Event description

Description

Tennessee Department of Health data show that 1,631 Tennesseans died from drug overdose in 2016, the highest annual number of such deaths in state history. This is an increase from the 1,451 overdose deaths recorded among Tennessee residents in 2015.

According to the TN Department of Health Office of Informatics & Analytics, 1,186 of those deaths occured from opioid overdose. Opioids include both prescription opioid pain relievers such as hydrocodone, oxycodone, and morphine, as well as heroin and opium.

Our goal as the Tennessee Department of Health is to work together to find new ways to address this evolving epidemic.
