The popularity of heroin is due in large part to the ever-increasing threat of pharmaceutical opiates. Many people who become dependent upon prescription drugs such as OxyContin and products containing hydrocodone may turn to heroin once they become hooked. Demand for heroin is high in Connecticut because it’s cheaper, often more easily accessible and elicits similar effects to prescription opiates. The DEA says high purity heroin can be smoked or snorted and doesn’t have to be injected, making it even more attractive for those trying to save money. The problem is evident – more and more people are looking for the best Connecticut detox and checking into opiate detoxification or rehab programs. Throughout the state and the number of heroin abuse and overdoses has rapidly increased, according to the agency. Connecticut’s geographic location and proximity to New York City make it an important transit and destination area for drugs, heroin included.
Diverted prescription opiates such as OxyContin, Vicodin, methadone, oxycodone and hydrocodone are behind much of the pharmaceutical abuse occurring in Connecticut. Pharmaceutical diversion has reached an alarming high, according to law enforcement officials throughout the country. These can be stolen from medicine cabinets, pharmacies or hospitals. Sometimes, health care workers or pharmacy employees are behind the theft. These drugs are sometimes shipped into the state from other locales around the country. The increasing availability of online pharmacies has also contributed to the state’s problem. Some sites offer these medications without a prescription and some knowingly send the wrong product, the wrong dose or drugs that have dangerous additives. Doctor shopping is also a popular practice for people who want to secure more than one supply of opiates. People who have legitimate prescriptions may sell them for the money and some take that money and buy higher quantities of heroin. This state participates in a prescription-monitoring program, a database that helps doctors and pharmacists keep track of a patients’ history.
