Iowa Drug Rehab
The state of Iowa continues to see the abuse of ecstasy. Most of the ecstasy in eastern Iowa is said to come from sources in California, New York, Spain, and the Netherlands. The organizations are believed to transport the ecstasy with package services. Bulk quantities of ecstasy are readily available within central Iowa. Package services are frequently used, as well as common land transport methods. Most of the ecstasy in central Iowa is believed to be primarily produced in Canada and smuggled across the northern border of the U.S.
The majority of the marijuana throughout Iowa is imported from the southwest border in motor vehicles and mail delivery services. Domestically produced marijuana is also available in Iowa. Wholesale marijuana in northwest Iowa is primarily distributed by the large Hispanic community in South Sioux City, Nebraska.
Treatment professionals in Iowa continue to report widespread addiction to OxyContin. Officials from the Iowa Board of Pharmacy Examiners report that hydrocodone products continue to be the most prevalent pharmaceutical drugs of abuse in Iowa. While heroin availability is limited in Iowa, the Cedar Rapids Resident Office reports that when encountered, it is of both black tar and white heroin types. In metropolitan areas of eastern Iowa, cocaine is the number two drug of choice, behind marijuana. In central and western Iowa, methamphetamine remains the principal drug of concern, while cocaine is now the principal drug of concern in eastern Iowa.
