Commonly Abused Drugs in Connecticut
Alcohol is the most commonly abused drug in Connecticut. At rehab centers in Connecticut, close to half of all treatment admissions in 2009 consisted of individuals who abused just alcohol or alcohol and other drugs.
Prescription and Illicit Opiates
Like many other states, Connecticut has experienced an uptick in prescription drug abuse since the late ‘90s. The number of overdose deaths in Connecticut reached a 10-year high in 2013, largely because of prescription opioids (painkillers), such as OxyContin and Vicodin.
With new laws in place like the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP), which was enacted in 2013, prescription pills have become less accessible. More and more Connecticut residents who are hooked on prescription pain meds continue to switch to a lower-cost, higher-potency alternative — heroin.
Heroin is now the second most commonly abused of all documented drugs in Connecticut. It is also the most commonly abused illicit drug in the state.
Marijuana is the second most abused illicit drug among those admitted to treatment in Connecticut, according to the 2009 Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS).
Cocaine abuse rates in Connecticut were higher in 2006 than the national rate. Also, cocaine abuse has steadily risen in the state since 2003.
The TEDS for 2009 revealed that a majority of Connecticut residents who sought treatment for cocaine were smoking the drug versus injecting or snorting it. This method increases a user’s chances of becoming addicted because it reaches the brain faster compared to other methods of administration.
Club drugs - Club drugs are popular among teens, young adults, and businesspeople who wish to find an escape from their hectic daily lives. Some of the most common club drugs in Connecticut are MDMA (“Molly”), LSD (“acid”) and GHB.
Like other illegal substances, club drugs are not regulated; therefore, what a dealer calls ecstasy may actually be a mixture of caffeine, ketamine, and a small amount of MDMA, for example. Oftentimes, these mixtures, which are created to extend a dealer’s supply and profit, are extremely hazardous to human health and sometimes even deadly.
Synthetic drugs - Fake weed is one of the most popular synthetic drugs due to easy access. The synthetic THC found in products like Spice and K2 consists of man-made chemicals which are sprayed on plant matter.
Most synthetic drugs (e.g. bath salts and N-bomb) are more potent than the drugs they mimic and often send users to the emergency room. Unfortunately, some families have even lost their loved ones to synthetic drugs.
The Treatment Center provides treatment for prescription drug abuse, alcoholism, and drug addiction.
