Last year, the International Narcotics Control Board (INCB) billed the abuse of medicines containing narcotics and their smuggling from India among the "greatest drug-related challenges" facing South Asia. About 83,000 bottles of codeine-based cough syrups were seized in India in the six months through March. In meetings with companies, Indian regulators called the "menace of abuse" a "growing concern". Abuse is particularly common in Bangladesh.

Community health worker Jennifer Pascal (L) makes a house visit to Mary Smith, a former addict who was treated at Boston Healthcare of the Homeless Program's Suboxone clinic and now lives in supportive housing, in Boston, Massachusetts January 14, 2013. Suboxone is an opiate replacement therapy drug used to help treat opiate cravings and withdrawal. Drug overdoses have overtaken AIDS-related causes to become the leading cause of death of homeless adults, according to a study of homeless residents of Boston who received treatment from the Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program, though its broad conclusions apply to homeless populations in many urban parts of the United States, the study's author and homeless advocates said.
