Drug Rehabs Missouri

In Missouri, Mexican poly-drug trafficking organizations control a large majority of the distribution of methamphetamine, cocaine, marijuana, and heroin. Various organizations with ties to Texas, Arizona and California continue to traffic in methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin. In addition, small toxic methamphetamine laboratories are still found throughout Missouri. The shortage of cocaine in the state has led to an increase in the trafficking of other drugs, such as marijuana and heroin.

The drug problem in Missouri has created many drug rehab programs to help addicts on the road to recovery. Admitting that you have a drug problem isn’t easy. It takes courage and strength to face up to addiction. It’s normal to feel conflicted about giving up your drug of choice, even when you realize it’s causing problems in your life. When you’re bogged down in drug abuse and drug addiction, sobriety may seem like an impossible goal. But recovery is not out of reach. For many people struggling with addiction, the biggest and toughest step toward recovery is the very first one: deciding to make a change.

Missouri Drug Use and Drug-Related Crime

  • During 2007, there were 20,853 arrests in Missouri for marijuana possession. During 2006, there were 22,608 such arrests.
  • During 2006, the Missouri State Highway Patrol made 343 arrests for driving while intoxicated by drugs.
  • During 2007, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) made 609 arrests for drug violations in Missouri.
  • According to 2005-2006 data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), approximately 385,000 (8%) of Missouri citizens (ages 12 or older) reported past month use of an illicit drug.
  • Approximately 1.9 million (40.04%) Missouri citizens reported that using marijuana occasionally (once a month) was a “great risk”.
  • Additional 2005-2006 NSDUH results indicate that 130,000 (2.71%) Missouri citizens reported illicit drug dependence or abuse within the past year. Approximately 81,000 (1.68%) reported past year illicit drug dependence.
  • During 2007, authorities reported that there were 2 children injured and an additional 87 children affected by methamphetamine laboratories in Missouri.
  • During 2006, there were 400 fatal motor vehicle crashes in Missouri in which the driver was speeding. Approximately 1.3% (5) of these crashes were drug-related.
  • During 2005, there were 41,735 drug-related hospitalizations in Missouri.
  • During 2005, there were 674 reported drug-related deaths in Missouri.
  • There were 115 newborns affected by cocaine in Missouri during 2005.
  • During 2006, there were 45,383 admissions to drug/alcohol treatment in Missouri. There were 43,649 such treatment admissions during 2005. In 2004, there were 39,466 admissions to drug/alcohol treatment in the state.
  • According to 2005-2006 NSDUH data, approximately 118,000 (2.45%) Missouri citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment for illicit drug use within the past year.
  • In the state of Missouri it is estimated that there will be around 26,987 DUI's, and 321 deaths due to intoxicated driving this year. Statistics also show that there will be 1,635 deaths related to alcohol abuse, 8,384 tobacco related deaths, and 327 deaths due to illicit drug use.
  • It is believed that there are around 281,957 marijuana users, 46,204 cocaine addicts, and 2,617 heroin addicts living in Missouri. It is also estimated that there are 123,474 people abusing prescription drugs, 11,778 people that use inhalants, and 20,969 people who use hallucinogens.
  • In Missouri, there will be around 35,593 people arrested this year for drug related charges.
  • Cocaine:
    • For the past two years, law enforcement in both St. Louis and Kansas City report a shortage of cocaine in their areas. This shortage has led to an increase in price and a decrease in purity. The cocaine found in the state of Missouri typically comes from sources of supply in Texas, Arizona, and California that are associated with Mexican international distribution organizations. The cocaine is brought to Missouri primarily in vehicles on the interstate highway system. Much of the cocaine is then converted to crack and sold in the inner-city areas. While Hispanic trafficking organizations control the wholesale distribution of cocaine, local distribution of crack is mostly controlled by small independent dealers or by street gangs, some with loose affiliations to national gangs.
  • Heroin:
    • Since late 2002, heroin markets in eastern Missouri have seen a shift from low purity Mexican black tar heroin to white heroin, which originates in either South America or southwest Asia. The purity of the white heroin varies from levels as low as 10-15% (similar to the Mexican heroin), to samples which have been tested at above 40% in purity. The emergence of the white heroin is believed to have led to an expansion of the heroin markets to more suburban and rural areas of eastern Missouri. The ability to snort the white heroin makes it more attractive to young, suburban and rural users.
