Addiction in Newark

Within New Castle County, Newark Delaware is doing its best to fight against the opioid epidemic. However, the state is still handing out hundreds of thousands of new prescriptions for opioid pain relievers. This ramped up to 768,974 thousand prescriptions, or 80 for every 100 people in Delaware. In addition to new synthetic opioids coming from overseas and contaminating the rest of the supply in the state, Delaware is suffering from one of the worst drug-related death rates in the United States. Today, it is now more dangerous than ever to suffer from addiction in Newark.

Fentanyl Contamination in Newark

The local law enforcement in New Castle County aren’t just watching out for the local dealers. The Port of Wilmington is seeing shipments of fentanyl and fake prescriptions pills coming into the port from overseas. In 2018, a routine inspection unveiled a shipment of fentanyl-laced heroin and marijuana. Fentanyl has become popular among dealers due to its potency and low cost. It allows them to use less of it while making a larger profit. However, without proper equipment, they are unable to measure the doses accurately, causing many to suffer a lethal overdose.

Another search of the port in 2016 resulted in the raid of a residence in New Castle County that was in possession of 49,969 Schedule II and IV substances. This includes generic forms of popular prescription opioids, like OxyContin, and benzodiazepines, like Xanax.

Overdose Deaths in Newark

Residing in New Castle County, Newark is part of the most densely populated area in Delaware. Unfortunately, this is also where a great majority of the reported drug-related emergencies and deaths happen. On average, emergency services are called to treat an overdose every 80 minutes, or 18 times a day. In fact, from January to November of 2018, paramedics administered naloxone to nearly 600 people across New Castle County. Considering most people need more than one dose of naloxone to successfully reverse their overdose, the paramedics could have easily gone through thousands of dollars’ worth of naloxone.

Over the course of a year from 2016 to 2017, emergency rooms in Delaware saw a 105% increase in opioid overdose admissions. That brought the total number of admissions from opioids up to 2,075 across the state. 1,529 of those visits were in New Castle County. 2017 saw the deaths by overdose rise from 182 to 249, nearly 37%. Fentanyl was included in 141 of those deaths, making it one of the greatest concentrations of fentanyl deaths in the country. This is largely due to the proximity of the port and the contaminated heroin.
