About the Opioid Crisis
The opioid crisis and COVID-19 pandemic are intersecting with each other and presenting new challenges for families, communities, and businesses.
Over 81,000 drug overdose deaths occurred in the United States in the 12 months ending in May 2020, the highest number of overdose deaths ever recorded in a 12-month period, according to the CDC.
In Michigan, preliminary data from 2020 suggest that COVID-19 has led to at least a 15 percent increase in opioid overdose deaths.
