    • Description:
      More people died from drug overdoses in the United States in 2014 than during any previous year on record, driven by sharp increases in opioid overdose deaths involving both prescription opioids pain relievers and illicit opioids like heroin. The opioid overdose epidemic killed more than 28,000 people in 2014 alone.

      A four-fold increase in the prescribing of opioid pain relievers contributed to and continues to fuel the epidemic. The last fifteen years have seen massive increases in opioid overdose deaths, driven largely by deaths from the most commonly prescribed prescription opioids and, in the last five years, sharp increases in heroin and illegally manufactured opioid (i.e., illicit fentanyl) overdose deaths. Continued action is urgently needed.
