OPIOID USE IN THE DISTRICT


This Council Period, there are a series of bills related to the opioid epidemic under consideration by the City Council, and the Medical Society is addressing their impact on physicians and patient care. Contact MSDC with questions.

 

 

According to a report by the American Enterprise Institute, DC ranked 2nd behind West Virginia in terms of the economic burden caused by the epidemic, and just ahead of third-place Maryland when measured by the per-capita cost.

The CDC found that opioid overdose deaths are increasing in nearly all parts of the population. Washington, DC had the highest increase in fatalities.
