Cincinnati, Ohio

Cincinnati, Ohio, like many large cities, has had its share of drug problems in recent years. In 2018, officials made several drug busts in the city that led to the arrest of individuals known for trafficking drugs in the area. The most common types of drugs being bought and sold in Cincinnati are opioids, including heroin and fentanyl, and deadly mixtures of these drugs with other substances like cocaine.

Drug addiction in America has changed over the past few decades. What was once a problem almost exclusively with street drugs has turned into a problem with abusing legal drugs like prescription painkillers. Because these medications are so readily available and relatively inexpensive, many are using them for the feeling of euphoria they produce. Instead of taking the pills as directed, those looking for a high crush the pills, snort them or inject them in order to feel immediate and amplified effects.

Because prescription painkiller opiates are so closely related to heroin, the next step in the progression of drug abuse in America has been for addicted individuals to turn to heroin for a better high and because it is sometimes easier to obtain. Today, communities have seen a sharp increase in heroin abuse and overdose, because of the switch from prescription painkillers. Other drugs are becoming problems as well, such as fentanyl and carfentanil, because they are even more potent than heroin.

The problem with current drug addiction trends is that it affects communities across the country, large cities and rural areas alike. Drug addiction, particularly heroin addiction, is not just a poor inner-city problem anymore. It is prevalent in suburbs and among middle-class families just as often as in impoverished areas.

The key to helping those with opioid addiction and preventing it in the first place is education. Better education programs will create awareness for the problem and will give parents, families, and the public in general signs to watch for and ways to keep young people from abusing drugs in the first place. Education will also help physicians, pharmacists, and patients understand the dangers of prescription opioids and the importance of using them as directed and monitoring those who take them for pain.

Education will also help reduce the stigma of drug addiction so that more people are open to receiving treatment who need it. Addiction can happen to anyone, of any background, family structure, profession, or socioeconomic status. Unfortunately, those who struggle with addiction still feel like they are being judged as morally inferior to others and that if anyone finds out their problem their reputation will be ruined. By creating a more open culture in which communities can talk about how addiction has impacted their lives, more people will feel comfortable asking for help.

Today, opioid addiction and overdose remain a serious problem in Ohio. Individuals need to be aware of the signs of opiate addiction, and communities should provide resources to prevent drug abuse. Most importantly, those who struggle with addiction should be provided with real resources for treatment so that they can take control of their lives again and develop lasting sobriety.
