Drug Statistics and Facts
A typical meth lab is a collection of chemical bottles, hoses and pressurized cylinders. The cylinders can take many forms, from modified propane tanks to fire extinguishers, scuba tanks and soda dispensers. The tanks contain anhydrous ammonia or hydrochloric acid - both highly poisonous and corrosive. Labs are frequently abandoned, leaving behind potentially explosive and very toxic chemicals behind. Chemicals are also sometimes burned or dumped in woods or along roads.
In 2008, there were 10.6 million adults aged 18 or older (4.7 percent) who reported an unmet need for mental health care in the past year. This included 5.1 million adults who did not receive any mental health services in the past year. Among adults who did receive some type of mental health service in the past year, 17.9 percent (5.4 million) reported an unmet need for mental health care. (Unmet need among adults who received mental health services may reflect a delay in care or a perception of insufficient care.)
Youths aged 12 to 17 were asked a number of questions related to the extent of support, oversight, and control that they perceived their parents exercised over them in the year prior to the survey. In 2008, among youths aged 12 to 17 enrolled in school in the past year, 79.3 percent reported that in the past year their parents always or sometimes checked on whether or not they had completed their homework, and 70.2 percent reported that their parents limited the amount of time that they spent out with friends on school nights. Both of these rates reported in 2008 were similar to those reported in 2007 and remained statistically unchanged from the rates reported in 2002. However, in 2008, 80.0 percent reported that their parents always or sometimes provided help with their homework, which was similar to the rate in 2007 (80.9 percent) but was lower than the rate in 2002 (81.4 percent).
Serious mental illness (SMI) among adults is defined in Public Law 102-321 as persons aged 18 or older who currently or at any time in the past year have had a diagnosable mental, behavioral, or emotional disorder (excluding developmental and substance use disorders) of sufficient duration to meet diagnostic criteria specified within DSM-IV that has resulted in functional impairment, which substantially interferes with or limits one or more major life activities. In 2008, there were an estimated 9.8 million adults with SMI, representing 4.4 percent of adults.

Methadone Detoxification

Methadone detoxification provides opioid dependent patients with medication, health, social, and rehabilitation services that relieve withdrawal symptoms, reduce physiological cravings, and allow normalization of the body's functions. Methadone detoxification has been available for over 30 years and has been confirmed effective for opioid dependence in numerous scientific studies.

Methadone is used to help people trying to get off heroin and other drugs. Unfortunately, this substance which can be so helpful to recovering addicts is itself addictive. Going through methadone detoxification can be more difficult than getting off other opioids.

Methadone detoxification helps manage withdrawal symptoms such as:

  • backache
  • diarrhea
  • dilated pupils
  • excessive tears
  • general malaise
  • goose bumps
  • hot and cold chills
  • insomnia
  • irritability
  • muscle and bone pain
  • nausea
  • opiate craving
  • panic
  • perspiration
  • restlessness
  • runny nose
  • stomach cramps
  • vomiting
  • yawning

When you are ready to get help with your methadone addiction, look to a methadone detoxification center for help. Methadone detoxification can be very difficult on the person going through withdrawal. The dosage needs to be lowered slowly, and this process needs to be supervised by experienced medical personnel. When you are considering different methadone detoxification programs, ask about the center's experience with methadone users. You will also want to get some idea about the daily schedule, as well as how the staff will give you the support you need to get off methadone.

A very important factor in the chances of avoiding a relapse is to immediately check into a rehab center in order to continue the methadone detoxification and recovery process. Many rehab programs will recommend that once graduates complete drug rehab, they enter a sober living home in order to continue the process of maintaining their sobriety while re-entering everyday life.
