The Opioid Epidemic in Burlington

Although Vermont has a lower rate of fatal drug overdoses than all the other states in New England, the city of Burlington still faces challenges with the national opioid epidemic. In 2017, 104 people in Vermont lost their lives to drug overdoses, and 75 Vermonters died after suffering a drug overdose in the first six months of 2018. Most fatal overdoses in Vermont involve at least one opioid. The number of fatal overdoses on fentanyl, an opioid which is even more potent than heroin, has risen greatly since 2014. In fact, fentanyl was the cause of 68 of the 104 lethal overdoses in 2017 in Vermont.

In recent years, the number of deaths in Burlington involving heroin has also increased as drug traffickers continue to bring the carry the dangerous opioid into the city. In 2016, the Burlington Police Department arrested a man carrying 2,500 bags of heroin. The trafficker received a long prison sentence in 2018 and admitted to bringing at least 10,000 bags of heroin into Burlington and Vermont during the months which preceded his arrest.

Nevertheless, in 2017, 34% of high school students in Burlington and Chittenden County used marijuana frequently.

Progress in Burlington

Although the challenges of drug and alcohol abuse in Burlington are serious, the people and law enforcement of Burlington have made progress in the fight against addiction and drug trafficking. Vermont has integrated a network of doctors and recovery centers into a “hub-and-spokes model” for helping people overcome drug addiction. Vermont has the highest capacity in the United States for treating Americans who are struggling with substance abuse, and in 2015, almost 3,000 people were undergoing treatment for addiction to alcohol or drugs in Chittenden County. In Vermont, while the police continue working to confiscate illegal drugs from distributors, “Good Samaritan laws” legally protect anyone who calls the police to report an overdose. The Vermont Department of Health is also dispensing a medication which reverses the effects of overdoses called naloxone (also known as Narcan) through a program called the Opioid Overdose Prevention and Reversal Project. The city of Burlington may even soon open a supervised injection facility to help residents who are addicted to heroin.
