TLDR
This study examines more recent data from a larger number of countries participating in the International Clearinghouse for Birth Defects Monitoring Systems to address the questions of whether such increases are worldwide and continuing and whether there are geographic patterns to any observed increases.
Vital signs: overdoses of prescription opioid pain relievers---United States, 1999--2008.
TLDR
Wide variation among states in the nonmedical use of OPR and overdose rates cannot be explained by underlying demographic differences in state populations but is related to wide variations in OPR prescribing.
