The Watershed does not provide treatment services in Montana, but has treated many Montana residents at our Florida and Texas facilities.
Mexican poly-drug trafficking organizations are responsible the distribution of most of the methamphetamine, marijuana, cocaine, and heroin in the State of Montana. These organizations bring the drugs into the area from the Pacific Northwest, Colorado, Southwestern Border States, and across the border from Mexico. In remote areas of Montana, Methamphetamines are produced in illegal, private labs. As with many states, marijuana imported from Canada and alcohol abuse are also problematic.
Data obtained from the State of Montana Office of Applied Studies, Substance Abuse Treatment and Mental Health Service Administration, Treatment Episode Data Set shows that in 2004, the State population was 926,345. In 2004, a total of 2,403 of these residents were admitted to alcohol rehabilitation and drug rehabilitations facilities within the State. The breakdown of the data from the State of Montana shows that 31.2% of these 2004 admissions were for alcohol rehabilitation, 1.0% for heroin addiction, 19.2% for marijuana rehabilitation, and 1.5% for cocaine and crack treatment.
There are several Montana addiction treatment programs that are able to provide rehab services for adults and adolescents. Due to the sheer number and vast differences of treatment programs, it is not as easy to select a rehab center as you might initial think. It is important that research is conducted in order to find the proper drug rehabilitation program for the person seeking help with their addiction.
Drug rehabilitation centers in the State of Montana 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 a detox program is to purge the patient’s system of the drug prior to the treatment for the addiction.
Not every Montana drug rehab center has on-site detox programs, nor does every rehab center offer trauma treatment or dual diagnosis. Some rehabilitation centers offer the traditional 14 to 28 day course of treatment; however, other centers offer an extended or more intensive program. When seeking a rehab center it is always important to talk with the center about the treatment(s) available. Different treatments vary in time and cost; therefore, it is important to conduct proper research to find the right rehab program.

Alcohol abuse, or alcoholism, is a physical addiction that affects an individual’s mind, body, and spirit. Alcoholism can rob an individual of their health, family, finances, career, friends, and even their life.
Since alcohol is physically addictive, it is important for an individual wishing to end their addiction to do so under proper medical supervision in order to prevent dangerous health repercussions.
The alcohol rehabilitation programs in Montana differ in the services they provide to their patients. The State of Montana does offer federally funded rehab programs for those people that are financially challenged or do not have private insurance and are unable to pay for a private rehab program.
Cocaine is available in the larger cities of Montana, such as Billings and Great Falls, as well as the Blackfeet Indian Reservation; however, it is not widely available throughout the entire state. Cocaine is brought into the area from Washington, Colorado, California, and Southwest States. Crack trafficking, primarily in the Billings area, are controlled by street gangs.

Heroin is not frequently found in the State of Montana with the exception of the western part of near Missoula. This area has a higher availability of heroin due to its physical location near the State of Washington which is a transshipment point for heroin in the Pacific Northwest.
Methamphetamine is identified by law enforcement as the most significant drug problem in the State of Montana. Mexican trafficking organizations are responsible for most of the meth in the western area due to its proximity to drug trafficking routes in the Pacific Northwest. In addition to the organized meth trafficking, numerous small scale local laboratories in the area produce moderate quantities for personal use and local distribution. These small scale local meth labs are located in rural, off-the-beaten-track locations due to the powerful smell that emanates during production and threatens to give away their location to law enforcement.

Club drugs (also referred to as synthetic drugs) such as MDMA (which is the active ingredient in Ecstasy) are not widely available throughout the State of Montana; however, they can be found in larger communities and college campuses in the area. Additional club drugs such as gamma-Hydroxybutyric acid (commonly known as GHB), d-lysergic acid diethylamide (commonly known as LSD), and Ketamine (commonly known as Special K) are also found in college communities in the area. These drugs are brought into the area primarily from Seattle, Washington.
Marijuana is widely abused in the State of Montana. Most of the marijuana is brought into the area by Mexican poly-drug trafficking organizations from Mexico. The potent types of marijuana referred to as “BC Bud” or “Kind Bud” produced in the Pacific Northwest and western Canadian providences are becoming more popular and more available. Locally produced marijuana is also an issue, it is grown primarily indoors in small crops consisting of less than 100 plants.

The abuse of prescription drugs moderately exists in the State of Montana. Current data indicates the addiction to hydrocodone products such as Vicodin is an issue. OxyContin, benzodiazepines (such as Xanax and Valium) and Adderall were also identified as being among the most commonly abused. These drugs are most often obtained by forged prescriptions and employee theft.
