The Injury and Violence Prevention Branch of the Division of Public Health recently revised the provisional data on opioid-related poisoning deaths (NC OCME), opioid overdose emergency department visits (NC DETECT) and statewide harm reduction data (NCHRC). Since many of the Division’s public health partners have been called to focus their time and attention on responding to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the reports are not yet posted on the web but are available as PDF’s below.
