Information on Drugs, Alcohol, and Interventions in New York

When discussing how to plan a successful drug or alcohol intervention, it is helpful to understand what types of drugs are prevalent in your state and how they affect it. As one of the most well-known states, New York is one of the busiest and most populated areas in the United States. The state’s major city, New York City, is where a majority of the country’s major industries are based. NYC is also where a large portion of the state’s population lives. This has created an entire sub-culture surrounded by drug and alcohol abuse; which also why it is known as a major drug distribution center and destination for users.

The substances with the most impact in the state are alcohol, heroin, crack, cocaine, and MDMA. With the increase of heroin and opioid addiction, just like many other states, New York is not spared from having a severe uptick in overdoses. These heroin overdoses are mainly caused by Fentanyl, a drug that it ten times stronger than heroin and are being sold as heroin. Illicit drugs, such as cocaine and heroin, are typically imported from other countries (such as South America, Colombia, and Canada). Other than being sold on the streets, these illicit drugs are then often sold at the retail level (bars, grocery stores, mini-marts, etc.). In order to sell these drugs discretely, many dealers create labels on these products to try and mask what is truly going on.
