Based on the current trend, analysts are predicting that there will be 888 deaths caused by heroin in Connecticut this year. With this figure representing an all-time high in Connecticut, Governor Dannel Malloy is rolling out a new comprehensive strategy in the hope of reducing rates of heroin overdose deaths and providing wider access to quality addiction treatment. Called the Connecticut Opioid REsponse (CORE) Initiative, the plan was developed by Governor Malloy in partnership with professionals and academics from the Yale School of Medicine. Part of the plan involves using education and community outreach methods to change the way people think and talk about addiction, which will result in more effective treatment of the disease. As well, the plan will provide better ways of identifying high-risk individuals, monitoring the prescribing of addictive pharmaceuticals, and ensure that high-quality medication-assisted therapies (MATs) that utilize methadone and buprenorphine are available and accessible to those in need.
