    Addiction in Corpus Christi

    At just over 325,000 people Corpus Christi, Texas, contains 90% of the population of Nueces County. Despite this being far fewer people than the millions living between San Antonio, Houston, Dallas, and Austin, there is a greater concentration of opioid deaths per capita within Nueces County.

    Deaths by Opioids in Corpus Christi

    In 2015, Corpus Christi and Nueces County experienced 36 deaths that involved opioids. That means that there were 10.4 deaths per 100,000 people. By comparison, despite there being more actual deaths in Bexar and Harris Counties, the rates per 100,000 people were only 5.9 and 5.2 respectively.

    The state death rate from opioids in 2015 was only 4.3 per 100,000 people, leess than half that of Nueces County. To put this in perspective, if the death rate of Corpus Christi and Nueces County was applied to the rest of Texas, there would have been 2,855 deaths, as opposed to the actual 1,174.

    This doesn’t just impact the people who have become addicted, be it through illicit or prescription opioids, but children as well. A lawsuit being filed against opioid manufacturers in Corpus Christie states that Nueces County is regularly in the top five counties for newborns that are hospitalized with symptoms of opioid withdrawal. These are infants that have developed an addiction while still in the womb and will need costly medical care to not only survive infancy but go on to live functional lives.

    Drug Arrests in Corpus Christi

    From 2009 to 2011, while the State rate of drug abuse violations fell 9.1%, it increased in Nueces County by 2.96%. That brought the total up to 11.82 per 1,000 people, or over 4,000 people. Given this increase, it is fair to say that drug traffic increased as well. Meaning that there is a growing chance of people developing an addiction to some form of opioid.

    Prescription Opioids and Heroin in Corpus Christi

    People hear overdose and tend to think of heroin. However, a majority of the cases across the country and the state of Texas are actually from prescription opioids. In fact, it was only in 2015 that the number of deaths from heroin and prescribed opioids nearly tied, with a difference of 516 to 517, respectively. There is slight overlap in these two categories, as well other synthetic opioids, but the majority seem to be exclusive of each other.

    Finding Help in Corpus Christi

    Coming forward about an addition, be it for you or a loved one, is a hard first step to make. However, with the rampant growth in deaths from opioids, it is more important than ever to face the situation. If you know someone who suffers from addiction, but don’t know how to approach it, then you may want the help of an interventionist. If you are the one suffering from an addiction but don’t know what to say or have anyone to talk to, then reach out to a dedicated treatment specialist. They are available 24/7 to answer any questions you may have and even help you find a treatment center that fits your needs.
