Colorado Drug Rehab....Telluride, Colorado
Telluride is similar to Vail, Aspen and many of the other Colorado ski communities in appearance and in their alcohol and drug abuse problems. With ample disposable cash in the hands of young vacationers, the ground work is perfect for the sale of "recreational drugs" and as is mentioned in the pages on Vail and Breckenridge, it is very difficult to raise the awareness of bar and restaurant owners in the importance of not using alcohol as a marketing incentive. Colorado Drug Rehab has worked in prevention efforts in Vail, Breckenridge, Eagle, Alamosa, Druango and many other communities that have similar demographics and progress has been made by minor changes in attitudes.
Telluride is the home of Sheriff Bill Masters who has written a book on the futility of the war on drugs. Fifty Billion Dollars have been spent since Nixon first started the war on drug and the outcome is obvious to anyone that has been in the field for that period of time. Substance abuse, addiction, and treatment availability are worse today then they were in the 1970's. Most of the money went to interdiction efforts in South America and other military activities that probably had other agenda than helping save the lives of our addicted citizens. You can get an interesting education on a very important point of view by reading "Drug War Addiction" by Sheriff Bill Masters.

Colorado Drug Situation*
Cocaine is considered a significant drug threat to Colorado. Powder cocaine is readily available throughout the State and crack cocaine is available in urban population areas. Cocaine is the drug most often associated with violent crime in the State. Cocaine is generally sold in ounce and pound quantities in Colorado. Crack use is declining but remains available in the larger metropolitan areas of Colorado.
Club drugs, which are mostly synthetic substances, are increasing in availability and use in Colorado. LSD in liquid form is readily available in the metropolitan areas of Colorado. During 2001, 34% of those surveyed in Colorado reported lifetime usage of MDMA. 4.5% of those surveyed reported usage of MDMA within the past 30 days. The average user age was 17.3, and the average age of first time use was 15.9 years.
Heroin - The most common types of heroin available in Colorado are Mexican black tar heroin and brown powdered heroin. New heroin users in Colorado are often young adults who smoke or snort the drug rather than inject it. This is due to a misconception that this practice is safer and less likely to lead to addiction.
Marijuana is readily available in multi-pound quantities throughout Colorado . A highly potent form of marijuana, called "BC Bud," is also easily obtainable.
Methamphetamine is a primary drug threat to Colorado. Crystal methamphetamine, also known as glass in Colorado, is becoming increasingly available throughout the State and has tested as high as 90% pure. Purity levels for methamphetamine vary in Colorado.
Prescription Drugs - The diversion and abuse of OxyContin (oxycodone) is a significant problem in Colorado. Hydrocodone (Vicodin) and Darvocet are the most commonly abused controlled substances.
