Gresham, OR – Drug Testing
Oregon Drug Overdoses Spike 40% in 2020
In line with an unfortunate trend that is occurring nationwide, the state of Oregon saw a shocking 40% jump in overdose deaths in 2020. Experts agree that this is due, in large part, to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. While many drug addicts are already hanging on by a thread, the stresses caused by a disruption in access to housing, income, and support programs pushed some over the edge. According to the Oregon Health Authority, the second half of 2020 saw a 63% jump.
The state is taking steps to address this problem, including distributing the overdose prevention drug naloxone, providing methadone to patients through opioid treatment providers, using real-time overdose surveillance data to mount immediate responses to sudden increases in deaths, and establishing mentorship programs.
Decriminalized Drug Possession in Oregon
Oregon made history in 2020, becoming the first state in the nation to decriminalize the personal possession of illegal drugs — including heroin, oxycodone, cocaine, and methamphetamine. Now, those found possessing drugs will be subject to a $100 fine, which can be avoided by agreeing to participate in a health assessment. It’s important to note that manufacturing and selling drugs still remains illegal. The law was passed with overwhelming voter support and was deemed “A victory for common sense and for science.”
