Information on Drugs, Alcohol, and Interventions in Connecticut
Before hosting, or even looking for, an intervention, families must take into account what drugs are popular in their state and how they affect it. This allows them to understand what is going on in the world of addiction. Even though Connecticut is near New York City, the state does not offer many resources for alcohol and drug addiction. Fentanyl, cocaine, opioids, and heroin are major substances that are abused in Connecticut. Fentanyl has become a major issue in states all across the country. The drug is ten times stronger than heroin and is being sold as a heroin replacement without the addicts knowing. This has caused Fentanyl-related deaths in Connecticut to increase by 148% from 2014 to 2015.
