Drug Addiction In Tampa

Like most of Florida, Tampa grapples with drug and alcohol use, concerning many state officials. Opioid use is still a challenge for both sufferers and state and local officials who want to find solutions to the leading public health concern. 90% of the most sought-after opioid-prescribing doctors reside in Florida, with thousands of painkillers prescribed each day to patients.  By 2010, Florida doctors prescribed 10 times more oxycodone pills than any other state in the nation combined.

Hillsborough County, where Tampa is located, is one of the areas of Florida most affected by drug abuse. In 2011, 18 local residents died of heroin overdose. Other drugs, especially legal prescription drugs, are increasingly abused. Cocaine was responsible for killing 35 of Hillsborough County residents in 2011, methadone for 81, oxycodone for 114, hydrocodone for 16, morphine for 31 and Xanax for 108. Prescription drugs totaled 364 deaths in 2011 in Hillsborough County.

Between 2005 and 2010, 13% of people in the Tampa area used illicit drugs, compared to the 14% national average. 10% of Hillsborough residents used marijuana, consistent with the national average.

Alcohol is also the most commonly used substance among Tampa high school students, who often combine it with marijuana or prescribed drugs.

In 2005, 5% of Hillsborough people were heavy drinkers, compared to 6% of Floridians. In 2005, 14% of Hillsborough natives binge drank, which matched the Florida average. By 2010, these numbers rose to 15% in tampa, while the state average decreased to 13%.

Alcohol use is sadly common among middle and high school students in Hillsborough County. In 2006, 36% of middle schoolers and 65% of high schooler used alcohol. By 2010, 30% of middle schoolers and 69% of high schoolers used alcohol. These rates dropped slightly by 2012, when 28% of middle schoolers and 60% of high schoolers reported using alcohol.
