Cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamine and heroin are among the most abused substances in the state. The drug trade in Massachusetts is primarily controlled by Colombian and Dominican traffickers.
Substance abuse is huge problem in The Bay State. In 2011 alone, there were more than 100,000 treatment admissions in Massachusetts.

Substance Abuse in Massachusetts
Alcohol is the primary substance of abuse for 38 percent of patients at Massachusetts rehab facilities, according to the Bureau of Substance Abuse Services. However, it is not uncommon for alcoholics to abuse other substances as well.
Massachusetts residents are also frequently being treated for heroin addiction. Over the years, law enforcement has seen a huge spike in heroin abuse. The street distribution of heroin is controlled by various street gangs and dealers; this has led to an upswing in violent crimes in Massachusetts.
Oftentimes, heroin abuse starts after an individual has become addicted to prescription drugs. Opioids are heavily abused in Massachusetts. OxyContin, Percocet, Roxicet, methadone, Vicodin, Xanax and Percodan are all abused in great quantities in The Bay State.
Cocaine is easily available throughout Massachusetts. It comes into the state either from New York, Florida, Georgia or the Mexico-U.S. border. Cocaine is often inadvertently shipped through the mail. The majority of powder cocaine is converted to crack cocaine. It is this form of cocaine that has created the biggest problem.
Methamphetamine is another drug that is often abused in Massachusetts. The main supply of the drug comes from California. However, the diligence of law enforcement has decreased the number of methamphetamine laboratories. Typically, crystal meth users are in their twenties and thirties.
Club drugs are also an issue in Massachusetts. Ecstasy is the most abused drug and readily available. Club drugs are abused by students at rave parties and nightclubs. They come into the state from New York and other surrounding states. The club drug trade in Massachusetts is controlled by gangs. Ketamine has been diverted from legitimate sources such as veterinary clinics.
Marijuana is a constant challenge in Massachusetts. Most of the supply comes from the southern states, with a recent influx of marijuana from Jamaica and Colombia. BC Bud, a stronger and purer form of marijuana, enters the state from Canada. Homegrown production of marijuana is limited because of the strict enforcement of state forest lands.
No matter what substance Massachusetts residents are addicted to, we can help them recover.
