Drug-related hospital emergency room cases provide one measure of the morbidity associated with drug abuse.
Over time, they indicate if problems associated with particular drugs are increasing or decreasing.
These trends may be influenced by a number of factors including increased prevalence of use, increased dosages, increased potency, increased frequency of use, the aging of drug addicts, the use of more dangerous routes of administration, and the combined use of two or more drugs.
