The Watershed does not provide treatment services in New Hampshire, but has treated hundreds of New Hampshire residents at our Florida and Texas facilities.
Crack cocaine, marijuana and methamphetamine are readily available in the State of New Hampshire. Marijuana is grown in the area and is easily the most abused drug. Methamphetamine abuse is also commonly found, mostly along the coastline cities. These drugs are smuggled into the area via land, sea, or air.
The State of New Hampshire, like most other eastern states, has not made progress in their drug laws. Rather than ordering drug addicts to complete drug treatment in New Hampshire, addicts are instead incarcerated as a way of drug treatment. This method of so-called drug treatment costs millions of dollars per year and is funded by the tax payers of the state.
The DEA Mobile Enforcement Teams have been working to counteract the overwhelming problems of drug-related violent crime in Manchester and other New Hampshire cities. In addition, DEA Regional Enforcement Teams have been developed to augment existing DEA resources in areas where there is an insufficient amount of local drug enforcement.
The State of New Hampshire is no different from the majority of other states when it comes to cocaine or crack cocaine addiction. Crack cocaine is widely available. The majority of cocaine is smuggled in from Illinois, Massachusetts, Georgia, Florida, Texas, and other southern states. The cocaine is primarily converted to crack and sold on the street. Inner cities have a population of cocaine addicts, but numbers have remained stable over the past decade. The cocaine trade has caused problems with street gangs, violence, crime, thefts, and inner city poverty.
It has branched out from the populated metropolitan areas of the state to smaller cities and rural locations. Due to the infiltration of crack, and its affordability, it poses a significant problem.

Methamphetamine use and abuse has increased significantly over the past two decades in the State of New Hampshire. This drug is widely available, especially along the coastal region. Meth is smuggled into the area from Mexico and Columbia.
There has been a decline in local meth labs since the State limited the availability of ephedrine – a major ingredient needed to produce meth; however, they still exist. These laboratories are located in rural, off-the-beaten-track locations. That’s because of the powerful smell that emanates during production and threatens to give away their location to law enforcement. These labs also cause environmental pollution and are a fire hazard. But since meth labs are a lucrative business, several drug cartels continue to utilize meth labs in the area.

Club drugs, or synthetic drugs, are known for their hallucinogenic and psychedelic properties. These drugs consist of the following: gamma-Hydroxybutyric acid (commonly known as GHB), phenylcyclohexylpiperidine (commonly known as PCP), 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 colleges and universities have a moderate supply of club drugs. The club drug trade is basically controlled by Asian gangs in this area. These drugs are smuggled in from New York, California, Texas, and across the border from Canada.
The abuse of prescription drugs is on the rise in the State of New Hampshire. The most abused drug is Oxycotin; other commonly abused pharmaceutical drugs include Hydrocodone, Methadone, Diazepam, Lortab, and Xanax.
The pharmaceutical drugs are obtained by forged prescriptions. Also, patients getting prescriptions from more than one doctor (referred to as “doctor shopping”), pharmacy break-ins, and from the internet. Another source of pharmaceutical drugs is from pain management clinics. Most are located in all the major cities which prescribe narcotics to addicts. In addition, drugs are brought into the area from cities along the southwest border and Mexico.
