Indiana Drug Rehab
The influx of crystal meth into Indiana has increased from year to year. Trafficking organizations are transporting from 15 to 25 pounds at a time with a purity level ranging from 25 to 85 percent. The use of over-the-counter pseudoephedrine products are a major contributor to meth labs. Retail stores, a source of pseudoephedrine for illegal meth labs, monitor inappropriate retail level purchases by individuals.
Powdered cocaine is readily available throughout the state, and crack cocaine is primarily available within the urban areas. Heroin is not readily available in central and southern Indiana. In northern Indiana, Southwest Asian white heroin is available as is Mexican brown and black heroin. Heroin abusers range in age from teenagers to older adults. Indiana is an active drug transportation and distribution area. The northern part of Indiana lies on Lake Michigan, which is a major waterway within the St. Lawrence Seaway system providing international shipping for all sections of the Midwest.
