When we think of New York, we envision the most famous city in the world, New York City. But, the state itself has much more to offer than this one popular tourist destination. Residents and tourists alike enjoy an array of mountain ranges, hiking trails, waterfalls, and gardens throughout the state that rivals any.
Of course, New York City is a hub for numerous drug trafficking organizations, and their illicit activities leach out of the city and spread to neighboring communities. Leaving a trail of crime and death in their wake, these DTO’s have imposed an epidemic of suffering across the entire state.
The city makes up over 40% of the entire state’s population. This massive and diverse population creates a demand for drugs that the drug cartels are happy to meet. One of the most pervasive drug problems in the state today is heroin abuse. Stricter controls and high costs of prescription opiates contributed to the heroin problem. Many people have switched from the costly prescription drugs to the cheaper alternative, heroin.
Addiction Statistics in New York
But, heroin isn’t the only drug that is creating problems in the state. Let’s take a look at some of the other substances people are abusing in New York today.
- About 24% of admissions for treatment involved alcohol addiction.
- More than 1.1 million New Yorkers struggle with alcohol dependence problems.
- Alcohol was a factor in 7,849 vehicle accidents in the state in 2015.
- About 5,499 overdose deaths between 2013 and 2015 were opioid-related.
- Heroin was involved in 825 of the overdose deaths in 2014.
- Prescription opioid deaths quadrupled between 2005 and 2014.
- In 2014, 1,008 deaths from prescription opioid overdoses were reported.
- ER visits for cocaine complications increased by 36% in five years.
- Primary treatment admissions for marijuana represent one-quarter of all admissions.
- Meth was involved in 576 admissions for treatment in the state last year.
After viewing these shocking statistics, we must wonder what is being done in New York to bring these numbers down and save lives. Here are just a few examples:
- Between 2016-2017 the state received $25 million in local assistance and $10 million in capital projects to develop and expand treatment programs, prevention, and housing services for heroin and opiate addicts.
- In 2016, the federal government granted $7.3 million to increase access to medically assisted opioid treatment.
- OASAS (Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services) provided $2 million for fifty more residential treatment beds.
- The state has enacted the Prescription Drug Monitoring Act. This act requires physicians to check the registry before prescribing controlled substances for patients. Pharmacists also have access to the registry.
In March of 2017, Mayor de Blasio had this to say about the situation in his state:
“Each year, we’re driving down the number,” Mr. de Blasio said at the news conference announcing the plan. “Every single year that number should be going down.”
