Opioid Epidemic

"Since 2000, deaths from opioid overdoses have increased by 430 percent in Minnesota." This quote from Lt. Gov. Smith, in a March press release, drives home the reality of this staggering increase. Native Americans and women have been disproportionately affected by this epidemic, according to the 2016 Tribal-State Opioid Summit report. This new report includes recommended strategies for tribal and state leaders to work together to address the epidemic.

Another timely report, Drug Abuse Trends in the Minneapolis/St. Paul Metropolitan Area compares detailed statistics from 2015 to 2016 for the metro area on mortality, addiction treatment, top prescription drugs dispensed, and more. The data shows that opioid-related deaths were higher in 2016 than any time in the last decade (see exhibit 3 on page 8).

Earlier this year, the library added the report: Opioids: Preventing and Addressing Prescription Drug Abuse by the Office of the Minnesota Attorney General. This report takes a more comprehensive view of the epidemic in Minnesota by explaining opioids and national opioid abuse trends, federal and state initiatives, and recommendations to address abuse.

At the end of 2016, the CDC issued a state-by-state comparison of drug overdose deaths - with a focus on opioid-related deaths. This informative report, Increases in Drug and Opioid-Involved Overdose Deaths - United States, 2010-2015, shows a sharp increase in nearly every state. The report refers to opioids as "the most significant drug-related threat to the United States."

The reports above are available at the Legislative Reference Library. Contact a librarian at 651-296-8338 or refdesk@lrl.leg.mn if you'd like to check out any of these publications.
