As the county seat and largest city of Nueces County, Corpus Christi sees its fair share of drug-related problems as does the rest of the U.S. This coastal city is currently facing a major public health concern regarding fentanyl—an opioid that is driving the number of drug overdose deaths in Nueces County.
According to the Nueces County medical examiner’s office, fentanyl is involved in about 32% of drug overdose deaths that occur in the county.1 From 2019 to 2021, the number of fentanyl-related overdoses grew from 3 to 31.1 In October 2022, the Nueces County Sheriff said fentanyl is being sent from China to Mexico, where cartels smuggle it into the U.S., including to Nueces County.1
In September 2022, the Nueces County District Attorney’s Criminal Interdiction Unit also reported that fentanyl was responsible for most of the overdoses in Corpus Christi and that the drug was being added to cocaine and heroin without the user’s knowledge.2
