Or more rampant back in 2015.
August 9, 2016 – The Health Department today released new data confirming a 66 percent increase in overdose deaths in New York City from 2010-2015. Heroin overdose death rates increased by 158 percent from 2010-2015, and heroin was involved in 59 percent of drug overdose deaths in 2015. In response to preliminary data suggesting high rates of opioid-involved overdose deaths, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced new initiatives this past April, which includes a three-year, $25 million investment to fund 10 critical programs that increase education efforts and training and expand surveillance. ThriveNYC, led by First Lady Chirlane McCray, also invests heavily in opioid treatment by increasing distribution and access to life-saving medications, such as naloxone and buprenorphine, in high-risk areas. Heroin-involved overdose death rates increased in all boroughs, except Staten Island. Bronx residents had the highest rate of heroin overdose deaths – the rate was more than double that of Queens, Manhattan and Brooklyn. The Bronx also had the largest number of heroin overdose deaths (146) compared with all other boroughs. Citywide, there were a total of 937 overdose deaths in 2015. The new Epi Data Brief can be found here. Please see the Opioid Epi Data Supplemental Brief for additional charts and data.
According to the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, it was the largest seizure of heroin by its agents in the city, and the agency’s fourth largest haul nationwide. Officials said it represented a disruption that would send a message to traffickers, cause dealers to scramble for a supply and, potentially, save lives.
But it was not the largest amount ever intercepted in the city. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, two shipments of more than 200 pounds each were seized from cars aboard passenger ships entering the city. In 1989, federal agents uncovered 849 pounds of heroin in Flushing, Queens, and in 1991, 1,071 pounds was found in Oakland, Calif.

There's more drugs and more availability than ever before.
The Drug War? We've been bvllsh1tted....all of us.
Now the argument has to be was that on purpose, it overwhelmed us or is there another reason?
Forget illegal drugs for a moment.
What about Prescriptions?
Ever notice how different people are today than years ago?
They're in a fog, sleepy, restless, zoned out, anxious, ocd, nervous, etc.
If you won't take Heroin, we''ll addict you to a dozen scrips to Zombie you out.
Just my observations.

I agree 100% The amount of people put on prescription pain meds is off the charts. And once addicted, many find it much cheaper to use heroin, hence the rapid rise of that drug too.

Have a buddy who works security in an affluent area of Suffolk. He says it's like night of the living dead at night, mostly affluent teens and adults being brought in on OD's or heroin.
On Long Island and NYC it is out of control. NYPD admits they were blindsided by it .
