Overdose Deaths From Narcotics Keep Climbing, by Scott Hensley, #nurseup #nursefriendly #mhsm #rnchat #MH #drugabuse

Overdose Deaths From Narcotics Keep Climbing, by Scott Hensley, February 20, 201312:27 PM:"For the 11th year running, deaths from drug overdoses rose in the U.S in 2010.
Pharmaceuticals were involved in more than half of the 38,329 overdose deaths that year.
Opioid painkillers, such as hydrocodone, or Vicodin, were the most common prescription drugs implicated. They were cited in 16,651 fatalities, or 44 percent of the total.
When the focus was narrowed to prescription drugs, the opioid painkillers were, predictably, an even clearer problem. The drugs were involved in three-quarters of overdoses."
