Overview of Vermonter drug trends

Vermont was one of the top ten states for rates of drug abuse. Available data and information from law enforcement and public health sources show opioids to be the primary drug threat within Vermont. The Governor stated during his State of the State address that, “In every corner of our state, heroin and opiate drug addiction threatens us.” Unfortunately, heroin is now easier and cheaper to obtain, which is contributing to heroin’s rise in popularity. Public health indicators, including drug overdose deaths and drug treatment admissions, suggest recent increases in heroin abuse in many Vermont counties. The rise in the use and sale of heroin has turned heroin addiction into an epidemic across all 14 counties in Vermont. Making matters worse isthe price of heroin in the state is dropping even as purity is increasing.

Approximately two million dollars worth of heroin is trafficked through Vermont every week. This means heroin smuggling within the borders of Vermont is at least a 100-million dollar a year industry. Heroin’s pervasiveness is in part attributed to Vermont’s geographic location. Interstate highways from New York, Boston and Montreal all converge in Vermont. The Vermont State Police have dubbed interstates 89, 91 and 93 the “heroin highways.” The Burlington, South Burlington, and Winooski areas together make up the bulk of retail heroin distribution in Vermont.

Approximately 3 out of 4 heroin addicts began their opioid use with a prescription painkiller. The women and men addicted to painkillers but cannot get them anymore are now searching for other opioids. Many of these unfortunates are turning to heroin. The motivating factors for the surge in heroin use seems to be lack of availability of painkillers and heroin’s ease of availability, high potency and low price.

Across the nation, the number of women who died from opioid pain-killer overdoses rose 415 %between 1999 and 2010.State regulators from Montpelier have been cracking down on doctors who over prescribe painkillers, in turn making them more expensive and harder to obtain. The CDC reports between 2010 – 2012 heroin overdose deaths across the nation increased in every single subgroup. Death rates have doubled for women and men, increased for all people of all ages, doubled for whites and Hispanics, and nearly doubled for blacks. Heroin use overall rose by 75 percent between 2007 and 2011.
