Drug And Alcohol Addiction In New Haven, Connecticut

New Haven currently suffers a public health emergency as rates of drug overdoses have dramatically increased. In 2016, Connecticut saw more drug-related deaths per 100,000 people than the rest of the country. The state is fighting an ongoing battle with alcohol and various drugs, concerning many public officials.

Like many other states in the country, Connecticut is suffering from the Opioid epidemic; in 2020, 1,247 people died of a drug overdose where the vast majority were linked to Fentanyl or Fentanyl-analogs, a deadly Opioid 100 times more powerful than Morphine. Over a third of those deaths took place in New Haven County.

While there are limited treatment facilities in the immediate area, there are many in surrounding regions that specialize in various forms of addiction and abuse rehab and recovery services.

Synthetic Marijuana Overdoses In New Haven

Only a few years ago in 2018, New Haven saw a record-breaking number of K2-induced overdoses in one day. K2 is a synthetic Cannabinoid that is occasionally laced with Fentanyl. Like Marijuana, Spice gives users a hallucinogenic high, due to the presence of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The substance is man-made; a mixture of plant material sprayed with psychoactive chemicals, it typically resembles potpourri and is usually labeled “not for human consumption.” Perhaps the biggest danger of K2 is its legality; it is available at many gas stations and smoke shops, making it all too easy to access and abuse. Furthermore, when combined with other drugs, K2 proves to be very dangerous, hence the high overdose rates.

Signs Of Opioid Abuse In New Haven

Although K2 mixed with Opioids like Fentanyl is a commonly abused substance in New Haven, individuals who experience non-fatal overdoses can easily become dependent on Opioids. Opioid overdoses are common in the state of Connecticut, outnumbering deaths by gunshot and car accidents. In 2018, 25% of adults surveyed in the greater New Haven area knew someone who died of an overdose, with Opioids as the overwhelmingly most common perpetrator between the years of 2016 and 2020.

Above all, discovering the signs of abuse for prescription and synthetic Opioids like Oxycodone, Morphine, Heroin, or Fentanyl can save a life. Often, Opioid abuse begins with prescription drugs. An individual may battle severe injuries needing medication.They may develop a tolerance for the substance and transition into cheaper, illicit substances. Common physical signs of Opioid abuse include:

  • Nausea
  • Hypotension
  • Slowed heart rate
  • Slowed breathing
  • Sweating
  • Increased craving
  • Small pupils

Behavioral signs include:

  • Isolation
  • Missing school or work
  • Spending time with people who use Opioids
  • No longer participating in former activities
  • Appearing withdrawn or listless
  • Mood swings