    • The availability of heroin in western Missouri remains very limited and the market continues to be dominated by Mexican black tar and powdered heroin. Some highway interdictions of larger quantities of South American white heroin have occurred in the past year. In each instance, the heroin was believed to be enroute to Chicago, Illinois.
  • Methamphetamine:
    • As with heroin, the methamphetamine market in Missouri differs greatly between the eastern and western halves of the state. The western half of the state is dominated by crystal “ice” methamphetamine, supplied by organizations based out of Mexico, California, and the southwest United States, and transported to the area by the traditional highway transportation organizations. Although “ice” is generally perceived to be higher in purity, lower purity levels have been found in many exhibits. Although, small toxic laboratories are still found in western Missouri, the number of laboratory seizures in the western half of the state dropped 74% from 516 in 2004 to 136 in 2007.
    • Although crystal “ice” methamphetamine continues to be available in Eastern Missouri, the issue of local methamphetamine laboratories remains a top priority with local officials. Law enforcement agencies have seen a resurgence in laboratory seizures since 2006. The state legislation limiting the sale of pseudoephedrine products is believed to have hindered local production throughout the state. However, local laboratory operators continue to bypass the legislation, by using friends and family to obtain the necessary ingredients through “smurfing” (going from store to store, purchasing the maximum allowable amounts), and through theft of ingredients such as anhydrous ammonia.
  • Club Drugs:
    • MDMA (ecstasy) continues to be available in all regions of Missouri. Drugs such as MDMA and GHB are widely available in all types of dance clubs in the major cities, and around college campuses throughout Missouri. MDMA is obtained by local distributors from sources of supply in California, New York, Florida, Texas and Washington State.
  • Marijuana:
    • Marijuana is prevalent throughout the state of Missouri. Mexican marijuana is imported into the state primarily on interstate highways in automobiles, commercial trucks, vans, horse trailers, rental trucks, and motor homes from the southwest border. There has also been an increasing availability of higher purity “BC Bud” marijuana from Canada and the northwest United States.
    • Indoor marijuana grow operations are found in the St. Louis and Kansas City areas. Outdoor grow operations are found in the rural parts of the state.
  • Pharmaceuticals and Other Drugs:
    • PCP is still found in both the Kansas City and St. Louis areas. The availability is greater in the Kansas City area, but St. Louis law enforcement occasionally reports a spike in the availability of the drug in the St. Louis area.
    • Although LSD is found in Missouri, its abuse is not believed to be widespread.
    • Khat is abused primarily by immigrants from eastern African countries such as Somalia. It has been encountered by law enforcement in highway interdictions.
    • Current investigations indicate that diversion of hydrocodone products such as Vicodin® and oxycodone products such as OxyContin® continues to be a problem in Missouri. Alprazolam, methadone, codeine, Adderall® and Ritalin® were also identified as being among the most commonly abused and diverted pharmaceuticals in Missouri. Primary methods of diversion being reported are forged prescriptions, employee theft, pharmacy theft, illegal sale and distribution by health care professionals and workers, “doctor shopping” (going to multiple doctors to obtain prescriptions for controlled pharmaceuticals), and via Internet purchases.

To the north of Missouri lies Iowa; across the Mississippi River to the east, Illinois, Kentucky, and Tennessee; to the south, Arkansas; and to the west, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Nebraska. With the exception of Tennessee, Missouri has more neighboring states than any other U.S. state. Bisecting the state is the Missouri River, flowing from Kansas City in the west, through the state’s capital, Jefferson City, in the centre, to just above St. Louis in the east, where it joins the Mississippi. Missouri was the name of a group of indigenous people who lived in the area at the time of European settlement; the French named the river after the native community, and the river, in turn, gave its name to the state.
