CDC - Heroin overdose death rate doubles in US from 2010-12

That translated to a doubling of the death rate, from one per 100,000 people to 2.1 per 100,000. "Despite these findings, still more than twice as many people died from prescription opioid overdoses as died from heroin in these states in 2012," added the CDC report.
