Opioid Injury & Death Data

Unfortunately, our community is one of several communities hit hard by opioid-related injury and death. Data from the Injury & Violence Prevention Branch indicates in 20196 Cumberland County lost 8256 residents to unintentional drug poisonings. While 2020 death data is delayed due to COVID-19, 2020 ED data suggests overdoses may have increased during COVID-19 

In 2020, 13.8% of residences received dispensed opioid pills in Cumberland County. For more local data, visit https://injuryfreenc.ncdhhs.gov/DataSurveillance/Poisoning.htm.
