Pennsylvania has been at the heart of the opioid epidemic for many years now, and as of 2016, ranks 5th for states with the highest drug overdose deaths per 100,00 residents at 37.9. While it ranked 5th for per-capita deaths, it actually had the highest number of total deaths, at 4,627 drug overdose deaths in 2016. Heroin, fentanyl, and prescription opioids have been rampant all across the state, and "grey death" has been found multiple times by DEA seizures. This is a frequently fatal mixture of heroin, fentanyl, carfentanil, and U-47700 that can be fatal simply by touching it or inhaling airborne particles. Pennsylvania also holds high-ranking places in the total number of drug-positive forensic tests for heroin, fentanyl, and oxycodone, at 2nd, 3rd, and 9th places respectively. Other drugs have also been making an impact in Pennsylvania such as synthetic cannabinoids like spice. In 1 week in July 2017, there were over 150 people that went to hospital ERs for synthetic cannabinoid overdoses. While none of the overdoses were fatal, this was a significant influx of people so suddenly swarm hospitals, putting great strain on an already taxed healthcare system. While drugs have been, and continue to be, a problem in Pennsylvania, the chances to find help are also improving. Drug and alcohol detox centers can be found all over the state, and these centers often act as a solid first step toward achieving long-term recovery.
