    Drug and Alcohol Addiction in Fort Wayne

    Fort Wayne is a city in northeastern Indiana that reported 740 overdoses between January and July of 2017. Compared to 2016 in the same city, there were only 365 overdoses. The police department says the increase can be attributed to the low cost of drugs like heroin and dangerous additives like carfentanil and fentanyl.

    In 2014, Allen County, home to Fort Wayne, surpassed the national average for fatal drug overdoses with 17 per 100,000. The numbers rose again in 2015 from 46 total deaths in 2014, to 54.

    Opioid Addiction in Fort Wayne

    With an increase in opioid prescriptions by doctors and poor monitoring of those patients, people who become addicted to these medications have begun shopping for doctors to give them opioids. When they can no longer access doctors, they turn to street drugs. Allen County Superior Court Judge Fran Gull has seen heroin diminish in years past but says it’s has been making a comeback over the last 4 or 5 years. It’s more potent than ever because of the fentanyl and Carfentanil additives.

    In 2016, a raid by the Drug Enforcement Administration revealed a local pain management doctor named Michael Cozzi was responsible for the most controlled substance prescriptions in the state of Indiana. His license was under an emergency suspension. Another Fort Wayne pain management doctor named William Hedrick also made the news for his questionable prescribing practices. He currently faces criminal charges in Delaware county and several wrongful death cases in Allen County. His license has also been suspended.

    Treating Addiction in Fort Wayne

    Officials in Fort Wayne recently spoke about placing a 100-bed treatment facility in a vacant Verizon office on the northeast side, but plans were halted after residents expressed concerns over safety and property values.

    In 2017,  Governor Eric Holcomb took steps to make it easier for pharmacists to see if patients are being over-prescribed medicine. The statewide system INSPECT is being upgraded so that with one click doctors, as well as pharmacists can see a person’s medical history and when their prescriptions will run out. Indiana is the 7th state to use this software. Although this cannot stop doctors who are over-prescribing knowingly, state leaders in the other 6 states with similar programs have seen significant decreases in prescribed opioids.
