The Impact of Addiction in Connecticut

Connecticut Drug and Alcohol Treatment Centers

Connecticut is frequently ignored in favor of its flashier New England counterpart. It was the first planned city in the USA, and Mark Twain was living in Hartford. The Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art is the oldest public art museum in the United States. Historic towns like Woodbury are peppered with the architecture of the early 17th century. State seaside beach resorts offer more luxurious luxury and miles of golden sand.

The drug crisis being experienced across the country has not spared Connecticut. The rates of substance abuse and addiction reflect figures reported in other states, with the drug overdose rate reportedly worse than the national average. The state experienced a 76% increase in drug-related deaths from 1999 to 2013. Deaths caused by overdose from drugs and alcohol amounted to up to 12.52% of all deaths between 2008 and 2017.

Obviously a wonderful place to visit and stay but Connecticut has issues with drug and alcohol abuse, as all other states.

Approximately 17.63% of Connecticut residents use illegal drugs and another 5.21% of residents abuse alcohol in a given year. The state ranks in the top 10 in the country for illicit drug dependence among those ages 18 to 25. The trend in Connecticut’s substance abuse statistics continues upward. Opioids, such as heroin, and opioid painkillers, such as OxyContin and Vicodin are the cause of this trend. Many residents also report the abuse of stimulant medications such as clonazepam, Ritalin, Adderall, and Xanax.

Governor Dan Malloy proposed several measures to address the prescription drug crisis. He called for a “common sense approach” and stated that addiction needs to be treated like a public health issue and not a crime. The state also receives grants from the federal government targeted for prevention and education programs such as the PDMP (Prescription Drug Monitoring Program), among several others.
