Heroin Addiction in Ohio

According to Ohio Substance Abuse Monitoring Network, heroin remains highly available in all regions. During the previous reporting period, heroin availability had increased in Akron-Canton, Athens, Cincinnati, Dayton, Toledo and Youngstown. During this reporting period, heroin availability has continued to increase in all of these regions; an increase in availability also exists for Cleveland, while high availability in Columbus has remained the same. Participants of the survey reported that heroin is, "falling out of the sky.";

Heroin-involved deaths have continued to increase from 16 percent (233) in 2008 to 20 percent (283) in 2009 to a high of 22 percent* of all drug overdoses (338) in 2010.

Many individuals who participated of this research attribute the increased demand for heroin to the reformulation of OxyContin®. While many types of heroin are currently available in the regions, participants continued to report brown powdered as the most available type in Akron-Canton, Cleveland, Toledo and Youngstown; brown and white powdered heroin are most available in Cincinnati; brown powdered and black tar are most available in Dayton; black tar remains most available in Athens and Columbus.

A profile for a typical heroin user did not emerge from the data collected. However, participants and substance abuse professionals consistently noted that heroin users are more likely to be white and getting younger. Heroin users in Toledo exemplified the overarching sentiment of heroin use by youth in reporting that their first heroin use occurred between 18-19 years of age, and was preceded by their first prescription opioid use when in high school. Age of first-time heroin use reportedly occurs in users as young as 13-14 years. Other substances often used in combination with heroin include alcohol, crack cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamine, powdered cocaine, prescription opioids and sedative-hypnotics.

Prescription Drug Addiction in Ohio

Opioid analgesic painkillers, one of the largest growing segments of prescription drugs to be abused in Ohio. These are medications such as OxyContin, Darvon and Vicodin. They include ingredients such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, fentanyl and propoxyphene. More than 201 million prescriptions were written in 2007 for products that have a potential for abuse—opioid analgesics, methylphenidates and amphetamines—according to Verispan, a prescription information database.

Opana's dangerous new popularity arose when OxyContin's manufacturer changed its formula to deter users from crushing, breaking or dissolving the pill so it could be snorted or injected to achieve a high.

As state officials in Ohio look to tackle the issue of prescription drug abuse, the number of opiate overdose deaths in Ohio's largest county sits at about 100 in one year, mirroring the total statewide a decade ago. Most Cuyahoga County communities have been affected by deaths from prescription painkillers or the street drug heroin, The Plain Dealer in Cleveland reported.

State data shows heroin and addictive medications that are similar to it accounted for more than 750 of the nearly 1,400 drug deaths in 2009, according to the newspaper.

Prescription opiates are like pharmaceutical-grade heroin, and the prescription drug problem is driving a heroin problem, said Orman Hall, director of Ohio's Department of Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services.
