The Opioid Epidemic In Santa Fe

Prescription and illicit Opioids have a heavy hold on many of Santa Fe’s population. Drugs like Methadone and Morphine are commonly prescribed to combat extreme pain from serious injuries. Unfortunately, many of these drugs are over-prescribed by medical professionals or abused by patients. Fentanyl is a highly abused synthetic Opioid far more potent that Morphine and takes merely 2 to 3 milligrams to be potentially fatal. More recently, Fentanyl is being combined with other drugs like Cocaine or Heroin increasing both the potency and lethality of both.

According to recent data, prescription Opioids are to largely blame for the surge in accidental overdose deaths in New Mexico. Of the 88% of accidental fatalities statewide, 46% were linked to prescription painkillers like Methadone, Oxycodone, and Morphine. The next biggest contributor is Heroin accounting for 34%.
