By the Numbers: Drug & Alcohol Rehabs in New York

Based on OASAS 2010 estimates OASAS 2010 estimates, approximately twelve percent of New York State residents age 12 and older experience a substance use disorder (addiction or abuse) annually. Over 1.9 million New Yorkers (1.77 million adults and 156,000 youth ages 12-17) have a substance abuse problem.

The rates of opioid related deaths are rising and reaching record levels, with an average adjusted rate of 11.1 per 100,000 deaths. Erie and Essex Counties are more than 16 and Greene County has more than 26 deaths per 100,000.

The Hidden Fentanyl Kills campaign is an outreach program to educate New Yorkers about this deadly substance. Ads and information cards can be downloaded and easily shared in an effort to halt widespread use of this dangerous substance.

The 911 Good Samaritan Law was created to save lives. It provides protection against criminal charges for anyone who seeks medical assistance for an overdose, as well as for the person who has overdosed.

  • Q. According to numbers from OASAS, heroin and opioids are a major epidemic in New York as well as the rest of the country. Does this cross demographics or are there particular populations and ages in New York in which this problem is on the rise?

    Addiction does not discriminate. People of every gender, age group, ethnicity and religion have been impacted by the opioid epidemic.

    Under Governor Cuomo’s leadership, New York State has become a national leader in developing and providing prevention, treatment and recovery services for people struggling with substance use disorder. This multi-prong approach to addressing the disease of addiction includes new and expanded programs and services as well as legislation to increase access to treatment.

  • Q. Are there certain parts of New York in which the epidemic is most severe and why is this so?

    The opioid epidemic has gripped communities across the country, and the communities of New York State are no exception. It does not matter if you live in an urban or rural area or upstate or downstate.

  • Q. In terms of continuum of care, does New York and its provider system have a fully available step process from detox to the return to typical life?
