With the third largest population in the country, New York faces ongoing problems with alcohol and drug addiction. Cocaine, heroin, and marijuana are the top three substances abused in the Empire State, with prescription drugs including opioids and benzodiazepines trailing closely behind.
Many illicit substances make their way into New York from other countries via the Port of New York and New Jersey — the largest container port on the east coast. As a result, New York families and communities around the state are being affected by addiction and losing their loved ones to incarceration and death.
