CT Prevalence and Trends
"After increasing through 2015, Connecticut experienced a gradual decline in cocaine use. The 2018-2019 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) estimated about 1.99% of Connecticut residents over the age of 12 reported past year cocaine use, with young adults having the highest reported use (6.21%), which is higher than the prevalence in the U.S. (5.54%)."
"Despite the overall decline in use, Department of Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) data for Connecticut indicates an increase in drug seizures involving cocaine in recent years and the Connecticut’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) data show an increase in incidents of cocaine involvement in drug-related deaths, most often in combination with fentanyl and heroin."
