The CDC's 2017 estimate is not a final count.

CDC data show more than 140 Americans die each day from drug overdoses - 91, or 65 percent, from opioids. In parts of New England, where a more unsafe drug supply arrived early, the number of overdoses has begun to fall. Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Vermont all saw declines. Carfentanil is an analog of the synthetic opioid fentanyl. But pain patients and pain advocacy groups have lamented that the opioid epidemic being declared a national emergency has made it more hard to obtain the drugs they legitimately need to manage their severe pain, making the issue complicated. Preliminary 2018 numbers from MA suggest that the death rate there may be continuing to fall. Trump has also set up a presidential council to address the problem.

President Donald Trump has declared the opioid crisis a national public health emergency, but stopped short a year ago of declaring a state of emergency that would've given states access to funding from the federal Disaster Relief Fund.

The Mirror reported in March that overdose deaths in CT have almost tripled in a six-year period, when the state medical examiner made 2017 data available for the first time.

"We're eager to raise awareness at the highest levels of the federal government for a better sense of what happened and the challenges that urban centers face in terms of combatting a consistent vexing presence of people with substance abuse disorder", Harp said.

Nobel-winning writer VS Naipaul dies aged 85
Mr Naipaul notoriously fell out with author Paul Theroux, whom he had mentored, with the spat causing a rift for years. His 1961 novel, A House for Mr Biswas , is regarded by many critics as one of his most seminal works.

Overdose deaths rose sharply in several Mid-Atlantic and Midwestern states.

The report found that workers in occupations with higher rates of work-related injuries had higher rates of opioid overdose deaths.

In New Haven, police arrested two suspects they believe were selling and handing out the drugs. That represents an increase of more than 6,000 deaths, or 9.5 percent, over the estimate for the previous 12-month period. Continuing funding may help more states develop the kind of public health programs that appear to have helped in New England.

The county has reduced medical opioid prescribing; increased addiction treatment resources; expanded community access to an anti-overdose drug called naloxone; and provided addiction treatment to prisoners in its county jail, among other measures. But the package also includes measures that could expand treatment for people who already use opioids. Nebraska had the fewest with just 8.2 deaths per 100,000, a rate less than one-seventh the rate in West Virginia.
