Deaths Due to Alcohol, Drugs and Suicide Have Soared Among Young Adults
Deaths from alcohol, drugs and suicide have soared among young adults ages 18 to 34, according to a new analysis.
Heroin and other opioids are ravaging communities across America. Deaths from heroin increased 328% between 2010 and 2015, and drug deaths from fentanyl and other synthetic opioids are now seeing a sharp rise as well. More Americans die from drug overdoses than in car crashes, and this increasing trend is driven by Rx painkillers.
