Opiate overdose emergencies and deaths are common in our communities. According to the CDC, there were 68,600 drug overdose deaths and 47,600 opioid drug related deaths in 2018. In Colorado, there were 1000 drug overdose deaths. About 32,000 of the 2018 deaths involved potent synthetic opioids such as fentanyl. Fentanyl-related overdose deaths in Denver tripled between 2019 and 2018, according to data from the the Denver Department of Public Health & Environment and the Office of the Medical Examiner. 75% of overdose related deaths occur outside of a medical setting, at home or on the street.
