Drug Abuse Trends in Rochester

Rochester, New York, is a lakefront city along Lake Ontario, home to 208,046 residents within city limits and over a million in the greater metropolitan area. Though not as large as surrounding cities, drug addiction rates for Rochester and Monroe County are comparatively high. The opioid epidemic is hitting the area hard; sparking restrictions on prescription opioid painkillers that have turned many opioid-dependent individuals into residents with growing heroin addictions.

There is no greater drug epidemic than the one our community is facing right now. We are attacking this crisis head-on with an aggressive approach, including a multi-jurisdictional partnership involving increased manpower, resources, and outreach. We can’t afford not to. Lives depend on it.

- Monroe County Sheriff Todd K. Baxter, Monroe County Heroin Taks Force, 2018

Heroin Abuse in the North Clinton Avenue Area

Between 2013 and 2016, more than 600 people were arrested for heroin-related crimes in Rochester; approximately 70% took place in the North Clinton Avenue area. The Rochester Police Department described the residential street as a “drug corridor” and “open-air drug market” with the open sale and use of heroin. Data has revealed that over half of buyers travel from areas like the Finger Lakes suburbs, Buffalo, and Syracuse.

Local authorities have formed the Monroe County Heroin Task Force to curb the spread of addiction. In 2017, 766 overdoses resulted in 85 deaths in Monroe County. In the first six months of 2018, an average of three people overdosed on some opioid derivative (the majority being heroin) per day. In March alone, 12 of 85 overdoses ended in death. Heroin sent 2,597 patients to OASAS-certified treatment centers (over 3,200 were admitted for any opioid, including heroin) in 2017. Both numbers had increased since 2016.
