Rhode Island is a New England state. Although it’s the smallest state and the eighth least populated in the United States, it still has its share of illicit drug use and drug trafficking.
Rhode Island was ranked no. 1 in the nation for illicit drug use, non-medical use of prescription painkillers and overdose deaths in 2012. Thousands of Rhode Islanders have turned to cocaine, heroin, and prescription drug abuse.
However, there is hope for you or your loved one who may be struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction.

Substance Abuse in Rhode Island
Although Rhode Island is a small state by area and population, 13.21 percent of Rhode Islanders reported illicit drug use in the past month, above the national average that was recently reported at 8.82 percent.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the number of people who have died from drug overdoses has doubled the number of people killed in motor vehicle accidents in Rhode Island in recent years.
Prescription drugs and heroin are the most commonly abused drugs, along with marijuana and alcohol. Underage drinking is common among young people ages 12-20, with 36.1 percent of past-month alcohol use and 23.8 percent of past-month binge drinking.
Prescription Drug Abuse Epidemic
The abuse of prescription pain medications is on the rise in Rhode Island. The most widely used prescription painkiller is OxyContin. However, a prescription painkiller used in anesthesia, known as fentanyl, is 80 times more powerful than morphine and becoming a threat to the state.
About 360,000 Rhode Islanders or more than one third of the entire population of the state filled prescriptions for controlled substances in 2013. What’s more concerning is that 1,400 Rhode Islanders obtained drugs from five or more prescribers and pharmacies.
Although there have been efforts to curb doctor shopping via a Prescription Drug Monitoring Program, there has still been a spike in prescription forgeries, pharmacy robberies, and online pill purchases.
Consequently, when more expensive prescription pills are not available, many people turn to heroin, which is cheaper and more powerful.
Treatment for Heroin Addiction
Since heroin is the cheaper alternative, more and more people are overdosing on the drug. Heroin is actually the most cited drug for admissions in Rhode Island rehab centers. Fentanyl-laced heroin is becoming a bit of a public health crisis throughout the Northeast.
Fentanyl-laced heroin is 50-100 times more potent than heroin. It has been linked to half of the 91 overdose deaths in Rhode Island since the beginning of 2014. Overdose deaths from the drug are also on the rise in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and other New England states.
While other drugs like marijuana and alcohol are common, the focus has primarily been on the alarming overdose rates for both opioid and heroin users. Many emergency responders are now equipped with Narcan (Naloxone) to reverse opioid overdoses.
