Drug abuse has been a problem in Hawaii for many years. Individuals get hooked on drugs like heroin, cocaine, prescription opiates and alcohol. Today, according to the Hawaii Drug Control Update, one of the biggest drug problems in Hawaii is methamphetamine, a stimulant.
Made in meth labs that are often located in rural or forested areas outside of cities, meth labs are dangerous facilities that operate illegally to produce meth. Studies show that more than 50 percent of meth labs in Hawaii will explode or catch fire at some time. Aside from the harm that the meth drug itself can do, these accidents often result in serious injury and death.
The Hawaii Meth Project is trying to ebb the meth impact in Hawaii, but the problem is still looming. The only proven way to get off meth and other drugs completely is to enter a rehab facility where detox and mental recovery can take place.
To find a rehab center that’s right for you, take these points into consideration.
If you or someone you care about is addicted to drugs or alcohol, you should know that you are not alone.

Whether the substance of abuse is alcohol, prescription meds, meth or another drug, addiction ruins lives.
