  • Description:
    The opioid overdose epidemic is the public health crisis of our time, devastating families and communities across the United States. Over the past few years, U.S. life expectancy has declined, a trend largely driven by deaths from drug overdose. In 2017, there were over 70,000 drug overdose deaths in the U.S.—more than 47,000 of these involved prescription or illicit opioids. CDC’s national leadership is turning the tide. While drug overdose deaths remain high, new data show that increases have slowed; from 2016 to 2017, the number of drug overdose deaths increased 10%, which is a smaller increase compared to the 21% increase from 2015 to 2016. This report, organized around CDC’s Strategic Framework for Prevention, describes CDC’s response to the opioid crisis, and while there have been significant improvements, CDC looks toward the horizon for actions that will help continue to curb the opioid overdose epidemic.
