Hialeah is a city that is located on the southeastern tip of the state of Florida. Because it is a densely populated city within a state that is notorious for drug problems, it has a tendency to have increased rates of substance abuse and addiction. In 2019, there were 21.4 drug deaths in the state of Florida for every 100,000 people, according to a report published by America’s Health Rankings. This rate is markedly higher than the national average and is likely even higher for major cities like this one.

They are central nervous system depressants that kill by causing respiratory failure. They slow down virtually all bodily functions but especially breathing.
