MEDICATION ASSISTED TREATMENT NEWS 

DRUG OVERDOSES SOAR IN JEFFERSON COUNTY, ALABAMA – A new report from the Jefferson County Coroner shows a huge increase in overdose deaths last year. Almost 100 more people died from drug overdoses in 2021, compared to the year before.

Last year, 401 people died from overdoses. In 2020, that number was 302 and in 2019 is was 236. That means in only two years, overdose deaths rose by 70% in the county.

The coroner breaks down the numbers even further in his report: The leading age group in overdose deaths is people between 40 and 49. The report also shows more white males die by overdose than any other gender and race.

Dr. Darlene Traffanstedt, a medical director with the Jefferson County Department of Health (JCDH), said fentanyl is the big driver in these numbers.
