Connecticut is in a position to be a major drug transit and destination point due to its location. Also, communities along Interstate 95 are especially vulnerable to drug-related traffic and activities.

The drug overdose rate in Connecticut is reportedly worse than the national average.  In fact,  last year there were more than 25 overdose deaths per 100,000 people.  The state ranks in the top 10 in the nation for illicit drug dependence among 18 to 25-year-old adults.  Overall, the state saw a 76% increase in drug-related deaths from 1999 to 2013.  In 2015, the number of overdose deaths rose to 723, and the numbers continue to rise.

Several measures are proposed by Governor Dan Malloy to address the prescription drug crisis. He called for a "common sense approach” and had this to say about the issue:

"We have to treat addiction like a public health issue, not a crime. Connecticut is taking a stand against a nationwide prescription opioid and heroin overdose epidemic to become a leader in combating opioid and heroin use, preventing drug addiction and overdoses."

The state also receives grants from the federal government that are targeted for prevention and education programs such as the PDMP (Prescription Drug Monitoring Program),  among many others.
