The Opioid Epidemic, and More from CRS
The annual number of drug overdose deaths in the United States involving opioids has more than quadrupled since 1999, a new report from the Congressional Research Service notes.
“CDC estimates that in 2016, more than 63,000 people died from a drug overdose, and more than 42,000 of these deaths involved prescription or illicit opioids.” See The Opioid Epidemic and the Food and Drug Administration: Legal Authorities and Recent Agency Action, June 5, 2018.
