Although there are many substances of abuse in Kentucky, research studies now show that prescription, drugs are some of the most common. This is due to the rising number of people in the state who suffer from a wide variety of ailments, including pain conditions, that require treatment using a prescription medication.

As a result, it is not exactly surprising that prescription drug abuse and addiction is a growing problem among local residents. It is also for this reason that the state has been engaging in various programs to try and reduce the crisis before it gets out of hand.

The Prescription Drug Crisis In Kentucky

Although the state provides local residents with many attractions and things to do, some people here have been struggling with prescription drug abuse and addiction. This is not surprising considering that the number of prescriptions written for certain medications have been on the increase for several years now.

In 2011, for instance, doctors in Kentucky wrote a total of 371,794 dosage units of prescription drugs. this number decreased to 301,712 dosage units by 2016 - representing a decline of 70 million dosages.

Even so, the number of drug overdose fatalities reported in Kentucky increased in 2016. Irrespective of the location of the death and including the non-residents who lost their lives while in the state, a total of 1404 people died here in 2017. This was according to the Office of Vital Statistics. It was also a decrease from the 1248 deaths that were reported back in 2015.

Of the 1404 deaths reported, a total of 1330 had clear toxicology data. This data included but was not limited to:

  • 364 people died in Jefferson County, making it the county with the greatest number of drug overdose deaths up from the 268 deaths reported the previous year
  • Fentanyl - both on its own and in combination with heroin - led to 623 deaths from a drug overdose - a figure that accounted for 47 percent of the total fatality count up from the 34 percent reported in 2015
  • People between the ages of 35 and 44 comprised the largest segment of the population of Kentucky to suffer a drug overdose death that year
  • People between the ages of 45 and 54 comprised the 2nd largest segment of the population of the state to die from a drug overdose
  • Toxicology and autopsied reports from state coroners showed that heroin was responsible for 34 percent of all the overdose deaths reported in Kentucky in 2016; this was an increase from the 28 percent that was reported the previous year
  • Kenton County showed the largest decreased in the deaths from a drug overdose, amounting to 22 less deaths in 2016 than in the previous year
  • Bell County suffered 10 fewer deaths in comparison to the previous year while these deaths decreased by 8 in Knox County

Toxicology reports and cases that were autopsied at the office of the Kentucky Medical Examiner in 2016 also showed that:

  • 47 percent of all the cases were linked to fentanyl
  • Alprazolam was linked to 26 percent of all the drug overdose fatalities that were reported in the state
  • Heroin or monoacetylmorphine was responsible for 34 percent of all the drug overdose deaths reported that year
  • Hydrocodone was linked to 16 percent of all the drug overdose deaths reported in Kentucky
  • More than 45 percent of the drug overdose fatalities were linked to morphine, making it the drug responsible for the greatest number of overdose deaths in the state; however, it is important to note that some of these deaths might have been due to heroin abuse because the body metabolizes heroin into morphine
  • Oxycodone was responsible for 19 percent of all the drug overdose fatalities reported that year

Substance abuse - particularly involving the abuse and diversion of prescription medications - is among the main public safety and health crises that Kentucky has been struggling with.

For more than 10 years now, the state has reported an increase of more than 1500 in terms of the number of local residents who have lost their lives to a drug overdose death. This growing crisis has been exacting an unbearable toll on economic growth and stability, social services, communities, and families all across Kentucky.

The state has been trying to deal with the problem through various policy and program initiatives. These include but are not limited to the following solutions that have been in existence for several years now:

  • Expanding the availability of addiction treatment and rehabilitation services and opportunities to local residents
  • Increasing penalties for the trafficking of drugs such as fentanyl and its analogues as well as for heroin
  • Prescription drug monitoring programs
  • The enactment of various laws to address the growing availability of and access to prescription drugs
  • The Kentucky substance abuse and addiction call center launched by the Justice and Public Safety Cabinet and Operation to connect residents with addiction treatment services and programs
  • The public toll-free 1-833-8KY-HELP helpline at 1-833-859-4357

These centers offer their services on both an inpatient and an outpatient basis, and they can help you overcome your abuse of prescription medications. It is recommended that you check into one as soon as you realize that you have a growing prescription drug abuse and addiction problem in Kentucky.
