Addiction in Massachusetts

Massachusetts, known as the Bay State, sits in the New England region of the United States.  It is the 7th smallest state in the nation. But, despite its size, Massachusetts is struggling with massive drug-related issues. In fact, the opioid-related death rate in this state surpasses the national average. The last two years have seen a significant increase in the number of deaths.

The fatal overdose rates in Massachusetts were more than double the national average in 2014.  Part of the reason could be attributed to the fact that more than 272,900 people (4.0% of the population) received opioid prescriptions from July to September 2017. Also, people switching from prescription drugs to heroin because of the price have contributed to the death toll.  These statistics continue to rise with each passing year, not only in Massachusetts but around the entire globe.

Addiction Statistics in Massachusetts

Comprehending the vastness of the overdose death epidemic is difficult. In America alone, about 65,000 people died of drug overdoses last year. That’s almost impossible to imagine. But, with a global population of over 7.6 billion, these numbers seem small in comparison. So, if we look at the numbers broken down by the drug of choice, maybe we can gain a more realistic viewpoint.  For instance, this is how the situation looks in Massachusetts today: 

  • In the first 9 months of 2017, 932 people died from opioid-related overdoses.
  • About  5.8% of treatment admissions last year were for opioid abuse.
  • Almost one-half of the opioid-related deaths involved heroin.
  • Heroin was the drug of choice for 53% of treatment admissions last year.
  • More than 13.75 kilos of meth valued at $4.2 million were seized by federal agents in Massachusetts.
  • About 14.55% of residents smoke marijuana.  It was cited as the drug of choice for 4.0% of the people admitted for treatment last year.
  • More than 104,200 people entered treatment for addictions in Massachusetts last year.
  • Alcohol was cited as the drug of choice in 31.9% of the treatment admissions.
  • Of the 104,233 treatment admissions, 3.4% were for cocaine or crack cocaine abuse.

Most likely, none of these individuals intended to become addicts. With this in mind, thousands of individuals and organizations across the country are working to expand prevention and awareness programs. Find out about some of these programs below.

Local Prevention and Education Programs

The best way to bring down those shocking numbers above is to keep people from ever starting to experiment with drugs or alcohol.  Educating our young people about the dangers involved is a good start. Also, involving kids in healthy, creative venues for spending time can have a positive impact.  Some of the groups and organizations engaged in promoting these objectives are as follows:
