Overdose deaths are down in Michigan, Indiana

Drug deaths are down on both sides of the Indiana-Michigan state line.

Overdose deaths are down in The Hoosier State, leading to the second-highest percentage decrease in the United States. A report from the CDC shows a near-18% decrease in Indiana overdose deaths. That’s a 3-percent decrease compared to 2022. For Indiana, 2,190 people died of an overdose last year. The CDC says Indiana is one of four states that reported a year-over-year decline of 15% or more.

In Michigan, drug deaths fell more than 3% last year, which mirrors the national drop. On Wednesday, Michigan released data that showed nearly 3,000 people died in the state last year from the drug epidemic.

Over 107,000 fatal drug overdoses happened in the United States last year.
