Why is this important?

Drug abuse and its related problems are among society's most pervasive health and social concerns. Causes of drug-induced deaths include dependent and non-dependent use of drugs (both legal and illegal use) and also poisoning from medically prescribed drugs. Addicted persons frequently engage in self-destructive and criminal behavior, which can result in injury or death. In addition, recreational drug-use can lead to unintentional overdose and death.
The Healthy People 2020 national health target is to reduce the drug-induced death rate to 11.3 deaths per 100,000 population.
