Drug Rehab Michigan (cont..)
Over 10,005 individuals began Michigan drug rehab programs for addiction to cocaine in 2005. This number has remained fairly consistent over the last few years; 10,384 in 2003 and 10,392 in 2004. Drug trafficking organizations in areas like the Southwest Border States, New York, L.A. and Miami control their local groups in metropolitan areas of Michigan, directing the sale and distribution of the drug throughout the state. Law enforcement places these groups at the top of their lists to stop for their criminal activities and profoundly negative effects on the state. Cocaine found in the state is of very high quality and cocaine remains a major concern for the state. 292 kilos of cocaine were seized in the state in 2006.
The number of admissions to Michigan drug rehabs for heroin abuse has remained consistent in recent years as well; 7,677 in 2003, 7,700 in 2004 and 7,554 in 2005. This speaks to the fact that heroin has been a significant drug-related threat to Michigan for some time. It comes from all over the globe and is available in the metropolitan areas of the state. South American, Mexican and African heroin are smuggled into Michigan in large measure. South American heroin is the chief variety seen in areas like Detroit, but Southeast and Southwest Asian heroin can be found in these areas as well. A significant amount of the heroin smuggled into the state is intended for sale in Detroit. But the city is just a stop along the way for some heroin destined ultimately for other parts of the state and Ohio. 2006 federal drug seizures in Michigan resulted in the confiscation of 12 kilos of heroin.

Approximately 3,785 admissions to Michigan drug rehab programs in 2005 were for the abuse of prescription, club or other drugs. The non-medical use of OxyContin is on the rise in Michigan. Vicodin and methadone are also commonly abused pharmaceuticals in Michigan. Abusers of these drugs use a variety of means to obtain them; theft from pharmacies, medical facilities or private homes, unethical healthcare professionals sell these drugs illegally, individuals go from doctor to doctor to obtain numerous prescriptions (called “doctor shopping”), and prescriptions are often forged. The number of offenses for OxyContin abuse double from 2002 to 2003, a clear indication that the non-medical use of and, for many, the ultimate addiction to these drugs is increasing. Ecstasy is the primary club drug of concern for Michigan. The drug is smuggled into the state by very organized groups from locations as diverse as New York City, the Netherlands and Canada. Club drugs are common on college campuses and in other areas where young adults gather. 1,609,517 dosage units of ecstasy (over 65 kilos) were confiscated in Michigan in 2006.
