Since New Hampshire is one of the smallest states in the U.S., we could assume it has fewer problems with drugs and alcohol. But, just as every other state, large or small, the substance abuse epidemic is just as prevalent here. New Hampshire is a favorite tourist spot because it is home to some of the largest ski mountains on the East Coast. Visitors come to the state by the thousands to enjoy the variety of winter sports. In fact, as many as 8.5 million tourists are expected to visit the state next fall. With all this tourist traffic in and out of the state comes increased opportunities for illicit drugs to be smuggled into the area.
In New Hampshire, drug overdose deaths increased two and a half times since 2011. In 2015, more than 400 people died from overdoses. Most of these were opioid-related. To get a different perspective on the situation in this state, let’s compare some figures. For instance, in 2015 New Hampshire’s synthetic opiate deaths were eight times more than the national average. It also had more synthetic opioid deaths (285) than California (229), despite the fact that there are 30 times more people in California.
Of course, opioids are only a small part of the overall substance abuse issues in New Hampshire. Here is a brief breakdown of some of the other drugs that are creating problems in the state:
About 27 people die per month from an overdose in New Hampshire.
New Hampshire ranks among the highest in the U.S. for illicit drug use.
Fentanyl was a factor in about two-thirds of the opioid deaths to date.
In 2015, 80.8% of overdose deaths were heroin or fentanyl-related.
ER visits for heroin-related issues were 76% greater than in 2014.
About 26% of 18 to 25-year-olds reported using marijuana in the past month.
80% of state-funded treatment admissions for 12 to 17-year-olds were for marijuana dependence.
About 29.9% of 12 to 20-year-olds reported drinking alcohol in the past 30 days.
New Hampshire ranks second in the nation for binge drinking among 12 to 20-year-olds.
Many agencies, organizations, and individuals in New Hampshire are working under the direction of the Governor’s office to alleviate the substance-related problems in their state. Their goal is to raise awareness about the dangers of substance abuse, expand the availability of naloxone, and increase the availability of treatment programs.
