THE GREEN MOUNTAIN STATE ALWAYS AIMS FOR CHANGE

Historically, the state of Vermont has consistently strived for progression and change. It was:

  • one of the first states to oppose slavery
  • the first state to legalize women suffrage in 1880 before it was even proposed to the national constitution
  • the first state to introduce civil unions in 2000
  • the first state to legislate same-sex marriage in 2009 without being a result of a court challenge or ruling.

Oh, and self-proclaimed democratic socialist and 2016 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders was also a long-running US senator and representative for Vermont.

It’s a state known for its artisanal brands and dairy farms—Ben and Jerry’s, anyone?—as well as a plethora of ski resorts, where Nordic and backcountry skiers frequently visit in the wintertime. And if you’re a true American, you’d get your maple syrup from Vermont, not Canada.

Drugs Most Commonly Abused in Vermont

Alcohol and opiates, which include both prescription opioids and heroin, are the two major substances reported as reasons for enrolling in drug treatment in Vermont.

According to the state’s Department of Health, Vermonters ages 45 and older were the largest group (1,342 people) of people who received alcohol abuse treatment in 2015 while Vermonters ages 25 to 34 were the largest group (3,194) who received opioid abuse treatment. This also reflects state patterns of people seeking treatment for opioid addiction much sooner after first use than with alcohol.

Some commonly abused substances in Vermont are:

  • Heroin
  • Fentanyl
  • Prescription opioids
  • Alcohol
  • Cocaine
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Methadone

The above list reflects top substances found in Vermont’s drug-related fatalities in 2016, also reported by the Vermont Department of Health, which found:

  • 34%, or about one-third, of drug-related deaths in Vermont involved heroin
  • 34% involved fentanyl
  • 30% involved prescription opioids (not including fentanyl)
  • 19% involved alcohol
  • 16% involved cocaine
  • 12% involved benzodiazepines
  • 9% involved methadone.
