Drug Rehab Maine

Drug addiction is steadily on the rise in the state of Maine, which is creating the need for more quality drug rehab centers in the state. When an individual has admitted to having a drug addiction, the situation should be addressed immediately and drug rehabilitation should be administered as soon as possible. The process of selecting a Maine drug rehab program for the treatment of a drug addiction can seem to be a daunting task, because of the many different types of programs that are currently available. These various options can include short term, outpatient, inpatient and long term, and if an individual is not familiar with the meaning of these terms, they can often be confused about what drug rehab option to choose for the treatment of their drug addiction. Short term outpatient care generally requires that the individual that is attending the drug rehab for their drug or alcohol addiction visits the treatment center on various days at specific times and reside at home during this process. Very few individuals that are coming out of a long term drug addiction can experience a solid recovery with such a minimum level of care. Long term inpatient drug rehab care is generally administered in a highly structured environment and the individual resides at the treatment center; this type of care is much more conducive to successful long term drug recovery. The latest government research by The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) has concluded that long term inpatient care that lasts for a period of at least three months is by far been reported to be the most successful type of substance abuse treatment.

There are many different factors that will need to be considered in choosing a quality drug rehab program in the state of Maine for the treatment of drug addiction. The most important thing to inquire about is the success rate of the drug rehab center in previously treating cases of drug addiction. Drug rehab facility costs will also help to determine what treatment option is chosen, although maintaining a drug addiction can also be quite costly. By the time an addict agrees to get help in the form of drug treatment for their drug addiction, they may often have already lost a great deal. Aside from the material losses, many personal relationships tend to suffer dramatically when a drug addiction is present. Additionally, the individual that is addicted to drugs will suffer from poor self esteem, which can include feelings of worthlessness, shame and guilt. The reason for these feelings is simple; because deep down the individual knows that what they are doing is wrong. This knowledge creates a contradiction between the individual's values and their current actions, causing them to experience a sense of hopelessness.

Maine Drug Information and Drug Trafficking

Drug information sources report that the primary drug of abuse in Maine is marijuana. It is both locally grown and imported from Canada, Massachusetts, and New York. The use and availability of cocaine, heroin, and diverted pharmaceuticals continues to increase. Methamphetamine remains a minor concern, but significant potential exists for production and distribution in the state. Interstate 95 provides an important north-south transportation route for drug traffickers travelling most frequently to sources of drug supply in several northeastern Massachusetts cities. Additionally, Maine's 228 miles of coastline and 3,478 miles of shoreline offer ample opportunities for maritime smugglers.

Cocaine is available throughout the state in fractional-ounce to kilogram quantities. Residents, primarily Caucasians, have historically utilized Interstate 95 in passenger vehicles to meet cocaine suppliers, generally Dominican violators based in Lawrence, Lowell, and Lynn, MA. The popularity of crack cocaine continues to increase in southern and central Maine communities, with Biddeford and Lewiston serving as the main distribution points for dealers.

Massachusetts-based Dominican traffickers continue to be the primary suppliers of high quality heroin to the Maine distributors. These distributors, who typically transport the drug in passenger vehicles, provide for an increasing availability of heroin in the state. While use is more prevalent in southern communities, it is also encountered in coastal and Canadian-border communities and has spread into rural and remote areas. Heroin abuse has increased, particularly among younger teenagers in Bridgeton, Rockland, Penobscot, and York counties.

Meth has the potential to become a major drug problem in Maine and abuse and availability have increased in Aroostook County. Low quality methamphetamine is often express-mailed into the state from California and the southwestern states. Trafficking groups supplying methamphetamine to the state generally are connected to outlaw motorcycle clubs or are members of "the rave set." The seized methamphetamine labs serve as a reminder that Maine's size and predominantly rural population create an ideal environment for large-scale methamphetamine manufacturing. Law enforcement officials in southern Maine have noticed a small increase in the use of MDMA, which continues to be associated with rave parties and the student population.

Marijuana, historically the illicit drug of choice in the state, is plentiful and readily available. Year-round indoor grows are common, but high grade marijuana cultivated in Canada has been smuggled over the border. Commercial grade marijuana is often obtained from middlemen in the southern New England states and New York. Hashish is available sporadically in small quantities, but the increasing popularity of hashish in Canada may change the situation in Maine. Traffickers have moved hashish and hash oil through Maine and into Canada.

Caucasian traffickers typically supply locally grown marijuana as well as marijuana shipped from the southwest border and Canada. Shipments ranging from 15 to 500 pounds typically enter the state via Interstate 95 in automobiles, campers, rental trucks, and tractor-trailers. Motorcycle groups continue to control much of the marijuana distribution in Maine, using associates to distribute approximately 300 to 500 pounds monthly.

Maine has a number of statutes related to marijuana possession, cultivation, trafficking, therapeutic research programs, paraphernalia, illegal importation, and asset forfeiture. These laws are often cited as the reason that Maine residents must travel to obtain their illicit drugs from out-of-state traffickers wary of the state's tough drug laws.

PCP purchased in Boston, MA is available in the southern portion of the state; LSD, available in gelcap form, is abused by young students; and psilocybin mushrooms, most often obtained from commercially available cultivation kits, are available in Maine. The state continues to experience an increase in the availability of diverted pharmaceuticals. Oxycodone products such as Percocet, Roxicet, and OxyContin are readily available. Dilaudid is found in Washington County, including the city of Calais.

Many instances of doctor shopping schemes, falsified prescriptions, and pharmacy robberies of OxyContin have been experienced in Lincoln County and the Portland area. Diverted Canadian pharmaceuticals also are being smuggled into Maine.
