Arizona Detox Centers
There are close to a dozen Arizona detox facilities available for the public, most of them located in Tucson and Phoenix but some in smaller cities. Some of them are overcrowded and some simply offer archaic ineffective treatment protocol, that is one of the reason Arizona citizens often fly to California seeking additional opiate detox options.
Opioid Addiction in Arizona
Over the last decade, there has been a significant increase in the number of poisoning deaths in the U.S. and a large chunk of them can be attributed to prescription opioid painkillers. Drugs such as OxyContin, morphine and Vicodin have become so prevalent on the black market that many states have taken steps to curb illegal diversion. Arizona is one of many states to take part in the state prescription drug-monitoring program. This is a database that allows prescribing authorities such as doctors and pharmacists to share information about patients’ prescription drug histories. It aims to point out and deter instances of drug abuse and diversion and encourage treatment for people addicted to these controlled substances. Information is shared on the database in an effort to cut down on doctor shopping, when patients try to secure more than one supply of a drug.
Arizona shares a 350-mile border with Mexico, much of it made up of sparsely populated desert and mountainous regions. Because of this, Arizona is a key target for smugglers. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency says heroin is the least abused drug in Arizona but is often the go-to drug for people who can’t get OxyContin. The agency says this state has seen a steady increase in OxyContin abuse cases. OxyContin, like heroin, is an opiate agonist with a high potential to lead to misuse, abuse and addiction. The DEA says trends show that high school students in the Phoenix area often switch to heroin when they can’t access OxyContin. According to the agency, abuse of products containing oxycodone (OxyContin and Percocet) and hydrocodone (Vicodin, Norco and Lortab) are serious problems in Arizona. This trend is seen throughout the U.S. as pharmaceutical diversion increases through Internet sales, forged prescriptions, doctor shopping, employee theft and illegal distribution by health care workers. In 2008, methadone clinics in Arizona reported to the DEA that more than half of all patients seeking addiction treatment had problems with pharmaceutical controlled substances, especially opiates.<f/p>
Heroin flows through the border of Arizona and Mexico
In 2016 Customs and Border Patrol agents seized more than 930 pounds of heroin in Arizona, that amount has been reported to be almost one-third of all heroin seized in the entire southern border. The sad part of the story is the officials acknowledge that this is a subtle fraction of what the heroin that comes into the US hidden in cars, suitcases, or even strapped to the bodies of Mexicans and Americans traffickers.
Beyond Arizona Detox
Staying in your home city when you are going through detox is not always the best choice. The familiar surroundings and possible circumstances can make the possibility of relapse, much greater. If you’re considering the best detox options and you have the resources, the location should not be a deterrent. There are many private, effective and exclusive treatment options outside Arizona. Wherever you decide to get help for your opioid dependence, the first step is researching what is available and making the right choice for you!
