Nebraska Drug Rehab
The popularity of predatory or club drugs continues to be a concern to law enforcement and to local communities. There is a perception among users that these drugs are "safe" to use. Preliminary investigations show organizations in Nebraska have been receiving multi-hundred to thousand dosage units of ecstasy. Stimulants, depressants, hallucinogens, anabolic steroids and illegally diverted pharmaceuticals are abused to a much lesser degree than the more traditional drugs in Nebraska.
Crystal meth or “ice” is still readily available in Omaha and has become the preferred form of methamphetamine. Cocaine remains readily available in the larger cities of Nebraska and is abused by all social and ethnic groups. Heroin is available in small amounts in the Omaha, Nebraska area, and is primarily obtained from sources in Mexico.
Nebraska has over 165 meat-packing/poultry plants and 55,000 farms statewide. The number of Hispanic workers, both legal and illegal, has nearly tripled in the last 10 years. This rapid population growth has allowed members of drug trafficking organizations with ties to Mexico to more easily blend into the community.
