A listing of each accidental death associated with drug overdose in Connecticut from 2012 to June 2017. A "Y" value under the different substance columns indicates that particular substance was detected.
Data are derived from an investigation by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner which includes the toxicity report, death certificate, as well as a scene investigation.
The “Morphine (Not Heroin)” values are related to the differences between how Morphine and Heroin are metabolized and therefor detected in the toxicity results. Heroin metabolizes to 6-MAM which then metabolizes to morphine. 6-MAM is unique to heroin, and has a short half-life (as does heroin itself). Thus, in some heroin deaths, the toxicity results will not indicate whether the morphine is from heroin or prescription morphine. In these cases the Medical Examiner may be able to determine the cause based on the scene investigation (such as finding heroin needles). If they find prescription morphine at the scene it is certified as “Morphine (not heroin).” Therefor, the Cause of Death may indicate Morphine, but the Heroin or Morphine (Not Heroin) may not be indicated.
“Any Opioid” – If the Medical Examiner cannot conclude whether it’s RX Morphine or heroin based morphine in the toxicity results, that column may be checked
Town level data on depicting the number of admissions, and individuals served per year in treatment programs funded or operated by the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, where the primary drug at admission was an opioid. Clients entering these programs were treated for their opioid related disorder as a result of it being the primary drug at the time of admission. This dataset does not reflect ALL individuals in Connecticut who have participated in an opioid related treatment program, but only service provided by the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, nor are these programs specifically designated as "opioid treatment."
