Risk of fatal overdose is high among people on probation but this population is often overlooked.
People under criminal justice supervision in the community are at elevated risk of fatal overdose. For example, a county-level analysis in Allegheny County found that approximately 1 in 3 people who died from overdose were involved with adult probation in the year before their death. Data from the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office showed that people on felony probation in 2018 and 2019 had an overdose rate 15 times that of the general population.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
