Emergency room data shows the opioid crisis continues to expand rapidly

ER visits for opioid overdoses increased in the majority of the 16 states that have been worst affected by the addiction epidemic the CDC's latest data reveals

IL is one of the hardest hit states, with a almost 66 percent increase in suspected opioid overdose visits to the emergency room a year ago.

The report did not include the state rates per 100,000 overdose-related deaths, which is a more stable measure of increases and decreases over time, according to the Delaware Division of Public Health (DPH).

The report claims that opioid overdoses and deaths can be prevented by providing medication-assisted treatment, naloxone (an overdose-reversing drug), treatment and referral services to people suffering from opioid use disorder, and coordinating efforts with other health departments, mental health care providers, community-based organizations and law enforcement.

"We think that the number of people addicted to opioids is relatively stable".

About 40% of opioid overdose deaths involve a prescription opioid, according to the CDC.

The news of his diagnosis comes weeks after Stephen Fry, 60, revealed he is battling prostate cancer and has undergone surgery. PRESENTER Bill Turnbull has revealed the heartbreaking moment he told his children about his incurable prostate cancer.

"This is a very hard and fast-moving epidemic", she said.

The CDC study found that the rate of ER visits for suspected opioid overdoses, from July 2016 to September 2017, went up 30 percent nationally and 35 percent in the 16 states, which got federal money to closely track fatal and nonfatal opioid overdoses. Be that as it may, one factor is likely the distinctions in accessibility of more up to date, profoundly powerful illicit opioids, for example, fentanyl, which have been flooding the nation as of late, Schuchat says. There were 45 heroin-related deaths and 66 overdoses from opioids.

And the rise was not just in rural America: Overdose ED visits in large, metropolitan areas throughout 16 states in the Enhanced State Opioid Overdose Surveillance program increased steadily each quarter for a total increase of 54%, she said.

That investigation demonstrated a 34.5 percent expansion between similar periods in 2016 and 2017. Researchers said overdose rates in that system increased about 30% in all regions and most states.

For example, overdoses increased 105 percent in DE, compared with 80.6 percent in Pennsylvania and 34 percent in Maine.

Henry ready to step in but wants Wenger to have 'last word'
Those who want Arsene Wenger to leave the club are in the vast majority and it seems that now it's a matter of when and not if. Because, as Wenger knows from years of indecision from his superiors, he has no incentive to take matters into his own hands.

Modest decreases were seen in Kentucky, at 15 percent, and statistically insignificant drops of less than 10 percent in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island.

Today - two new reports about opioids. For the non-opioid group, patients were prescribed acetaminophen and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs in the first step.

STEIN: Emergency rooms around the country are reporting that overdoses jumped sharply between 2016 and 2017.

"This fast-moving epidemic does not distinguish age, sex or state or county lines, and it's still increasing in every region of the United States", she said during a media briefing on Tuesday. "So even without an increase in people who are using opioids, the use of an opioid is even more unsafe than it used to be".

The study comes just a week after the White House held a week-long opioid summit.
