From 2006 to 2012, 38 pain pills per person per year supplied in Tuscarawas County


An analysis of federal records shows that from 2006 to 2012, there were 24,951,052 prescription pain pills, enough for 38 pills per person per year, supplied to Tuscarawas County.

 

The Washington Post conducted the analysis of the distribution of two opioids — oxycodone and hydrocodone — based on data from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.

 

“That’s a lot of pills per person per year no matter how you slice it,” said Pamela Trimmer, OhioGuidestone staff member, serving residents of Tuscarawas and Carroll counties.
