  • CONCLUSIONS: This study indicates that the incidence of heroin overdoses has significantly increased over the last several years, and the rates of hepatitis C virus infection 4-fold since the start of the study period. Patients admitted for non-heroin opioid overdose were more likely to be admitted to the hospital and intensive care unit compared with those admitted for heroin overdose. The rise in overdose events only further illustrates that there is a gap in our understanding of the cycle of addiction, drug abuse, and overdose events. This article is protected by copyright.
