    Article - En anglais

    In the period 1987-1991 a total of 739 fatalities among drug addicts was investigated at the three University Institutes of Forensic Medicine in Denmark.

    The annual number rose from 130-140 in the first 4 years to 192 in 1991, and 80% were males.

    The mean and median age for both males and females increased by 1 year in the period.

    The main drug of abuse was heroin, in most cases supplemented by various other drugs, and in almost all cases taken intravenously.

    In about one-third of the cases each year there was information of abuse of alcohol in addition.

    In the poisoning cases, the main drug of poisoning was morphine/heroin, constituting 35-55% of the cases each year.

    As regards methadone-poisoning cases, the number increased significantly in 1991 compared to the first 4 years.
