The Northeast Crises 

The northeast is facing the highest overdose deaths in the country due to the use of Fentanyl and heroin. Approximately 130 Americans are dying each day from an opioid overdose. If you are living in the northeast and are struggling with opioid drug addiction, you need professional help to stop using. You may also want to consider removing yourself from familiar surroundings where you go to get high and remove yourself from the people you use drugs with. Ridding yourself of these triggers and temptations is one of the best ways to recover and avoid a relapse. Many people in recovery find it extremely helpful to leave their home state to seek help elsewhere, where people don’t know their history and they can start over with a clean slate.  

The first wave of opioid overdose deaths began in the 1990s with an increase of prescription medications that contained natural and semi-synthetic opioids and methadone. The second wave began around 2010 and was related to increasing heroin deaths. Once patients ran out of their opioid prescription medications, many turned to heroin as a substitute. 

By 2013, the third wave had begun with an increase in synthetic opioid overdose deaths. These synthetic opioids involved illicitly-manufactured Fentanyl, which can be found in combination with cocaine, heroin and other types of counterfeit pills. Government outreach to States and communities, through the Centers for Disease Control, are working diligently to curb and reverse the opioid crisis in the northeast.
