Beyond the tragedy for thousands of Kentucky families, opioid abuse and overdose deaths are a problem for state businesses working to find and keep good personnel in a tight labor market.

The commonwealth ranks 10th in opioid-related deaths in the United States, with Kentuckians of prime working age at the highest risk. Economic impact figures specific to Kentucky are not available but the estimated cost to the U.S. economy in 2016 was $504 billion, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

In 2016, 42,249 Americans died overdosing on opioids. The 1,404 Kentuckians among them represented “a rate of 23.6 deaths per 100,000 persons and nearly double the national rate,” according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
