The Watershed does not provide treatment services in Indiana, but has treated hundreds of Indiana residents at our Florida and Texas facilities.
The State of Indiana is a hub for drug transportation and distribution both in and out of the area. The northern part of Indiana borders Lake Michigan which provides major seaway access to traffickers. In addition, the numerous major interstates that cross the area make it easy for the traffickers.
The drug trade is dominated by drug cartels that control the distribution of cocaine, methamphetamine, and marijuana in the area are organized, violent, and well integrated with other ethnic groups.
The DEA has created Mobile Enforcement Teams to respond to overwhelming issues related to drug violence in towns and cities. In addition, DEA regional enforcement teams have helped to augment existing DEA division resources by targeting drug organizations operating in the United States where there is a lack of sufficient local drug law enforcement.
The State of Indiana recognizes the imprisonment of every drug offender is not cost effective and that not all drug addicts are criminals. In 2001, legislation was passed which allows nonviolent drug offenders to receive drug treatment, home detention, or work release program instead of prison time. The State of Indiana has made significant improvements in their drug treatment and rehabilitation programs with money seized from drug raids.
There are several Indiana addictinon treatment centers that offer rehabilitation for a variety of addictions. It is important for the individual wishing to end their addiction to seek the proper professional medical care in a rehab center that fits their needs.
Indiana addiction treatment centers share many of the same visions and philosophies of service, but they do vary in services offered. It is strongly recommended that individuals seeking to end their addiction to drugs undergo a medically supervised detox treatment conducted by specialized medical and psychiatric professionals before the treatment for the actual addiction starts. The purpose and focus of the detox program is to purge the patient’s system of the drug prior to the treatment for the addiction. Not every Indiana addiction treatment facility has on-site detox programs, nor does every rehab center offer trauma treatment or dual diagnosis. Some Indiana drug rehab programs offer the traditional 14 to 28 day course of treatment; however, other centers offer an extended or more intensive program.
It is important to find the best rehabilitation program that fits your needs.

Powdered and crack cocaine are readily available throughout the State of Indiana and is mainly controlled by cartels. Cocaine is a drug associated with high rates of violence, crime, money laundering, rampant shootings, and social upheaval.
Heroin is harder to find in the State of Indiana than other drugs. Previously, Southeastern heroin was found it the area, but is being replaced by Mexican brown and black tar. The majority of the heroin distribution is controlled by violent and territorial organizations.
Methamphetamine is a continually increasing problem in the State of Indiana. Meth is a man-made stimulant that is manufactured in laboratories often located in rural of off-the-beaten-track location due to the powerful smell that emanates during production.
And threatens to give away their location to law enforcement. Such laboratories exist in Indiana as well as many other states throughout the country.
There has been a decrease of local meth labs in the area due in part to the fact the State passed a law which forbade the sale of chemicals like ephedrine and pseudoephedrine in cold products, and partly due to intense law enforcement efforts to close down local meth labs.

The abuse of club drugs, or synthetic drugs, is not as prevalent in the State of Indiana as in other states. Law enforcement seizures of club drugs are rare and the quantities found are small. Club drugs are known for their hallucinogenic and psychedelic properties and consist of the following: gamma-Hydroxybutyric acid (commonly known as GHB), d-lysergic acid diethylamide (commonly known as LSD), Ketamine (commonly known as Special K), and MDMA (which is the active ingredient in Ecstasy). The majority of users appear to be college students who frequent area nightclubs.
Marijuana abuse is a nationwide problem and the State of Indiana is no exception. Locally grown marijuana is not widespread; however, it has been found in rural areas, national forests, game parks, and public land by law enforcement. However, the State has a sophisticated air surveillance system and the DEA’s Domestic Cannabis Eradication/Suppression Program has led to eradication of numerous marijuana crops. The majority of marijuana is brought into this area from Mexico and is distributed by locals and members of the cartel.
