With opioids being prescribed so heavily for many years, people that find themselves physically dependent on opioids have turned to heroin as a cheaper and more easily procured way of avoiding the painful effects of opioid withdrawal. According to the Center for Disease Control, the increase of availability and lower prices of heroin have contributed to the increase in heroin use.
The result is a epidemic of heroin overdoses without precedent. The rate of overdose deaths from heroin have quadrupled in the last ten years according to the CDC.
And the face of the heroin abuser has changed, with the greatest increases in use coming in groups that historically have had the least abuse: rates doubling for women and more than doubling for non-Hispanic whites. This includes rates increasing in the privately insured and with higher incomes than in the past.
