Between 1992 and 2012, opioid dispensing increased 15-fold (500,000 to 7.5 million) and the corresponding cost to the Australian government increased 32-fold ($8.5 million to $271 million). Opioid-related harms also increased; opioid-related hospitalisations increased from 605 to 1464 cases (1998-2009), outnumbering hospitalisations due to heroin poisonings since 2001. Deaths due to accidental poisoning (pharmaceutical opioids and illicit substances combined) increased from 151 to 266 (2002-2011), resulting in a rise in the death rate of 0.78 to 1.19 deaths/100,000 population over 10 years. Death rates increased 1.8 fold in males and 1.4 fold in females. Read more about An overview of the patterns of prescription opioid use, costs and related harms in Australia
