Approximately 16 Canadians a day are hospitalized due to opioid poisoning — a 19% increase over 2 years ago. Concerns about the effects of illicit drugs and opioids were first raised in Western Canada, but CIHI’s new data shows that hospitalization rates are increasing across most of the country. As hospital stays due to opioid poisoning keep rising, what’s the impact on our health care systems? Find out more in our latest release.
