Addiction in America: By the Numbers

The abuse of tobacco, alcohol and illicit drugs costs the U.S. $700 billion annually in costs related to crime, lost work productivity and health care.

Fentanyl is an opioid 25-40 times more potent than heroin.

Fentanyl Deaths on the Rise

There has been a 689% increase in fentanyl related deaths from 2013 to 2015.

Fentanyl, an opioid 25 to 40 times more potent than heroin, is a prescription painkiller most often used to ease chronic pain for patients in the final stages of cancer. Due to its increased potency, Fentanyl is being illegally diverted for abuse. Drug dealers seeking to distinguish their product from other narcotics mix small amounts of fentanyl into their merchandise, often without the customer’s knowledge.

Fentanyl related compounds caused a 400% increase in seizures and over 700 overdose deaths from 2013 to 2014. The true number of deaths is likely higher because “many coroners and crime laboratories do not test for fentanyl specifically, unless given a reason to do so. Further, some fentanyl deaths have been attributed to heroin” (NDEWS, 2015).

The fentanyl surge primarily resides along the East Coast. However, increasing evidence of heroin mixed with fentanyl is being reported by Texas and California (SAMHSA, 2015).
