased at "Raves" and on college campuses in Ohio. Purity levels range from 7.425 to 100 percent. Amphetamine/methamphetamine abuse in Ohio is prevalent and comparative to rates of abuse in other states in the region.

Club Drugs are growing in popularity among young adults and juveniles, particularly in most urban areas of the state where "Rave" parties are also increasing. MDMA is the club drug of choice and represents the greatest future threat to Ohio's youth.
Most MDMA available in Ohio is produced outside the United States, typically in laboratories in the Netherlands and Belgium and transported through express mail services and by couriers on commercial airlines through distribution centers such as Miami, New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. MDMA also reaches Ohio from Canada via New York and is transported via the interstate highways and public modes of transportation. Most traffickers of MDMA are loose-knit independent entrepreneurs. Retail dealers typically are suburban teenagers, usually high school or college students. The pills are sold at an average of $25 per pill.
