Drug Rehabs Idaho

The greatest drug threat to Idaho is Mexican drug trafficking organizations trafficking in methamphetamine, marijuana and cocaine. Crystal methamphetamine has replaced methamphetamine HCL in popularity in Idaho. The northern portion of the Idaho panhandle shares a border with Canada, and this area has been the subject of seizures of BC Bud marijuana being smuggled from Canada to the United States. Mexican nationals have made inroads into the large scale outdoor production of marijuana on private, state, and federal lands. Today, cocaine is becoming more popular in Idaho, although crack cocaine is not considered a significant threat. Club drugs are mainly a part of rave parties, with MDMA (street name Ecstasy) being the most available.

The drug addiction problem in Idaho is being addressed by many qualified drug rehabilitation facilities. Drug rehabilitation begins with detoxification, followed by treatment and relapse prevention. Easing withdrawal symptoms can be important in the initiation of treatment and preventing relapse is necessary for maintaining one’s sobriety. Keep in mind, sometimes as with other chronic conditions episodes of relapse may require a return to treatment.

Treatment for drug addiction in Idaho often involves a variety of care. Many rehab programs include customized treatment regimens—addressing all aspects of an individual's life, including medical and mental health services. Some programs may also include follow–up options (e.g., community – or family-based recovery support systems). These follow-up support systems can be crucial to a person's success in achieving and maintaining a drug–free lifestyle once they have completed the drug rehabilitation program.

Idaho Drug Use and Drug-Related Crime

  • During 2007, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) reported making 143 arrests for drug violations in Idaho.
  • The majority of the drug/narcotic and drug equipment violation offenses reported in Idaho during 2006 involved possession/concealing.
  • Additional 2005-2006 NSDUH results indicate that 35,000 (3.00%) Idaho citizens reported illicit drug dependence or abuse within the past year. Approximately 22,000 (1.87%) reported past year illicit drug dependence.
  • Approximately 443,000 (37.85%) Idaho citizens reported that using marijuana occasionally (once a month) was a “great risk,” according to 2005-2006 NSDUH data.
  • According to 2007 data from a survey of Idaho 12-24 year olds, 87% of respondents reported that regular methamphetamine use was a “great risk,” 85% reported regular heroin use was a “great risk” and 84% reported regular cocaine use was a “great risk”.
  • During 2007, authorities reported that there were 4 children affected by methamphetamine laboratories in Idaho.
  • During 2007, more than 7,500 clients received outpatient substance abuse treatment services in Idaho.
  • According to 2005-2006 NSDUH data, approximately 33,000 (2.78%) Idaho citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment for illicit drug use within the past year.
  • In the state of Idaho it is estimated that there will be around 6,773 DUI's, and 80 deaths due to intoxicated driving this year. Statistics also show that there will be 410 deaths related to alcohol abuse, 2,104 tobacco related deaths, and 82 deaths due to illicit drug use.
  • It is believed that there are around 70,768 marijuana users, 11,596 cocaine addicts, and 656 heroin addicts living in Idaho. It is also estimated that there are 30,990 people abusing prescription drugs, 2,956 people that use inhalants, and 5,263 people who use hallucinogens.
  • In Idaho, there will be around 8,933 people arrested this year for drug related charges.
  • Cocaine:
    • During the past year, in the DEA Boise Area of Responsibility, the price of cocaine HCL has diminished. The use of cocaine has also tripled during the same period. This is due to the increased law enforcement activities by Mexican law enforcement authorities against precursor chemicals and methamphetamine production in that country.
    • Mexican drug trafficking organizations are the predominate groups directing the importation and distribution of cocaine within Idaho.
    • Crack cocaine is encountered infrequently and is not considered a major drug threat. Cocaine distribution in Idaho is obtained by Mexican organizations from sources in Mexico, Arizona, California, and other Southwest Border states.
  • Heroin:
    • Mexican black tar is the predominate form of heroin available in Idaho, with brown heroin encountered sporadically.
    • Mexican drug trafficking organizations are the main groups responsible for the importation and distribution of heroin in Idaho.
    • Mexican black tar heroin is produced in Mexico and obtained by organizations from sources in Mexico or other Mexican drug trafficking organizations in Arizona, California or other Southwest Border states.
  • Methamphetamine:
    • Crystal Methamphetamine (ice) is a widely abused drug in Idaho, and continues to impact all elements of society. Idaho has experienced a dramatic decrease in methamphetamine labs as Mexican organizations turn to methamphetamine produced in Mexico. During the past year, there has been a marked decrease in the quality and quantity of methamphetamine in Idaho. During this same period, there has also been an increase in the price of methamphetamine in Idaho. All of this is the result of aggressive domestic law enforcement targeting and a crackdown by Mexican law enforcement on the importation of precursor chemicals, and methamphetamine labs in that country.
  • Club Drugs:
    • Club drugs, particularly MDMA continues to be popular among young adults, and most often is found at rave venues. MDMA encountered for sale in Idaho is believed to originate in Canada, which is then smuggled into the United States through the State of Washington.
    • Steroids are also available in Idaho, and are mainly acquired through Internet purchases.
  • Marijuana:
    • Marijuana is one of the most highly abused drugs in Idaho. Some marijuana is produced in indoor grow operations. Marijuana is produced primarily on local properties, and state and federal forest lands. The large outdoor cultivation plots are largely controlled by Mexican nationals. Marijuana that is smuggled from Mexico into Idaho is available, but is less desirable.
    • BC Bud marijuana from Canada is not as widely available for sale in Idaho; however, along the Idaho panhandle area which borders Canada, there have been seizures of BC Bud marijuana attempting to be smuggled into the United States.
  • Pharmaceuticals and Other Drugs:
    • In Idaho, prescription drugs are largely abused. The primary methods of diversion of legitimate pharmaceuticals continue to be illegal dispensing and prescribing by physicians, prescription forgery, doctor shopping, and drug thefts from pharmacies and hospitals. Pharmacy burglaries are prevalent throughout the state. Diversion Investigators are also encountering pharmaceuticals that have been purchased via the Internet. The abuse and trafficking of oxycodone (OxyContin, Percocet, Percodan), hydrocodone (Vicodin, Lortab), methadone, and anabolic steroids continues to be a concern.

Idaho’s area is twice that of the six New England states combined. Its boundaries—with the Canadian province of British Columbia to the north and the U.S. states of Montana and Wyoming to the east, Utah and Nevada to the south, and Oregon and Washington to the west—are both historical and geographic in derivation. The boundary with British Columbia follows the 49th parallel of north latitude, while the border with Utah and Nevada follows the 42nd parallel; both lines were established by treaty—the northern between the United States and Britain in 1846 and the southern between the United States and Spain in 1819. The border with Montana follows the Continental Divide, while the border with Wyoming incorporates a small slice of Yellowstone National Park. Idaho’s border with Oregon and Washington is a 480-mile (770-km) straight stretch except between the Idaho cities of Weiser and Lewiston, where Hells Canyon of the Snake River serves as a natural boundary. Boise is the state capital.
