Prescription Drug Addiction in New Hampshire
Prescription drug abuse is now a public health concern. With a sharp spike in doctors prescribing OxyContin and other opioids, prescription drug abuse has skyrocketed.
Over the last ten years, prescription drug addiction has increased 500 percent. According to the Center for Disease Control, New Hampshire now ranks as the third highest prescription rate in the nation and ranks no. 7 for the use of high-dose opioid pain relievers.
The most commonly abused prescription drugs in the state include prescription painkillers and benzodiazepines such as:
With one out of four teens having abused prescription drugs before the age of 15, opiate abuse among teens in New Hampshire is also a huge concern. Not only are teens more likely to overdose, but opiate addiction can quickly lead to the use of harder drugs such as heroin.
Heroin Addiction Treatment
Heroin use in New Hampshire has been increasing over the past twenty years. Most of the heroin is trafficked into the state from Boston and New York. While it has primarily been concentrated in the urban areas, heroin is all over the state.
From 2012 to 2014, heroin-related deaths more than doubled, with about 64 people having died in 2013 alone. Heroin abuse has become such an epidemic that New Hampshire rehab centers reported a 90 percent rise in admissions for heroin.
Other Commonly Abused Drugs
Marijuana use is significantly higher than the national average. About 27 percent of people 12 and older reported marijuana use in the past month. This is twice the national average at 10.7 percent. Although it’s common for people to believe they can’t get addicted to marijuana, about 1 in 6 people will become addicted.
Alcohol use and binge drinking in New Hampshire is also higher than the national rate. New Hampshire ranked no. 3 in the nation for alcohol use among youth aged 12-17 in the past month, which is actually higher than the national average at about 73.2 percent versus 61 percent.
Cocaine is available throughout New Hampshire as the majority of the drug enters the state from Massachusetts, New York, Chicago, Florida and Texas. Once cocaine comes into the state it is converted into crack cocaine and then sold on the streets.
Methamphetamine is not as prevalent in New Hampshire as in other nearby states. The one-pot method – the homemade method of creating crystal meth – is common all over the state. It consists of mixing and cooking chemicals and lithium batteries into a bottle, usually a two-liter bottle. It’s much faster than the traditional way of creating meth but still extremely dangerous because they often explode.
Club drugs have steadily increased in New Hampshire. The drugs enter New Hampshire from Canada, New York and Boston. MDMA (ecstasy), GHB, PCP, LSD and ketamine (special K) are popular at rave parties and nightclubs. As in other states, the club drug problem is magnified in communities with a college or university.
