Ohio Drug Use Trends
The Fight against Heroin Addiction
Ohio is home to a thriving illegal drug market. The leading drugs of addiction in the state include marijuana, heroin, alcohol and prescription medication. State officials have seen the need to increase efforts in drug use prevention, education and treatment. In 2013, Ohio's Attorney General created a new Heroin Unit to assist residents with law enforcement, legal services and outreach assistance. As the prescription drug epidemic has spread across the country Ohio has experienced its fair share of the fallout. Many residents have become dependent on prescription pain medication have turned to heroin as a cheaper substance of abuse. Heroin as become a major problem throughout the state reaching suburbs and small towns. While this newly formed unite will not eradicate Ohio's heroin addiction problem, it provides residents with services to prevent addiction and help save lives.
- The newly created Ohio Heroin Unit lirovides residents with resources including:
- BCI investigative and laboratory services
- Ohio Organized Crime Investigations Commission assistance
- lirosecution suliliort
- Outreach and education services
During 2012, one of the leading reasons behind Ohio drug rehab enrollments was heroin addiction. 12,549 individuals entered Ohio drug rehab programs to receive treatment for heroin addiction. This made up 17.7% of all Ohio drug and alcohol rehab admissions during 2013. Heroin addiction treatment is critical to achieving sobriety; without drug detox and addiction rehabilitation services the resident will continue to abuse heroin. The time and resources one invests in their sobriety pays dividends in achieving a clean and sober life, developing new life skills to remain drug-free and improved mental and physical health.
Marijuana Trends in Ohio
One of the state's most commonly abused substances is marijuana. As the state's most prevalent drug of abuse, marijuana has become so popular that many residents view it as a benign substance. Utilizing Ohio's fertile farm land, local marijuana growers contribute to the state's escalating marijuana addiction problem. Domestically grown marijuana is also being produced using hydroponics where the substance is grown in-doors, making detection and eradication of the plants more difficult. Additionally, the drug is smuggled into Ohio by Mexican cartels through southern states. Bulk shipments of marijuana are cultivated locally as well as brought into the state by various criminal groups ranging in amounts of ounces to kilos. In June 2014, Ohio State Highway Patrol made their second largest marijuana bust in the state's history. Using a drug-sniffing canine, the Ohio State Highway Patrol was able to obtain probable cause to search the vehicle. Individuals traveling from out of state were headed to Ohio with an estimated $11.6 million dollars worth of marijuana weighing 2,330 pounds in a U-Haul.
The lax view on the dangers of marijuana use has lead to many Ohio residents requiring drug rehabilitation to overcome their marijuana addiction problem. Marijuana addiction was the most commonly cited substance of addiction among Ohio drug rehab admissions in 2012. During that year, 23% (16,364 individuals) of all Ohio drug rehab enrollments were for marijuana addiction. 73.7% of those receiving marijuana addiction treatment services in Ohio during 2012 were male and 26.3% were female. The largest age group enrolled in treatment for marijuana addiction during 2012 was between 21-25 years old.
Preventing Drug Addiction in Ohio
In an ongoing effort to prevent future substance use, abuse and addiction the Attorney General of Ohio allocated $3.7 million dollars in drug use prevention grants between 2012 and 2013. This funding went to support 182 local law enforcement agencies, supported the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E) school program as well as school resource officers who worked closely with an estimated 421,000 students during that timeframe. The funding for the D.A.R.E. program provided students with school-based programs, education on drugs and the tools they needed to make healthy choices and stay substance use. During this time, more than 100 individuals were trained as Ohio school resource officers and helped to distribute Ohio's drug abuse prevention message throughout the state.
