In just one year, overdoses from opioids jumped by about 30 percent, according to a report released Tuesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Acting CDC director Dr. Anne Schuchat said emergency room visit data is useful because it shows when and where people are overdosing.
"The fast-moving opioid overdose epidemic continues and is accelerating". "This data sends a wake up call about the need to improve what happens when patients leave the emergency department".
"Seeing frequent overdoses, especially in young patients, can take an emotional toll", Sharp said. Wisconsin had the largest increase of the states measured, a 108 percent surge in emergency department utilization.

For the 16 states, there were about 120,000 opioid overdose visits to hospital emergency rooms in one year.
The regions particularly hit hard were Wisconsin (108.6 percent), DE (105 percent), Pennsylvania (80.6 percent), and IL (65.5 percent). In Kentucky, the CDC's analysis showed a 15 percent drop in overdoses. But some states, such as Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island showed a slight decrease.
"Opioid overdoses increased for men and women, all age groups, and all regions", said the report.
Dr. Thomas Eiseman, an addiction medicine specialist at Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital in west suburban Winfield, said there has been a noticeable increase in opioid-related visits over the last six months to a year, both among bored, disaffected youths and middle-aged users.
Others say the key is integrating addiction treatment better into the health care system.
