Recent government reports indicate what addiction professionals already know: drug abuse is on the rise. This upsurge in drug use comes from nontraditional sources.

Advancements in chemical engineering allow for the creation of synthetic versions of marijuana and opiates. Some substances are frequently marketed as bath salts or plant food and are available in retail outlets in our community. The legislature has prohibited the sale and use of these synthetic drugs.
