OK Substance Abuse Facts
The state of Oklahoma has one of the highest rates of opioid prescribing in the U.S., a number that has remained steady over the last few years.1 Interestingly, OK is one of the very few states that saw a decrease in the number of prescription opioid overdose deaths from 2014-2015.2 However, while this number went down, deaths from synthetic opioids like fentanyl increased by about 26%.3 Overdose deaths from heroin also rose quite a bit by more than 40%.4
In 2013, a plan was put in place by the state with the goal of reducing unintentional opioid overdose deaths by 15% over a 5-year period.5 It included plans to increase the availability of treatment in the state, increase funding of and expand community-based opioid treatment services, and provide ongoing support of naloxone programs within the community.
Statistics show that improvements have been made since its launch, with opioid overdose death rates decreasing by 9% from 2013-20145 and a further 13% from 2014 to 2015.3,4,6 There is still work to be done, however, as both prescription and illicit drugs take many lives each year.
