Study: The opioid crisis may be far worse than we thought

New research appearing in the journal Addiction shows that the number of deaths attributed to opioid-related overdoses could be 28% higher than reported due to incomplete death records. This discrepancy is more pronounced in several states, including Alabama, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, and Indiana, where the estimated number of deaths more than doubles — obscuring the scope of the opioid crisis and potentially affecting programs and funding intended to confront the epidemic.
