Drug And Alcohol Addiction In Boise, Idaho

Meth Addiction And Abuse In Boise

For years, Methamphetamines were the most commonly abused drugs in the rural county surrounding Boise, Idaho. Clandestine labs led to increased crime and rates of overdose for the area. As the US government increased restrictions on the cold medicine commonly used to make Meth, Mexican cartels stepped up their shipments of Meth into the US. Inpatient and outpatient treatment centers have responded accordingly; anyone struggling with Meth addiction has multiple treatment modalities to choose from.

Seattle, the closest major city, is 5 hours away along I-84; the highway is a favorite among drug runners, who can hit Oregon, Utah, and Montana without making an exit. In 2014, Ada County became a High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Area and started receiving federal grants to crack down on its Meth problem. Through increased addiction treatment, drug courts, and the Idaho Meth Project, started in 2008, Meth use has since been reduced by about 50%.

Heroin and opioids are devastating but meth has an element of criminality that goes along with it, the abuse, the violence. I can tell you after looking at the numbers that our adult rate of people incarcerated is about the same as it was in 2007. Heartbreaking.

- Debbie Field, State Board of Correction chairman, KTVB, 2017

The Opioid Epidemic In Boise

Half of prescription painkiller users in Boise have reported getting their pills from a friend or relative for free, while 85% said they received the medication from their doctor. Numbers like these outline the severity of the problem that Boise faces in the Opioid epidemic.

However, as laws surrounding prescription Opioids become stricter, many dependent on painkillers have turned to cheaper alternatives like Heroin. An individual with a prescription Opioid addiction is 40 times more likely to become addicted to Heroin. More powerful Opium derivatives, like Black Tar Heroin and Fentanyl, have also contributed to the growing substance abuse problem.

Addiction Treatment In Boise

Treating prescription Opioid and Meth addictions is the major focus for Idaho rehab centers. Of the treatment centers receiving Department of Health and Wellness funds, Heroin treatment increased by 50% in prior years. The department has provided funds to more than 20 addiction treatment centers in the Treasure Valley area (most offer outpatient services). Payment is based on financial situation.

Detoxing can be the hardest part of a person’s path to recovery. Some find it more beneficial to travel to detox centers outside their home area. Traveling for addiction treatment removes individuals from local stressors and also allows them to focus solely on their sobriety. If you or a loved one is battling addiction, there is hope. For more information on treatment options, contact a treatment provider today.
