Rochester, New York is the third most populated city in the state, and it was given the honor of being named the 3rd best place to raise a family by Forbes in 2010. Despite this accolade, Rochester still experiences issues like any other town. In 2012, violent crimes in Rochester were almost four times the national average in cities with populations over 100,000. This alarming crime rate can be the effect of substance abuse that has consumed the community. Because of this, there is a great need for drug rehab centers in Rochester. According to the Monroe County Heroin Task Force, there has been an increase in opioid overdose reported. Overdoses increased almost 4-fold from 2016 to 2018, and though the number of reported overdoses was over 1,000 last year, there is a silver lining. While overdose may have increased by four times, deaths are down by 3. Though such a small decrease is nothing to celebrate, it is worth noting the percentage of people being saved in recent years. In 2016, more than 50% of all reported overdoses ended in death. Compare that to the less than 15% reported fatality rate in 2018. Progress is being made in how overdoses are treated, but more and more people are taking drugs.
