from The Journal of Emergency Medicine

For this study, a retrospective review of patients with heroin and prescription opioid abuse from 2009–2014 was conducted in one adult urban emergency department. The primary outcome was the prevalence of heroin and prescription opioid patients residing in urban, suburban and rural ZIP codes over time. There was an increasing trend in prescription opioid prevalence in all regions from 2009 to 2011. After 2011, prescription opioid prevalence decreased in urban and suburban ZIP codes but not rural ZIP codes. more
