Rhode Island is the smallest state in the U. S. geographically. It is only about 48 miles long and 37 miles across with a 1,545 square mile area. It is a state known for its gorgeous beaches and the mansions and ships of Newport. Unfortunately, Rhode Island has also become home to a rampant drug problem among its residents.
The northeastern portion of the United States has become notorious for its opioid epidemic. Rhode Island borders on the state of Massachusetts, which had 1,574 confirmed deaths due to overdoses in 2015. Cities in Rhode Island such as Providence, Cranston, Warwick, Pawtucket, and Woonsocket boast the highest rates of drug abuse and overdoses. Many of the opioid deaths occurring in Rhode Island can be attributed to the influx of fentanyl. Fentanyl is used by drug dealers to cut heroin, and is 30 to 50 times stronger than heroin, resulting in many hospitalizations and deaths. The drug trade occurring in Rhode Island is primarily due to gang activity, like the Bloods, Crips, or Latin Kings.
While illegal drug use is a huge problem in Rhode Island, alcohol abuse is an equally troublesome issue. Rhode Island ranks third in the nation for death caused by alcohol poisoning. The alcohol problem in the state may be due to its high unemployment rate. It ranks fourth in the country in unemployment.
Rhode Island is a densely populated state and has many treatment options to combat addiction. The state has many programs which dispense methadone, however, another common medication used to treat addiction, called buprenorphine, is not dispensed in rehab facilities in the state.
