Deaths From Drug Overdoses, Alcohol and Suicide Leveled Off in 2018

A new study from the Drug Free Partnership addresses the death rate from alcohol, drugs and suicide.

“In 2018, more than 150,000 Americans died from alcohol, drugs and suicide combined, according to the study from the nonprofit health policy groups Trust for America’s Health and the Well Being Trust. The death rate—46.4 deaths per 100,000—was level with the 2017 rate, the study found. It is the first time since 1999 that there has not been an annual increase.”
