Opioid Use Disorder

Learn About Addiction & Treatment

Opioid addiction is a significant issue in Hartford, CT, stemming from the excessive prescription of painkillers and the availability of inexpensive illicit drugs. In 2020, Connecticut witnessed 1,263 opioid overdose deaths, prompting action from the Department of Health and Human Services. In Hartford, efforts are underway to expand addiction treatment options, increase the distribution of naloxone for overdose reversal, and implement harm reduction programs, including syringe exchange initiatives. Collaborative partnerships between community organizations, healthcare providers, and law enforcement are actively working to raise awareness, prevent addiction, and provide early support. These initiatives aim to combat opioid addiction and enhance the overall well-being of the community.
