New Drug Clinics to Help Heroin Addicts
Two new drug clinics have opened or are about to open in Lorain County, Ohio. This is the location where fatal overdoses from heroin or prescription pills have spiked. There were 60 deaths last year compared to 22 in 2010 and 22 in 2011. There have been 25 deaths this already.
The increase in this county mirrors the Ohio and national increase rate. Overdoses were the leading cause of accidental deaths in Ohio since 2007 and approximately 2 million Americans were hooked on heroin or prescription pills in 2010. Between 2009 and 2010, the number of reported heroin addicts increased from 214,000 to 359,000, a 68 percent hike.
