    Addiction in Elk Grove

    While Elk Grove’s crisis may seem small, its rate of death from drugs is much higher than the average in California. Within Sacramento County, the death rate from drug use was at 6.49 per 100,000 people in 2000, a relatively low number given the sheer number of deaths the U.S. experiences on a daily basis. However, that number nearly tripled to 15.41 by 2007. This made it higher than the state’s average from 2002 on. Growing higher still, the number of deaths from drug use alone averaged at 18.3 deaths per 100,000 people from 2014 to 2016. In this same amount of time, deaths from alcohol were fairly stable, keeping at a death rate to just over 11 per 100,000 people from 2000 to 2007.

    The Impact of Opioids in Elk Grove

    While many states, counties, and cities are facing a threat from opioids, the opioid crisis in Elk Grove and Sacramento County is fairly small compared to the impact of other drugs. In 2017, only 61 people died from opioids across the entire county. Given that Sacramento County is home to over 1.5 million people, 61 does not seem like a high number. However, as of 2017, there were 1.1 million opioid prescriptions going around the county. It is impossible to say how many prescriptions are going to any one person, or how many of these are recurring, but with that many going around, many cases are a ticking-time bomb ready to go off. Even if people aren’t dying, which should always be positive, there are literally thousands of people who are more likely to become addicted.

    Fake Norco in Elk Grove

    In 2016, a pill that was being distributed in Sacramento County killed 7 people and left 28 either sick or hospitalized. This pill, which dealers disguised to look like the prescription pill Norco, was actually fentanyl. Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is 100 times more potent than morphine.

    A big cause of the surge of opioid-related deaths that have been rising is the prominence of fentanyl. Not only is the opioid becoming more available, but dealers are actually using it to cut their cost. Given the drug’s potency and low cost to make, a dealer is able to sell people other opioids cut with fentanyl to make a greater profit. However, given how potent the drug is, it is very easy for a dealer to unintentionally give a customer a fatal dose. It is also possible that someone takes more fentanyl by mistake, because they try to take their usual dose without the knowledge of the presence of fentanyl.
