A recent analysis published in Addiction found that in 2016, 27% of overdose visits to U. S. emergency departments involving cocaine and 14% involving psychostimulants also involved an opioid.
The study also found that since 2006, rates of overdose emergency departments visits involving cocaine and psychostimulants with an opioid increased in recent years, as did those involving psychostimulants without opioids.
Overdose deaths involving cocaine and psychostimulants increased in the past several years with and without opioids.
