Drug Addiction Treatment in Connecticut

New England in Need of Addiction Treatment

A large part of Connecticut's population is shared by the major metro population of New York City. Therefore much of the drug trafficking and abuse that occurs in the state is a by-product of the massive gang activity that drives drug use in New York City along with a large swathe of the East Coast.

Surprisingly, Connecticut has some of the highest drug abuse rates in the country, including amongst teenagers, and has a similarly high rate of teenagers and young adults who do not get addiction treatment. Like much of the Northeast United States, Connecticut suffers heavily from the drug trafficking coming out of New York without experiencing a lot of the crime, corruption, and poverty that is the natural setting of drug distribution rackets. Therefore drug addiction in the state takes on a different role: that of a hidden epidemic.

Unique Drug Addiction Problems in CT

One of the biggest problems in Connecticut and nationwide is the prescription drug scourge. Quickly over-shadowing heroin and crystal methamphetamine in its popularity, prescription drug overdose is now the leading cause of accidental death in persons under the age of 45 here as well as in ten other states. Prescription drugs can be obtained legally or bought from drug traffickers, but even when it is strictly consumed according to doctor's orders, they can become dangerously addictive. Opiate painkillers such as Oxycodone and Hydrocodone and depressants such as Valium and Xanax are some of the most popular and dangerous drugs in the world today.

With drug policies gradually shifting towards drug rehabilitation, many problems that have stayed in the shadows for too long are beginning to come to light. If you or someone you know is suffering from a chronic drug, alcohol, or behavioral addiction that seems totally out of control, then it is time to reach out to an addiction treatment counselor.
