This isn't just about heroin... Recent statistics from the CDC (Center for Disease Control) are alarming. Overdoses of prescription painkillers have increased by 500% over the past 17 years, resulting in more than 200,000 deaths in that time period. More than 46 people die every day from a prescription painkiller overdose.
Many abusers of prescription opioids such as OxyContin, Percocet, and Vicodin do eventually begin abusing heroin, their illegal street cousin, because it is typically cheaper and easier to obtain. In the US, heroin abuse continues to be most prevalent in the Eastern states, including Rhode Island.
