Fentanyl Overdoses on the Rise

  • Geographic Patterns in Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome and Prescription Opioids in Kentucky - Data in this PBSS issue brief released by the Commonwealth of Kentucky examines the relationship between rates of Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) in various regions of the state versus risky opioid prescribing behaviors observed in these same regions. Findings in Kentucky reveal a close association between NAS and high opioid prescribing rates in the preceding year among women of childbearing age.
  • Opioid Prescribing: Where you live matters - The amount of opioids prescribed in the United States peaked in 2010 and then decreased each year through 2015. Despite the overall decrease, the amount of opioids remains at high levels and varies from county to county in the U.S., according to the latest Vital Signs report. The amount of opioids prescribed in the U.S. is still too high, with too many opioid prescriptions for too many days at too high a dosage.
