Addiction and Addiction Treatment Centers

Drug Situation: The Nashville District Office’s areas of responsibility include Memphis, Chattanooga, Knoxville, Jackson and Johnson City. A wide spectrum of illicit narcotics are currently available throughout Tennessee. To effectively combat this problem, DEA, local police departments, state agencies, and other federal law enforcement agencies are working together in a cooperative effort to increase the impact of drug law enforcement on narcotics traffickers. There is an increased need for addiction treatment centers to support law enforcement efforts by rehabilitating addicted individuals.

Many of the violent crimes in the state are directly associated with the distribution of cocaine HCL and crack and to cocaine abuse or crack abuse. Multi kilogram cocaine investigations and seizures are common place throughout the state. Cocaine abuse (or crack abuse) is a contributing factor for a number of individuals entering drug rehab centers.

 

drug rehab / drug addiction data - opium poppyHeroin: Heroin abuse in the state of Tennessee is limited. There have been no significant investigations or seizures of heroin in Tennessee in the last ten years. The only exception to this statement is the occasional highway seizure that was destined for another geographic area. Heroin abuse, does, however, contribute to a number of individuals seeking drug addiction treatment. The drugs of choice for the local addict population are diverted pharmaceutical drugs, such as Percodan, Percocet, and Oxycodone.

 

drug rehab / drug addiction data - Methamphetamine Labs Seizeddrug rehab / drug addiction data - methamphetamineMethamphetamine: Second only to cocaine trafficking in the state of Tennessee is the local manufacturing of methamphetamine. Clandestine meth labs in central and southeastern Tennessee have reached epidemic proportions. The number of laboratories seized in Tennessee has more than tripled in the last three years, from 137 laboratories in 1999 to 365 laboratories in 2001. It has been estimated that there is at least one methamphetamine lab either located or seized somewhere in the state
every day. Addiction to methamphetamine is a leading reason a significant number of individuals seek drug addiction treatment.

Rave Clubs, where these drugs are frequently sold, have been identified in the cities of Nashville and Knoxville. Entry to drug rehab centers for the abuse/ addiction of club drugs is on the rise.

 

 

drug rehab / drug addiction data - marijuana plantMarijuana: Locally grown cannabis has been Tennessee’s largest cash crop for the past ten years, surpassing even tobacco. Tennessee has ranked in the top five states for eradication of cultivated plants for the last ten years, placing number one in 1997. Marijuana is often reported as the drug of choice or a drug used in addition to the drug of choice by individuals entering drug rehab centers.

OxyContin is a slow release form of the painkiller Oxycodone, which is of benefit to cancer patients and those with chronic pain. OxyContin, whose effects are the same as other opiate derivatives, is obtained legally through prescriptions, as well as illegally on the street. There has been an increase in the number of individuals admitted to addiction treatment centers for oxycontin addiction.

There have been 359 deployments completed resulting in over 14,456 arrests of violent drug criminals as of April 1, 2002. There have been 2 Atlanta Division Mobile Enforcement Team (MET) deployments in the state of Tennessee since the inception of the program: Chattanooga and Clarksville. These deployments resulted in 74 arrests and the seizure of 13.8 pounds of cocaine, 6.6 pounds of crack cocaine, and 4.4 pounds of marijuana. Also seized were 20 vehicles, 30 firearms, and over $5.5 million in cash and property.

Other Enforcement Operations: Eastern Tennessee, along with portions of Kentucky and West Virginia, has been designated as a High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (Appalachian HIDTA). Until recently, the Appalachian HIDTA was a single mission HIDTA dedicated to cannabis eradication and cultivation investigations. In 2002, the Appalachian HIDTA was expanded to help combat the growing methamphetamine manufacturing problem.
