According to the Washoe County Sheriff’s Department, methamphetamine is the deadliest illicit drug used in Washoe County.1 In 2016, there were 55 drug-related deaths involving methamphetamine, which was higher than the number of deaths caused by heroin, cocaine, and designer drugs combined.2 Between 2009 and 2017, the number of methamphetamine admissions to Washoe County drug rehab centers increased from 478 to 1,537.3
Fentanyl is the second most deadly drug being used in Washoe County.1 Between 2016 and 2020, the number of fentanyl-related deaths in the county increased from 7 to 55.1 Local authorities attribute the rise in fentanyl deaths to the fact that more dealers are mixing it with other drugs—including marijuana—for the sole purpose of getting their clients addicted.1 As a result, many people are using drugs like marijuana not knowing it contains fentanyl, and are suffering overdoses.
Between 2008 and 2017, the rate of alcohol-induced deaths in Washoe County was higher than that for Nevada (16.7 vs 11.5 persons per 100,000 population), as was the rate of drug-induced deaths (22.6 persons vs 20.7 per 100,000 population).2
