Substance Abuse in New York
New York has an unfortunate reputation for drug trafficking. The state has many ethnic groups, an accessible coastline, several highways and international airports. As a result, New York is a haven for drug traffickers, where drugs can be found in every region.
About one million New Yorkers reported illicit drug use in 2010, since then the numbers have increased. New York has a higher percentage of illicit drug use, excluding marijuana, at about 9.1 percent than the national rate of 8.5 percent.
Treatment admissions for New York drug rehabs show heroin, opiates, marijuana and cocaine are the most common cited drugs.
Prescription Drug Abuse
Prescription drug abuse is widespread throughout the state. Counterfeit pills often enter the state from Mexican drug cartels and the Canadian border, creating easy access.
Addiction to prescription painkillers such as oxycodone (OxyContin, Percocet) and hydrocodone (Vicodin) are the most common. Benzos, which are sedatives prescribed for anxiety, also pose a threat as they are commonly abused with opiates and alcohol.
New York State has such an illicit drug problem, New York rehab centers reported that there were 89,269 cases of opiate and heroin treatment admissions in 2013. Because of the chemical similarity between the two, about 80 percent of first-time heroin users began using prescription painkillers before they turned to heroin.
Heroin Addiction in New York
Other Commonly Abused Drugs
Marijuana - Marijuana is still the most common illicit drug used by nearly 730,000 New Yorkers or 12 percent annually. While there has been a steady increase in marijuana use by middle-aged people, about 30 percent of people who use marijuana the most are young people age 18 to 25 years old. Most of the marijuana comes from Mexico. Synthetic marijuana such as K2 and Spice are readily available on the black market.
Crack Cocaine - Large quantities of cocaine also enter New York. It is then transported across the state and to other parts of the country. Addiction to crack cocaine has long been a problem, especially in New York City, where poverty and crime is more prevalent.
