Drug related deaths are more prevalent than ever and are hitting all races, genders, and socio-economic backgrounds with increasing frequency. The heroin epidemic in particular, continues to devastate the U.S. with heroin related deaths increasing nationwide, according to a new report by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Heroin use is on the rise with men and women in almost every age group and in all income levels. The heroin epidemic also doubled among eighteen to twenty five year olds with forty five percent being addicted to prescription painkillers.

The Center for Disease Control found that those addicted to opioid painkillers were 40 times more likely to be or to become addicted to heroin too. People addicted to alcohol were twice as likely and people who used marijuana and cocaine were three and fifteen times more likely to use heroin, respectively.
