The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports the number of emergency room visits for opioid overdoses more than doubled between July 2016 and September 2017 in Wisconsin. That’s the biggest increase in 16 states which were tracked by the federal center. Wisconsin had more than 34-hundred visits to its emergency rooms. E-R visits rose by about 30 percent nationwide when patients sought help for suspected opioid overdoses. The C-D-C says the trend shows the need to enhance mental health services, treatment for addiction and distribution of overdose-reversing drugs.
