West Virginia County Prescription Data Reports

The West Virginia Board of Pharmacy, in collaboration with the West Virginia Violence and Injury Prevention Program (WV VIPP) and the West Virginia University Injury Control Research Center (ICRC), under the direction of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), are working to address prescription drug misuse, diversion, and overdose within the state of West Virginia. Prescription drug overdose continues to be a major issue in West Virginia. Preliminary data from the West Virginia Health Statistics Center shows that in 2018, over 895 people died in association with drug misuse (including prescription and illicit drugs), and the number continues to rise. This is nearly three times the national average. To help combat this epidemic, CDC provided specific indicators to identify high-risk areas within the state to allow for intervention and community education. The county specific details for these indicators are available at the following link:
