The Triangle Club Development/Outreach VISTA
 
 
 
New Hampshire has the second highest rate of opioid-related overdose deaths in the country. In 2016, New Hampshire experienced 437 opioid-related overdose deaths¬¬¬—a rate of 35.8 deaths per 100,000 persons—nearly 3 times higher than the national rate of 13.3 deaths per 100,000. From 2013 through 2016, opioid-related deaths in New Hampshire tripled. This increase was mainly driven by the number of deaths related to synthetic opioids (predominately fentanyl), which according to the National Institute of Drug Abuse, increased more than tenfold during this time. Deaths attributed to opioid overdoses in New Hampshire in 2017 are recorded at 485. Strafford County has the second highest rate of suspected drug use which resulted in overdose deaths per capita at 3.43 deaths per 10,000 population.
