Drug Addiction in Idaho

Like many parts of America, Idaho is largely a rural state with several gigantic metropolitan areas. However as many police departments and other law enforcement agencies have found, drug abuse does not just pass over an area because it does not have an inner-city area for gangs to traffic drugs in. Often the drug epidemics will take form in an entirely different way but even the most remote part of the Northwest has illicit and also prescription narcotics available that create pain and suffering for everyone involved.

Idaho, like many rural parts of America, has a booming problem with teen drug abuse. While cocaine or meth may often be to blame today it is more common to see serious addiction problems in a young person stemming from drugs that are far more easy to get: alcohol and prescription drugs. These drugs consistently addict people, drive them to overdose, and kill them more than all the other drugs in the country on a regular basis and they are legal and easy to get. Therefore in non-urban areas they are often even more deadly, particularly prescription drugs. Depressants such as Valium or Xanax, and opiate painkillers including Oxycodone, Vicodin, and Opana are incredibly dangerous, especially when used in a recreational setting and mixed with other substances.

Idaho also struggles with proper drug and alcohol abuse treatment. The situation is often very imbalanced because while there is always a demand for addiction treatment in urban areas such as Boise, many addicts living in rural areas have to travel sometimes even out of state to get addiction treatment. In many cases individual in Idaho are better of looking for a residential addiction treatment out of state where there will be no distractions once he/she will be removed from the environment that has originally caused him/her to abuse drugs.

While the supply of drugs, whatever they may be, cannot be stopped, addictions can. Therefore one of the most dangerous problems in America's drug addiction epidemic is the lack of education and availability of addiction treatment and recovery programs. Alcohol and prescription drugs are rarely given up quickly or easily. Someone hoping to kick a chronic addiction must not only weather detox but find an emotional and psychological balance for themselves to prevent relapses. It is extremely rare for someone to reach this point on their own and that is why professional addiction treatment is so important. Usually a 3 or 6 month residential addiction treatment program involving extensive addiction treatment counseling and therapy is needed to really instill the will needed to resist the eventual cravings and temptations that drag many people back into addiction.
