IDPH: State ‘showing progress’ toward goal of reducing opioid deaths

There were 2,167 opioid deaths in Illinois last year, down from 2,202 in 2017. “Although any decrease in deaths is something to be celebrated, this decrease was driven primarily by a decline in deaths among non-Hispanic whites,” she said.
