Abilene, like most cities in Texas and actually throughout the U.S. where treatments have been mostly disappointing to their clients and the famlies that invest in them. The experience of shopping for alcohol or drug treatment is much like buying a used car, with many frustrations and few wins.

As a rule of thumb, it is always better to do residential treatment away from one's home and familiar contacts. Everyone knows the feeling of relief that comes when you take a vacation away from your area. Someone getting help at home will feel constrained and inhabited both consciously and unconsciously. It is found that those who only change their location will give a patient better outcomes, even if nothing else is changed.

Mexican black tar heroin is the most prevalent form of heroin available in Abilene and surrounding areas. Heroin is plentiful in the larger cities where three to four balloons of good quality heroin sell for under $25. It's hard to believe that heroin is prevalent in Abilene, but if you talk to anyone that is using it in your city, you will see that getting it isn't a problem as long as you have the money and somehow, those addicted to heroin find the money to get their next fix.

Methamphetamine has lately been a huge problem in rural communities in Texas from meth labs imported from Mexico. The imported meth or crystal meth rages in purity from 9% to 26%.
