 West Virginia State Treatment Center

West Virginia is a predominantly rural state. Its mountains and highways make it ideal for drug traffickers. It is a moderately poor state, but cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana abuse are increasing. All kinds of prescription and club drugs are available in West Virginia, especially by young adults. The drugs enter the state from Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, Washington, D.C. and Chicago. As a result of the influx of drugs into West Virginia, violence and money laundering are on the rise.

 

Crack cocaine is widely abused across all demographics, but especially in the rural parts of West Virginia. Methamphetamine comes into the state from New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Florida and Texas. The amount of locally produced methamphetamine in local laboratories has declined over the past few years. Despite this, the vast rural landscape has created a challenge for law enforcement.

 

The abuse of club drugs in West Virginia is on the upswing. MDMA (ecstasy), LSD, GHB, PCP and ketamine are all abused at rave parties and nightclubs. The club drug trade in West Virginia is controlled by gangs and the majority of the supply comes from outside the state.

 

West Virginia is one of the poorest states in the United States, but it is one of the top marijuana growers. Private plots have proved difficult for law enforcement to detect and the state is working hard to combat this problem.

 

Prescription drug abuse is, as in other states, on the increase. Oxycontin, hydrocodone, methadone, xanax, diazepam and Lortab are all heavily abused in West Virginia. Doctor shopping, pharmacy robberies and Internet purchases account for most of the supply in West Virginia.
