Emergency rooms can provide naloxone, the overdose antidote, to reverse an overdose's symptoms and prevent death.

Alana Vivolo-Kantor, PhD, a behavioral scientist in CDC's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, said in a statement that people who have already suffered from overdoses are statistically more likely to suffer from another.

The report measured the third quarter of 2016 through the third quarter of 2017, and was the first time the federal government collected emergency department data on opioid overdoses.

"Seeing frequent overdoses, especially in young patients, can take an emotional toll", Sharp said.

That's partly because many overdoses occur away from hospitals.

Giants Acquire Alec Ogletree In Trade With Rams
A first-round pick out of Georgia in the 2013 draft, Ogletree had his best season in 2016, when he was named second-team All-Pro. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday because National Football League trades can't be announced until March 14.

That survey showed an increase of 29.7 percent in 52 jurisdictions in 45 states between July through September 2016 and the same period in 2017, according to the report.

However, the CDC says it's seeing its highest-ever opioid-related death rates. The report also estimated a 30 percent increase for 45 states.

The researchers found that 142,557 emergency department visits (15.7 per 10,000 visits) were suspected opioid-involved overdoses from July 2016 through September 2017. The rates of suspected opioid overdoses rose by 5% each quarter on average.

Most of Wisconsin's increase came in late 2016 and early 2017, with the trend slowing last spring and summer.

For the 16 states, there were about 120,000 opioid overdose visits to hospital emergency rooms in one year.

The rate of such ER visits rose 105 percent in DE and 81 percent in Pennsylvania. The only significant drop was in Kentucky (15 percent).

However, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island are among states showing a decrease in such visits, according to the CDC data.

Data from ER visits, rather than overdose deaths, is useful because they show when and where people are overdosing, information states can use to identify where resources are needed, said Dr. Anne Schuchat, acting CDC director, in a conference call Tuesday with reporters.
