Heroin epidemic continues to claim lives: CDC report

Overdose deaths involving fentanyl and tramadol also increased, according to data from 2015 which is the latest year available. Deaths increased in all age groups, with adults aged 45 to 54 having the highest drug overdose death rate. More than 33,000 people died from opioids in 2015, and the CDC noted almost 500,000 people between 2000 to 2015 have suffered related deaths.

In 2010, 29% of fatal overdoses involved so-called "natural" and "semisynthetic" opioids (morphine, oxycodone), while only about 12% involved methadone, a "synthetic" opioid.

MA ranks among the worst states in the nation for drug overdose deaths, part of a cluster in the Northeast where opioids and other narcotics have spiked OD numbers, federal disease watchdogs say. In that time frame, heroin deaths increased from 8 percent to 25 percent.

While the number of heroin-related deaths quadrupled from 2010 to 2015, the percentage share of all overdose deaths that were related to heroin tripled, from 8 percent to 25 percent.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released data Friday showing the nation's overdose rate at 16.3 per 100,000 people in 2015 - more than 2.5 times the rate it was in 1999.

The new report from CDC suggests that the increased use of drugs is closely related to the price cut of heroin and also the increase in its purity.

"It's that it's not just heroin anymore between the fentanyl [and] of the synthetic variants including carfentanil" an elephant tranquilizer, said Slovis.

Overdose deaths are so common that they're driving down the average life expectancy for white Americans, said Salsitz, who is with Mount Sinai Health System in New York City. In Arizona, a similar law limits prescriptions to seven days.

The DEA has issued a list of drugs that are fentanyl variations as they consider them as "no now accepted for medical use and a high potential for abuse".

Dr. Larissa Mooney, director of the University of California Los Angeles Addiction Medicine Clinic, said the new study highlighted the need for opioid addiction treatment. It granted $1 billion to the diminishment of opioid-related deaths.

Last year, the CDC published a body of guidelines to physicians across the country to stop opioid prescriptions, as the numbers presented by the study are worrying the entire country.
