Mississippi Drug Rehabs

Mississippi drug rehabThere are approximately 8,000 admissions to drug and alcohol rehabs in Mississippi each year, but unfortunately most of the programs have limited success and the relapse rate is pretty high.

With around 68,000 Mississippi citizens reporting illicit drug dependence or abuse within the past year, it is clear that not only is there a large gap between those who need addiction treatment and those who receive it, there is also the necessity of finding drug rehab programs that actually work.

The movement of illegal drugs into and through Mississippi has been a significant problem for law enforcement for a number of years. Mississippi is ideally suited with its interstate system, deepwater and river ports, and air and rail systems as the "Crossroads of the South" to facilitate drug movement from the South Texas/Mexico area and Gulf ports to the entire Midwest and Eastern Seaboard of the United States. The state is comprised of 82 counties, located within 47,233 square miles, the majority offering rural agricultural areas. Mississippi has 362 miles of coastline extending from Louisiana to Alabama. Mississippi lies within 500 miles of more than 115 million consumers and 136 major metropolitan areas. Mississippi has an elaborate system of interstate highways and major thoroughfares that make traveling to these metropolitan areas quick and easy. Because of their large number, many of these highways are seldom patrolled. Mississippi has seven passenger airports including the Golden Triangle Regional Airport in Columbus, Tupelo Municipal Airport, Gulfport-Biloxi Airport in Gulfport, Hattiesburg-Laurel Regional Airport in Hattiesburg, Greenville Municipal Airport, Meridian Municipal Airport, and the Jackson-Evers International Airport in Jackson. In Mississippi alone, primary rail carriers on the nearly 3,000 miles of train track include the Illinois Central Railroad, Kansas City Southern, Burlington Northern, Columbus & Greenville Railroad Company, and Norfolk Southern System. Amtrak passenger service to and from New Orleans, Louisiana to Chicago, Illinois transits the entire State of Mississippi with major stops in state providing yet another conduit for transporting and distributing large quantities of all types of drugs.
