Drug Rehab Montana
Drug addiction is on the rise in the state of Montana and the need for quality drug rehabilitation has never been more necessary. For the best possible drug rehab results, an individual living in Montana that has a substance abuse problem, should receive help for their drug addiction as soon as it is apparent. They should be sure to find a drug rehab program that has steadily maintained a high degree of success in the treatment of drug addiction. A quality Montana drug rehab center will utilize various types of treatment strategies after taking into consideration the type of drug addiction that an individual is dealing with. The Montana drug rehab will then evaluate the types of drugs an individual has used, the person's medical history, and the length of the drug addiction to help to determine the best possible course of drug treatment. There are many different types of drug rehab facilities, but experts in the field of drug addiction almost always recommend the longest course of treatment that is possible to be administered in a residential setting. Short term drug rehab programs may produce positive results for a select few with addictions of a short duration that can be treated at the earliest stages, but most individuals need more intensive treatment. The most important aspect of a Montana drug rehabilitation program is that it must address both the physical and psychological dependency that is related to the substance abuse problem.
The first stage of treatment in most Montana drug rehab programs is the detoxification process. The sole purpose of this component of treatment is to safely manage drug withdrawal symptoms. An individual that is going through this process will experience uncomfortable symptoms that coincide with the drug withdrawal process; with the support of the professionals at a quality drug rehab center, some of this discomfort can be alleviated through the use of various treatment methods. It is only after an individual has completed the detox process that they can benefit substantially from the treatment portion of the drug rehab program. The other components of a drug rehab facility can differ depending on whether the program is inpatient or outpatient and the length of time that an individual will be receiving treatment for their drug addiction. Some form of counseling, drug relapse prevention education and aftercare are usually a standard level of care that is administered in most long term residential drug rehab programs.

Montana Drug Information and Drug Trafficking
Montana drug trafficking sources report that Mexican poly-drug trafficking organizations are responsible for distributing most of the methamphetamine, marijuana, cocaine and heroin throughout the state. These organizations have sources of supply in Colorado, the southwest border, the Pacific Northwest, and Mexico. Marijuana is also smuggled into Montana across the Canadian border by smaller organizations. Currently, meth production and use remains the primary drug issue faced by law enforcement.
Cocaine is available in the larger communities of Montana, but not widely available throughout the state. Billings, Great Falls and the Blackfeet Indian Reservation are the primary locations for cocaine use. Sources of supply are usually located in Washington, California, Colorado, and the Southwest. Crack trafficking in Montana is primarily limited to the Billings area, where street gangs control the market. These gangs have sources of supply in California and Chicago.
Heroin is not frequently encountered in Montana. Western Montana, primarily Missoula, has a higher availability of heroin due to the proximity to the state of Washington, historically a transshipment point for heroin in the Pacific Northwest.
Montana law enforcement officers across the state identify methamphetamine as the most significant drug problem. Mexican trafficking organizations are responsible for the majority of methamphetamine distribution in the state. Mexican methamphetamine is most available in western Montana, due to the proximity to established trafficking routes in the Pacific Northwest.
Beyond organized methamphetamine trafficking, numerous small scale local laboratory operators, producing moderate quantities of methamphetamine for personal use or local distribution, are problematic to law enforcement.
Drug information from Montana shows that "club drugs", such as MDMA, are not widely available throughout the state but can be found in the larger communities and on college campuses. Traffickers are typically white males, 18 to 25 years of age, with sources of supply in the Seattle, Washington, area. Abuse of other club drugs, such as LSD, GHB, and Ketamine appear to be limited to college communities.
Marijuana is the most widely abused drug in Montana. Most originates in Mexico and is smuggled into the state by Mexican poly-drug trafficking organizations. Locally produced marijuana is primarily grown indoors, with grows generally consisting of less than 100 plants. Potent "BC Bud" or "Kind Bud" from the Pacific Northwest and western Canada is increasing in popularity and availability. It is often smuggled directly into Montana across the Canadian border, and from there is often transshipped to other areas of the United States.
