  • This report summarizes the latest information and data available on prescription and illicit drugs, including various health outcomes, health behaviors, prescribing patterns, overdoses, and deaths.

    Prescription and illicit drug addiction and overdose remains a critical public health issue in the United States. Both prescription opioid pain relievers and illicit drugs (like heroin or synthetic opioids, other than methadone) are fueling the crisis.

    Key data from the report:

    In 2016, providers wrote more than 66 prescriptions for every 100 people in the United States.

    In 2015, 47.7 million people, which is almost 18 out of 100 Americans, have used illicit drugs (like marijuana, cocaine (including crack), heroin, hallucinogens, inhalants, or methamphetamine) or misused prescription drugs (like pain relievers, tranquilizers, stimulants, or sedatives).

    In 2014, almost 260,000 Americans were hospitalized for nonfatal, unintentional drug poisonings.

    A record number of drug overdose deaths happened in 2015, with more than 52,000 Americans dying. More than 63% of drug overdose deaths involved a prescription or illicit opioid.
