Chesapeake VA and the Opioid & Addiction Crisis
Chesapeake is a city centrally located in the Hampton Roads area and is the third most populated city in the entire state of Virginia. Extending from the rural border with North Carolina, to the harbor areas of Norfolk and Portsmouth, Chesapeake is located on the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway. One of the most notable facts about Chesapeake is the rich history of professional athletes that grew up in the city. Such athletes include N.F.L. star DeAngelo Hall, N.B.A. Hall of famer Alonzo Mourning, NASCAR great Ricky Rudd, and M.L.B. superstars B.J. Upton and David Wright
As with any growing city, it seems that Chesapeake is not immune to having a major issue of opioid misuse and unfortunately, overdoses and deaths. In the last four years, Chesapeake has had an alarming uptick in opioid overdoses aligning with the state of Virginia’s overdose statistics. At least 1,420 people died in Virginia last year of drug overdoses, the fourth year that drugs have outpaced motor vehicle accidents and gun-related incidents as the leading cause of unnatural death in the state.
