State Unintentional Drug Overdose Reporting System (SUDORS) Report, 2021

SUDORS aims to enhance state surveillance of drug overdoses to inform the development of prevention efforts across the state with the goal of reducing overdose deaths.

The information collected is then entered into the National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS). Data used in this report are provisional as of December 2021 and are subject to change as information is added or clarified.
