Methamphetamine Drug Rehab San Francisco

Methamphetamine has become, without question, the most significant drug threat in San Francisco and the need for effective methamphetamine drug rehab remains a prevelant issue.

Methamphetamine is cheap and available in large urban areas as well as in smaller rural communities.  Crystal methamphetamine or "ice" is a purer form of methamphetamine (averaging 90 percent purity) created by refining the extraction process. Abuse of ice is largely confined to ethnic Asian groups and does not appear to be spreading to other ethnic populations. As abuse and subsequent addiction to the drug increases the need for effective methamphetamine drug rehab becomes a crucial issue to residents there.

The DEA San Francisco District Office reports the ready availability of large quantities of methamphetamine. Between October and December 1999, the low-end price of pound quantities of methamphetamine fell to $3,500 from $3,800 in the previous quarter. Ounce prices remained steady at a range of $500 to $1,000. Whatever the cost for the drug the need for methamphetamine drug rehab, education and addiction treatment programs feels right to residents.

Methamphetamine and violence--domestic violence and violence against society in general--have always gone hand in hand. Methamphetamine is a powerful stimulant that affects the central nervous system and can induce violent behavior, anxiety, insomnia, paranoia, hallucinations, mood swings, and delusions. Such violence poses a direct threat to law enforcement officers. The methamphetamine trade is responsible for an alarming number of domestic abuse crimes ranging from child neglect to homicide. With violence due to the drug on the rise the availability of effective methamphetamine drug rehab is an issue to be considered.

The paranoia that accompanies methamphetamine abuse has caused many users to assault and even kill family members. Adding to the domestic danger are the deplorable living conditions that characterize homes that have been turned into laboratories.  As the death toll rises in conjunction with the drug the need for methamphetamine drug rehab hits home.
