According to the CDC, most overdose deaths, a staggering 70% in 2018, involved opioids. Nearly 450,000 people died between, 1999 and 2018, from overdoses involving any opioid, including prescription and illicit opioids. From 2015 to 2017, nearly all racial/ethnic groups and age groups experienced significant increases in opioid-involved and synthetic opioid–involved overdose death rates.
