Drug Rehabs Nebraska

Methamphetamine is the major concern for law enforcement within the state of Nebraska. Nebraska continues to be a transshipment state for Mexican methamphetamine with Interstate 80 providing easy west to east access across the state. Nebraska has over 165 meat-packing/poultry plants and 55,000 farms statewide. The number of Hispanic workers, both legal and illegal, has nearly tripled in the last 10 years and Hispanic children currently represent the largest minority student population in the state. This rapid population growth has allowed members of drug trafficking organizations with ties to Mexico to more easily blend into the community.

Nebraska has many drug and alcohol rehab programs to help with the states addiction problem. Like other chronic health problems, addiction can be managed successfully though drug rehabilitation. Treatment enables people to counteract addiction's powerful disruptive effects on the brain and behavior and to regain control of their lives. The chronic nature of the drug addiction means that relapsing to drug abuse is not only possible but also likely. Unfortunately, when relapse occurs many deem treatment a failure. This is not the case: successful treatment for addiction typically requires evaluation and modification as appropriate, similar to the approach taken for other health problems.

Nebraska Drug Use and Drug-Related Crime

  • During 2007, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) reported making 132 arrests for drug violations in Nebraska.
  • According to 2005-2006 data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), approximately 102,000 (7%) of Nebraska citizens (ages 12 or older) reported past month use of an illicit drug.
  • Approximately 593,000 (41.14%) Nebraska citizens reported that using marijuana occasionally (once a month) was a “great risk”.
  • Additional 2005-2006 NSDUH results indicate that 34,000 (2.36%) Nebraska citizens reported illicit drug dependence or abuse within the past year. Approximately 26,000 (1.78%) reported past year illicit drug dependence.
  • During 2007, there were 15,416 admissions to drug/alcohol treatment in Nebraska. There were 14,968 such treatment admissions in 2006. During 2005, there were 15,189 treatment admissions in Nebraska.
  • According to 2005-2006 NSDUH data, approximately 32,000 (2.18%) Nebraska citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment for illicit drug use within the past year.
  • In the state of Nebraska it is estimated that there will be around 8,167 DUI's, and 97 deaths due to intoxicated driving this year. Statistics also show that there will be 495 deaths related to alcohol abuse, 2,537 tobacco related deaths, and 99 deaths due to illicit drug use.
  • It is believed that there are around 85,336 marijuana users, 13,983 cocaine addicts, and 792 heroin addicts living in Nebraska. It is also estimated that there are 37,370 people abusing prescription drugs, 3,564 people that use inhalants, and 6,346 people who use hallucinogens.
  • In Nebraska, there will be around 10,772 people arrested this year for drug related charges.
  • Cocaine:
    • Cocaine is available in limited quantities in the Omaha Metropolitan area. This is primarily due to the consumer preference for methamphetamine. The available cocaine is obtained primarily from sources in southwest border states. Cocaine distributors in Omaha are primarily of Hispanic origin and are known to trade with African-American groups who convert the cocaine to crack.
  • Heroin:
    • Heroin is available in small amounts in the Omaha, Nebraska area, and is primarily obtained from sources in Mexico. While not considered a drug of choice in Nebraska, some Hispanic trafficking organizations have heroin available for consumer use.
  • Methamphetamine:
    • Crystal methamphetamine or “ice” is readily available in Omaha and has become the preferred form of methamphetamine. The availability of imported methamphetamine is stable in all areas of Nebraska with a negligible presence of local low-yield labs in the rural areas. Hispanic controlled trafficking organizations import methamphetamine into Nebraska primarily in vehicles. Although these organizations are willing to sell their product to non-Hispanic organizations or individuals, control of the product from production until it reaches the consumer is usually kept within the Hispanic community.
  • Club Drugs:
    • The popularity of predatory or club drugs continues to be a concern to law enforcement and to local communities. There is a perception among users that these drugs are "safe" to use. Preliminary investigations show organizations in Nebraska have been receiving multi-hundred to thousand dosage units of MDMA (ecstasy) from Texas, Florida, and Arizona. LSD and PCP are rarely encountered in Nebraska.
  • Marijuana:
    • Marijuana is readily available throughout the major cities in Nebraska. The marijuana available in the state includes marijuana from Mexico and from sources in the state of Washington which may have obtained their marijuana from grow operations in British Columbia, Canada. Mexican originated marijuana is transported to Nebraska via the El Paso, Texas; Nogales, Arizona; and southern California ports of entry. Methods of transportation include all forms of vehicles via the U.S. highway system and through the use of commercial transportation such as Greyhound buses and Amtrak. Trafficking organizations are primarily controlled by Hispanics.
  • Pharmaceuticals and Other Drugs:
    • Diversion of OxyContin®, hydrocodone, and codeine-based cough syrups continues to be a problem in Nebraska. Methods of diversion include “doctor shopping” (going to multiple doctors to obtain prescriptions for controlled pharmaceuticals) and forged prescriptions. Stimulants, depressants, hallucinogens, anabolic steroids and illegally diverted pharmaceuticals are abused to a much lesser degree than the more traditional drugs in Nebraska.

Nebraska is bordered by South Dakota, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, and Wyoming. The Missouri River is on its eastern boundary. The North Platte and South Platte rivers unite in southwest-central Nebraska to form the Platte River. Various prehistoric peoples inhabited the area as early as 8000 bce. Native American tribes living in the area include the Pawnee, Oto, and Omaha in the east and centre, as well as the Oglala, Sioux, Arapaho, and Comanche in the west. The U.S. bought the territory from France as part of the Louisiana Purchase in 1803. In 1804 the Lewis and Clark Expedition visited the Nebraska side of the Missouri River. It became part of Nebraska Territory with the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854. Nebraska was admitted to the Union as the 37th state in 1867. Soon after, the population increased, and as Indian resistance on the frontier was broken, settlement extended to Nebraska’s panhandle. At the turn of the 20th century, it experienced a short but influential Populist movement. In 1937 it established a unicameral legislature, the only one in the country. Most of the state is agricultural; its industries include food processing and machinery. Petroleum is the principal mineral resource. In addition to Lincoln, Omaha is the state’s other cultural and industrial centre.
