The Problems Facing Kentucky

Cocaine, diverted pharmaceutical drugs, methamphetamine and marijuana continue to be Kentucky's primary drug threats. The eastern region of the state in particular, has been a primary source of marijuana cultivation. While it is the site of large-scale marijuana cultivation, most of the marijuana produced in the state is exported to markets in other states, including Washington D.C, Pennsylvania, Texas, California, New York, Ohio and Illinois. One increasing threat throughout Kentucky is methamphetamine, the use of which has increased dramatically. Law enforcement authorities see this as an "exploding" trend much the same as crack cocaine several years ago. Though methamphetamine manufacturing activity throughout the state consists mostly of small, unsophisticated clandestine laboratories producing limited amounts of methamphetamine, this activity is expected to expand rapidly in the near future in terms of both the number of labs and their size/sophistication. After marijuana, cocaine is the primary drug seized throughout the state. The limited competition in remote areas makes the small communities of eastern Kentucky immensely popular and profitable for cocaine trafficking organizations from major metropolitan areas. Additionally, urban areas such as Lexington and Louisville are used as transshipment points for cocaine en route from the southwest border to markets in the Northeastern United States. Finally, several counties in the eastern part of the state lead the nation in terms of grams of narcotic pain medications distributed on a per capita basis. Aside from marijuana cultivation and trafficking, the trafficking and illicit usage of prescription drugs in the area may be the most significant current substance threat facing the residents of eastern Kentucky.

The Need for the Right Type of Assistance

If an individual is struggling with addiction, it is important they seek out professional help as quickly as possible. However, it is important to remember that one size does NOT fit all when it comes to effectively treating someone who is struggling with a dependence on illicit substances. There is a wide assortment of unique issues that emphasize the need for every approach to be distinctive. Including, but not limited to, the following:

Only when all those questions have been answered, can the prospective patient find the right program that suits their precise needs. Anyone who suggests to you that a one-size-fits-all approach would work is not being honest.

What are the Available Options?

We have emphasized the fact that there are many different options available, but what are some of the common ones? We have selected three of the more popular choices.

Any of these options should (and most likely will) begin with detoxification. Without that first step, it would be next to impossible to get to the root cause of dependence.

Which is the Right One for Me?

There were 722 individuals who died as a direct result of drug use in Kentucky in one year alone. That means that for 772 individuals, the treatment that they desperately needed to avoid that tragic fate did not come in time. However, if you are struggling with chemical dependence or know someone who is, it is still possible to find help. Do not assume that someone is 'too far gone' for help. There are many instances of people receiving help and managing to recover.

Substance Abuse Support for KY ResidentsEven though it would be far easier for us to make recommendations on this very page and tell you where to go, that is not something we feel comfortable doing as that truly would be a disservice. As previously mentioned, depending on the situation, the recommendations that we make can vary from person to person. Two people that are the same age, have the same marital status, physical condition and live in the same vicinity may need completely different treatments. That is why it is best to speak with our counselors for a free and confidential one-on-one consultation. Find out immediately what treatments are available and which would provide the best fit. Don't spend another day wondering what might happen and take the step needed to live a sober life.
