The U.S. Just Broke a Devastating Record for Drug Overdose Deaths


CDC Drug Overdose Tables

For the first time in U.S. history, more than 100,000 people died from drug overdoses in a single year, according to provisional data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The reported and predicted provisional counts represent the numbers of deaths due to drug overdose occurring in the 12-month periods ending in the month indicated. These counts include all seasons of the year and are insensitive to variations by seasonality. Deaths are reported by the jurisdiction in which the death occurred.
