2018 National Health Center Data

In 2018, for the first time in more than two decades, fewer Americans died of drug overdoses than the year before. Science- and community-based efforts to combat the opioid crisis are beginning to make a significant difference. However, there are some disturbing trends, such as rising rates of methamphetamine overdoses, and our work is far from finished. HHS is deeply committed to improving the physical and mental health and well-being of every American as we work to address the evolving crisis.
