The United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA)
reports that Marijuana is a Schedule I substance under the Controlled
Substances Act (CSA). Schedule I drugs are classified as having a high
potential for abuse, no currently accepted medical use in treatment in
the United States, and a lack of accepted safety for use of the drug or
other substance under medical supervision.
Most of the marijuana entering the New York City area, and some upstate
regions, is of Mexican origin, smuggled primarily by auto/truck
transport from the Southwestern United States. Traffickers also use
containerized cargo and mail/parcel delivery services, such as Federal
Express and United Parcel Service to smuggle marijuana into New York.
Large shipments of marijuana also arrive in New York from Jamaica, and
are then distributed by Jamaican trafficking organizations. High-quality
hydroponic marijuana is smuggled into the U.S. from Canada, often via
the Akwesasne Mohawk Indian Reservation situated along the U.S./Canadian
border. Indoor marijuana grows are becoming more prevalent in the New
York City area. Some of these indoor grows are highly sophisticated and
are designed to yield substantial quantities of high potency marijuana.

Marijuana Abuse and Addiction
One thing is for certain, for a drug addict, the
dwindling spiral will continue on its downward path unless action is
taken. NOW is the time to do something before the addicted person winds
up in jail or dead of an accident or has moved on to heavier more
dangerous drugs. Unfortunately past failed attempts to overcome
addiction only further depress the individual so it comes as no surprise
that fear and hesitation will thwart offers for help.
In the state of New York there is an increased need for effective drug
and alcohol rehab and addiction treatment centers as drug and alcohol
use continues to escalate. Drug use erodes the quality of life not only
for the user, but for their families and communities. Marijuana
especially numbs the user and isolates them from family and friends.
Marriages and families are torn apart by mistrust, betrayal, fear and
anger. Careers are ruined; companies lose millions of dollars in lost
production time; cities and suburbs become degraded by the increased
crime and violence that goes with drug trafficking and drug addiction.
From city to suburb to rural life, drug and alcohol use and abuse
continues to undermine the quality of life for New York citizens. To do
nothing for the addict, should not be an option. Something can be done;
help is available.

Treatment Center Changes
Just in the state of New York, there are many different types of drug
rehab and treatment facilities. In the United States, there are
thousands of drug rehab and treatment centers. Of course the common goal
of all addiction treatment programs is to help end addiction for the
individual. In New York and across the United States, a variety of
techniques and methods are being used. Some of the well known treatment
methods in New York include the twelve step method, relapse prevention,
one-on-one counseling, drug rehabilitation, behavioral modification,
cognitive therapy, support groups, sober living, therapeutic
communities, AA , NA, inpatient, and outpatient drug rehab programs.
There are many types of treatment centers available in New York, so
making a decision can be difficult. Unfortunately, many uninformed
people in New York go from rehab to rehab looking for the one that is
right for them.
In New York, there are many attempts being made to meet the needs of drug
addicts, but statistics show success rates to be dismally low. What is
needed and wanted is a drug treatment which not only handles physical
addiction, but finds the underlying reasons why a person turns to drugs
in order to free the person forever. What New York addicts, alcoholics
and their family, friends and loved ones need is a real and effective
drug rehab treatment center. One where they are not on a time schedule
or use other drugs to get the addict off the original drugs. The addict
needs a reliable proven program where when they are done, their drug
addiction is a thing of the past and they are now able to live full
productive lives free of the stronghold of drugs or alcohol.
It quickly becomes self-evident there is a real need for a
successful drug addiction treatment.
Should a chronic drug or
alcohol abuser attend a treatment program close to home?
Drug and alcohol addiction typically involves habitual routines in the
environmental scope of the individual, i.e. the locations of their drug
or alcohol use, the people they associated with in the activities of
drug or alcohol use, etc. Drug or alcohol addiction is not just drug and
alcohol use, it revolves around people and things in their immediate
environment which help to trigger the addictive behavior. The abuser's
location and routines of drug and alcohol use further trigger drug and
alcohol use. It is the constant and seemingly unstoppable drug or
alcohol use and the hopelessness of day to day existence which
perpetuates the problem and inhibits the native desire to stop ruining
their life through the use of drugs and alcohol.
The above factor should not be over looked when considering a treatment
center location. The first two weeks of treatment are always the most
difficult. In addition to
what has been covered above, a more basic factor is this - people are
creatures of habit. Even overwhelmingly positive and beneficial changes
in life, such as the birth of a child or a new job, does not guarantee
the individual will have no thoughts of missing past negative activities
such as drug or alcohol use, drug or drinking acquaintances and other
associated activities. Factually, this is the normal reactive auto-response of most human beings, to do what they are familiar with, good
or bad. It is not really that they yearn for these things, it is just
all that they have known for some time. If the abuser is close to home,
when overwhelming feelings manifest themselves, there is a good chance
he or she will leave and get back to what they know, drug addiction, as
it is not very far away. Due to these factors, attending a drug rehab
close to home is seldom the correct treatment option for chronic drug or
It is extremely therapeutic to be distanced from their
former association with drug dealers, bars, the cabinet where the
alcohol was kept, the cigar box where the marijuana was stored, etc. All
these triggers make the task of sobriety seem insurmountable to the
chronic drug or alcohol abuser as these triggers continuously stimulate
a reminder of their past addictive behaviors.
Choosing a long-term inpatient treatment program can be another key to a
successful outcome. By providing a new, safe trigger-free environment,
distanced from past negative associations and surroundings for an
extended period of time, the chance for success increases dramatically.

Choosing the Right Drug
Treatment Program for Marijuana Addiction

disorder they can do nothing about. When choosing a drug rehab center
