Number of Teen Deaths from Overdoses Soars

TEENS DYING FROM OPIOID OVERDOSES

More teens dying from overdoses.

Staggering new numbers on the number of teens dying from an overdose.

A new government report reveals a rise in the number of overdose deaths between 2014 and 2015 after declining for several years.

It appears opioids, especially heroin, are the reason for the big jump.

Heroin related deaths tripled between 1999 and 2015.

Researchers say the majority of overdose deaths were accidental.
