Connecticut Overdose Deaths 2018
written by Medic Scribe on the 08th March 2019 at 15:55

The official death numbers for 2018 are out from the Connecticut Medical Examiner’s office.

Connecticut Accidental Drug Intoxication Deaths

1017 people died in Connecticut of accidental overdoses, down 21 from 2017.  This is the first decline (albeit minor) after six years of escalation.

746 people died in Connecticut due to the presence of Fentanyl, up 71 from 2017.

Still  much work to go before we can rest.

Here’s a town by town breakdowns of deaths by residence and deaths by overdose location.  95 of the fatal overdoses occurred in Hartford.
