Drug And Alcohol Abuse In Pembroke Pines, Florida

Broward County, home to Pembroke Pines, Florida and other cities, struggles with drug abuse. Drugs like synthetic and prescription opioids, cocaine, and marijuana, are commonly abused in Broward County, with Pembroke Pines being no exception. More adolescents under 18 use used marijuana in Broward County when compared to other drugs. Additionally, synthetic cathinones, like Flakka, were popular in previous years.  Youth alcohol abuse is high, and adult benzodiazepine use is increasing. Lastly, cocaine use has increased from previous years, and it is now often combined with opioids like heroin and other types of drugs.

Like many major American cities, Pembroke Pines endures an ongoing battle with the opioid epidemic. Broward County endured “582 opioid overdoses” in 2016, 90% of which were the result of heroin abuse. By 2017, this number increased drastically. Broward County treated 1,642 opioid-related overdoses, with “85% being heroin overdoses.” Several opioid-related overdoses included non-prescription fentanyl, and heroin-fentanyl drug combinations (called polydrug use).

Aside from heroin, many who abuse opioids take prescription opioids for pain relief. Due to their ability to calm the mind and body, people find drugs like oxycodone, methadone, and hydrocodone highly addicting. Broward County found prescription and illicit opioids present in 8,162 deceased people in 2016.

Heroin is one of the strongest opioids commonly abused. Heroin is a cheaper and stronger alternative to many prescription drugs on the market.  It is also one of the most dangerous, posing lethal consequences.

Often times, people become exposed to heroin through as a result of dependence on prescription opioids.
