The misuse of illicit and prescription drugs can result in serious health problems including addiction, overdose, and death. Alcohol plays a significant role in many chronic diseases, violence, and accidental injury. Each year, more than 1,700 New Yorkers die of alcohol-related causes. Opioid overdoses (including heroin and prescription painkillers) are preventable. Most overdoses occur 1 to 3 hours after the drug is taken. More New Yorkers die from drug overdoses than homicides, suicides and car crashes combined.
