ED Opioid Overdose Visits Jump 30% in One Year

ER visits for opioid overdoses increased in the majority of the 16 states that have been worst affected by the addiction epidemic the CDC's latest data reveals

U.S. Sen. Rob Portman, an Ohio Republican, said the report found a 54 percent increase in overdoses from July 2016 to September 2017 in the major metro areas of 16 states, including Cleveland and Columbus, Ohio.

In only one year, overdoses from opioids hopped by around 30 percent, as per the a report discharged Tuesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Overdose increases in some states and cities may be due to changes in the volume and type of illicit opioid drugs being sold on the streets, health officials said. "But this is a very complex epidemic", says the CDC's acting director, Anne Schuchat.

"This is a very hard and fast-moving epidemic and there are no easy solutions", said Dr. Anne Schuchat, acting director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Increases in other states across the nation are even more alarming - Wisconsin up 108 percent, Pennsylvania 80 percent, DE nearly 105 percent in suspected overdoses.

Death certificate data gives the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) final numbers for the number of people killed by opioid epidemics, but this information takes time to make its way to the agency. No region or demographic group was spared, and two states - Wisconsin and DE - saw overdose visits to their emergency rooms more than double. Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Delaware and IL reported an uptick of 50 percent or more, the report said.

The survey did find small declines in overdose visits in a few states, including MA and New Hampshire.

"[This] means 115 people die each day from opioid overdose", she said.

Overdoses increased in all five regions of the U.S., and in every demographic.

Pharmacies in the state dispensed 4.1 million opioid prescriptions in 2017, down 20 percent from 5.1 million in 2015, according a report last week from the Controlled Substances Board.

Colorado Springs students walk out in protest of DACA deadline
DACA recipients were no longer allowed to renew their two-year permit as a outcome and were, therefore, exposed to deportation. The Monday protests came on the same day President Donald Trump had set the deadline for a decision on DACA for March 5.

The study comes just a week after the White House held a week-long opioid summit. It's kind of like pointing to a burning building and saying, oh, there's a fire there; there's an emergency, and then not calling the fire department and watching it burn down. Jessica Hulsey Nickel heads the Addiction Policy Forum.
