    Fulltext.

    To assess mortality attributed to misuse of psychoactive drugs in the United States from 1979 through 1988, the authors obtained from death certificates the annual number of, and age-, sex-, and race-specific data for, deaths in which psychoactive drugs were coded as the underlying or contributing cause.

    Deaths with psychoactive drugs specified as underlying cause (drug-induced)increased from 6,500 (2.9 per 100,000) in 1979 to more than 10,000 (3.8 per 100,000) in 1988.

    Deaths with psychoactive drugs specified as either underlying or contributing cause (drug-related) increased from 7,200 (3.2 per 100,000) in 1979 to more than 14,400 (5.5 per 100,000) in 1988.
