California Drug Rehab

Due to California's diverse culture and unique geography, there are many issues that affect the drug rehab situation in California. Drugs such as cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, and marijuana are smuggled into the state from Mexico; however, methamphetamine and marijuana are produced or cultivated in large quantities within the state. San Diego and Imperial Counties remain principal transshipment zones for a variety of drugs – cocaine, heroin, marijuana and methamphetamine – smuggled from Mexico. Most drug traffickers/organizations that are encountered by law enforcement continue to be poly-drug traffickers rather than specializing in one type of drug.

Since September 11, 2001, greater emphasis has been placed on carefully screening people and vehicles at all California Ports of Entry into the U.S. from Mexico. This has forced traffickers to attempt other means to smuggle their contraband into the U.S., including the use of tunnels that run underneath the border and more sophisticated hidden compartments in vehicles. Los Angeles is a distribution center for all types of illicit drugs destined for other major metropolitan areas throughout the U.S. as well as locally.

California Crack and Cocaine Drug Rehab

Cocaine is readily available throughout the state with Los Angeles remaining one of the nation’s largest cocaine transshipment and distribution centers. Cocaine is also widely available in San Francisco and other areas of northern California. This only makes the California Crack and Cocaine drug rehab problem continue to rise.

California Heroin Drug Rehab

The increased availability of high purity heroin that can be snorted allows a new, younger population to use heroin without a syringe and needle. California Heroin Drug Rehab specialists stated that these new heroin users ingest large amounts of heroin and become quickly addicted. Law enforcement officials normally encounter ethnic West African and Southeast Asian nationals in the distribution and transportation of Asian heroin. California does not have any noticeable heroin abuse in its Asian communities.

California Methamphetamine Rehab

In recent years, there has been a decrease in the number of meth labs seized in California and an increase in the number of meth labs just south of the border in Mexico. Rural areas in the Central Valley are the source of much of the meth produced in California and seized elsewhere. Within California itself, Hispanics and Caucasians are the almost exclusive consumers of meth. Purity levels of meth have ranged from a low of ten percent to a high of 100 percent purity. This highly potent Methamphetamine has led to a large amount of addicts entering California Methamphetamine Rehab.

California Marijuana Drug Rehab

Potent domestic marijuana is also cultivated in sophisticated indoor, hydroponic gardens throughout the state. The growing pervasiveness of domestically grown marijuana has been facilitated by numerous medicinal marijuana clubs and hydroponic shops in the state, which openly advertise or sell cannabis seeds and seedlings subsequently used in indoor or small outdoor grows. The medical cannabis has led to many patients entering California Marijuana Drug Rehab.
