Drug Overdoses and Adverse Exposures to Drugs

Drug Overdoses Scorecard was created to track the population and program level indicators and measures for general drug overdoses, prescription drug overdoses, particularly opioid-based drugs, and heroin overdoses. This Scorecard is related to the Poisonings Scorecard, a Healthy CT 2020 priority topic, because it is a subset of the poisonings that occurred in Connecticut.  Adverse Exposures to Drugs was included in this Scorecard due to the increased rate of newborns exposed to opioids in-utero.
