Drugs and Addiction Treatment Centers

Drug Situation: Methamphetamine, which is produced in Mexico and the Southwest United States, and is locally produced, remains the principal drug of concern in the State of Oklahoma and the principal drug of choice among those seeking drug addiction treatment. Cocaine, particularly crack cocaine, is a significant problem in the urban areas of the state. Oklahoma also serves as a transshipment point for drugs being transported to the eastern United States via Interstates 40 and 44 that intersect the state. Interstate 35 also provides a critical north-south transportation avenue for drug traffickers.

The cocaine is transported from Texas and Mexico via commercial airlines and motor vehicles. Mexican polydrug traffickers dealing in marijuana and methamphetamine bring some of the cocaine into the state. Much of the cocaine HCl is converted into crack cocaine for sale at the retail level. Crack is the drug of choice for a significant number of those entering drug rehab centers. Cocaine is distributed primarily by Mexican and African American traffickers. The majority of the cocaine purchased in the Oklahoma City area is transported in by local suppliers who travel to large cities in Texas and return to distribute the product.

drug rehab / drug addiction data - opium poppyHeroin: Black Tar heroin is available in limited quantities near the metropolitan areas in Oklahoma. It is rare to encounter brown or white heroin, though in rare instances, “white” heroin from Colombia has been seen. Demand for heroin has declined in recent years although it is still the drug of choice for many entering addiction treatment centers. The majority of heroin traffickers in Oklahoma receive their heroin from Mexico. Most of the heroin transported into Oklahoma is concealed in hidden compartments in passenger vehicles.

drug rehab / drug addiction data - Methamphetamine Labs Seizeddrug rehab / drug addiction data - methamphetamineMethamphetamine: Methamphetamine is the primary drug of choice in Oklahoma by a great number of addicted individuals seeking drug addiction treatment. Caucasian males and females are equally the primary users. Most of the methamphetamine in the state is brought in by Hispanic organizations via motor vehicles, commercial airlines, and mail delivery services. Local, small “mom and pop” laboratories continue to be a significant problem throughout Oklahoma. About 30% of local laboratories use the “Nazi” method and produce only ounce quantities or less
at a time. Two “super labs,” capable of
producing 20-40 pounds of methamphetamine
at a time, were seized over the last two years.

MDMA is found at rave parties in eastern and central Oklahoma. The amount of MDMA seized in Oklahoma and analyzed by DEA laboratories increased from 6 dosage units in CY2000 to 2,657 dosage units in CY2001. The majority of the MDMA found in Oklahoma comes from the West Coast, Nevada and Texas. A small number of seizures have involved MDMA originating
in Canada.

drug rehab / drug addiction data - Drug-Violation Arrestsphoto - marijuana plantMarijuana: Marijuana is readily available in all areas of Oklahoma, and is the main illegal drug of abuse in the state. Marijuana imported from Mexico is prevalent and is usually imported in combination with other illegal drugs being transported to Oklahoma and other states north and east. It is usually reported to be used in conjunction with other drugs by those entering drug rehab centers. The majority of the marijuana is smuggled from the southwest border via passenger vehicle and occasionally in freight vehicles. Mexican “Sensimilla,” usually found in pressed/brick form, is the most common type of marijuana seen in Oklahoma, particularly in urban areas. Domestically produced marijuana is also available in Oklahoma, though not as readily in recent years. Oklahoma, along with several other southern states, has endured severe drought conditions over the past three years, affecting the local production of marijuana. Marijuana Legislation: In April 2002, a law permitting enforcement officials to spray wild marijuana with glyphosate (Round Up) was passed despite controversy about health concerns for local farm animals and crops. For the past several years, there have been attempts to introduce legislation regarding the medicinal use of marijuana and the production of hemp. The legislation has always failed to make it out of committee.

Other Drugs: The most popular pharmaceutical substances abused in Oklahoma are Vicodin, Lortab, propoxyphene, alprazolam, hydrocodone, Ultram, diazepam, Hycodan, Demerol, Dilaudid, and Percodan. Much of the diversion is through fraudulent prescriptions, doctor shopping, pharmacy break-ins, and hospital thefts. OxyContin is also increasing as a pharmaceutical drug of abuse in Oklahoma and its being named a drug of choice by addicted individuals upon entry to addiction treatment centers is on the rise.

DEA Mobile Enforcement Teams: This cooperative program with state and local law enforcement counterparts was conceived in 1995 in response to the overwhelming problem of drug-related violent crime in towns and cities across the nation. There have been 359 deployments completed resulting in over 14,456 arrests of violent drug criminals as of April 1, 2002.

Drug Rehab Centers are Essential:

While the efforts of law enforcement strive to arrest the drug abuse/addiction problem in Oklahoma, those addicted must be able to seek drug addiction treatment in order to regain their lives and become valuable members of their communities.
