community that is behind you!


Per the Indiana State Department of Health, drug overdose deaths in Indiana have been on

the rise for almost two decades, with a loss of more than 15,000 Hoosiers since 1999. In 2017,

Indiana reached its highest age-adjusted drug overdose rate at 29.4 per 100,000, a statistically

significant 22% increase from 2016. The Indiana 2017 rate was also significantly higher than

the national rate of 21.7 per 100,000. From 2016-2017, Indiana had the third-highest drug

overdose rate increase in the nation behind only New Jersey (29%) and Nebraska (26%).

In 2017, there were over 1,800 drug overdose deaths in Indiana averaging five Hoosiers a

day. These numbers have skyrocketed since the appearance of COVID-19.
