Substance Abuse in Pennsylvania
For the first time in 2011, drug-related deaths in Pennsylvania topped 2,000 and have risen since. With close proximity to other metro areas such as Washington D.C., Baltimore, Boston and New York City, drug trafficking into the state remains at a high level.
Locally produced marijuana, secret methamphetamine laboratories and thefts of prescription pain medications continue to plague the state and pose a challenge to law enforcement and medical professionals.
Prescription Drug Abuse
Prescription drug abuse in Pennsylvania is an epidemic. According to the latest report, Pennsylvania has the 14th highest drug overdose mortality rate in the United States with about 15.3 per 100,000 people suffering from drug overdose fatalities.
Approximately two-thirds of the overdoses are from prescription drugs, with illicit drugs accounting for about a third of the overdose mortality rate. Prescription painkillers (opiates) and anxiety pills (benzos) are the most commonly abused prescription drugs including:
With the increase in prescription drug addiction, illegal sales of prescription drugs, doctor shopping, and robberies have risen. Although there is a prescription drug-monitoring program, law enforcement and medical professionals are finding it a challenge to prevent pill shopping and theft.
Skyrocketing Heroin Use
Heroin-related deaths have skyrocketed in Pennsylvania in recent years. Since heroin is a cheaper alternative to more expensive prescription drugs, it is easily accessible and more commonly used. Between 2009 and 2013, there were about 3,000 heroin-related deaths in the state.
As drug trafficking surges, Mexican black tar heroin and synthetic heroin continues to be distributed all across the state. In 2013, police seized 55 million dollars worth in illegal drugs in Pennsylvania. So far, in the second quarter of 2014 alone, police seized nearly 20 million dollars worth of heroin.
As more and more people abuse heroin, treatment admissions for heroin are steadily rising in drug rehabs in Pennsylvania. If you are seeking treatment for prescription drug abuse or heroin abuse, please don’t hesitate to reach out to admissions counselors by calling (215) 298-9732. We’re available 24/7.
Other Commonly Used Drugs
Crystal meth. Methamphetamine is popular because of its longer lasting high and low price. The “one pot” homemade method of producing meth is catching on and thus causing frequent meth lab explosions.
Cocaine. Cocaine use has not decreased in Pennsylvania, despite the higher price and decreased potency of the product. The cocaine market is big business in Pennsylvania. In the inner cities, the use of crack cocaine often goes hand in hand with alcohol addiction and heroin abuse.
Club Drugs. The popularity of club drugs is on the rise in Pennsylvania. The most abused club drug is MDMA (ecstasy), but GHB, LSD, PCP and ketamine are also used, especially by teenagers and college students. The drugs are cheap which means that they are accessible to young people. Much of the supply of MDMA (ecstasy) comes into Pennsylvania from Canada.
