A recent Washington Post analysis of a federal Drug Enforcement Administration database shows nearly 290 million prescription pain pills were supplied to New Hampshire from 2006 to 2012.
The national analysis broke down the data by county, revealing that Grafton County had the highest rate of oxycodone and hydrocodone prescriptions in the state, amounting to 38.5 pills per person per year. There were 23.7 million pain pills supplied during that time period, with more than four million pills supplied by Dartmouth-Hitchcock Pharmacy in Lebanon.
