A new study by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) showed that from 2015 to 2019, overdose deaths involving psychostimulants other than cocaine increased 180%.

NDEWS Report – A new study by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) published in JAMA Psychiatry estimated national trends and correlates of methamphetamine use in the US. Mortality data from the National Vital Statistics System showed that from 2015 to 2019, overdose deaths involving psychostimulants other than cocaine increased 180%. Using data from the 2015 to 2019 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), the research team estimated increases in methamphetamine use (43%), frequent use (66%), co-use with cocaine (60%), and prevalence of methamphetamine use disorder without injection (105%) among adults over the same period.
