    In Massachusetts, opioid-related overdoses are on the rise and in the majority of these cases, fentanyl is present. Among the 1,899 opioid-related deaths in 2016, 69% tested positive for fentanyl. Heroin was present in roughly 1/3 of opioid-related deaths.1

    In 2015, the rate of overdose deaths in Massachusetts was among the highest in the country (25.7 per 100,000).2 Over the past 5 years, the number of opioid-related deaths increased from 742 cases in 2012 to a projected 2,069 in 2017.1

    Although heroin abuse accounts for more than half of enrollees in Massachusetts treatment centers, it is certainly not the only drug of abuse in the state.
