Renewed calls for overdose prevention sites following string of Toronto deaths

Renewed calls for overdose prevention sites following string of Toronto deaths

Preliminary data from MA illustrates the death rate will continue to fall in 2018.

The provisional number of deaths is calculated using confirmed reports of death, then adjusting to account for delays in reporting and autopsy results. Deaths involving natural opiates, including oxycodone and hydrocone seem to have plateaued.

Opioids, which include prescription painkillers along with heroin and other illegal synthetic opioid drugs, contributed 49,068 to the total number of overdose deaths, the report indicates. Carfentanil is an analog of the synthetic opioid fentanyl.

More than 40,000 people died last from opioid overdoses past year, and almost 30,000 people died from overdoses of synthetic opioids, like fentanyl. The CDC adjusts these figures to correct for underreporting, since some recorded deaths are still pending full investigation.

States with the highest increases in drug deaths include Nebraska (33 percent), North Carolina (23 percent), New Jersey (21 percent), in (15 percent), Arkansas (11 percent), ME (11 percent), West Virginia (11 percent), SC (10 percent) and Tennessee (10 percent). Now, deaths are more widespread and the toll differs by state.

That partnership was really crucial for us. "He's worked extremely hard since he's come back to the group as he always does". But it still needed a robust effort from two of the side's senior batsmen to restore the dressing room's confidence.

Though the number of deaths rose in most states previous year, the number of fatal drug overdoses declined in 14 states, including Rhode Island (minus 7 percent), Vermont (minus 6 percent) and MA (minus 1 percent).

In Utah, overdose deaths are expected to drop by nearly 12 percent, from 751 in 2017 to 662 in 2018.

"It is important to note that this data encompasses both intentional and accidental overdoses", added Ebied, who was not involved in the CDC report. "But just like the opioid medications used in humans, these drugs have potentially serious risks, not just for the animal patients, but also because of their potential to lead to addiction, abuse and overdose in humans who may divert them for their own use", Gottlieb said in a statement. It's 100 times more potent than fentanyl and 10,000 times more potent than morphine.

Ito said Utah's education and tracking programs have become national models.
