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.
"Long before we receive data from death certificates, emergency department data can point to alarming increases in opioid overdoses", Schuchat said in a statement. Too often, addicts are simply revived and sent home without follow-up care, only to overdose again, she says.
Schuchat called the report "very, very concerning" and said it served as a "wake-up call about the need to improve what happens when a patient leaves the emergency department". "The quantity of Americans encountering opioid overdoses is as yet expanding".
"We wanted more timely information", Schuchat says.
