View annual counts of Accidental or Undetermined overdose deaths for 2012 forward, including provisional estimates of annual counts of overdose deaths for recent years, as noted with an asterisk and the month the data was pulled. NOTE: Finalized death records for overdose deaths are often delayed by 3-6 months. Counties labeled “no value” have data suppressed because the counts are between 1 and 9.
Overdose Deaths are classified using the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision (ICD–10). Drug-poisoning deaths are identified using underlying cause-of-death codes X40–X44, and Y10–Y14, and include the following:
- R99 when the Injury Description indicates an overdose death.
- X49 when literal COD is Mixed or Combined or Multiple Substance Toxicity, as these are likely drug overdoses
- X47 when substance indicated is difluoroethane, alone or in combination with other drugs

This dataset reports the name of the site, street address, city, county, zip code, telephone number, latitude, and longitude of Pennsylvania Single County Authorities (SCAs). SCAs receive state and federal dollars through contracts with the Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs (DDAP) to plan, coordinate, manage, and implement the delivery of drug and alcohol prevention, intervention, and treatment services at the local level.
The Pennsylvania Association of County Drug and Alcohol Administrators (PACDAA) is a professional association that represents the Single County Authorities (SCAs) across the commonwealth who receive state and federal dollars through contracts with the Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs (DDAP), to plan, coordinate, programmatically and fiscally manage and implement the delivery of drug and alcohol prevention, intervention, and treatment services at the local level.
SCAs also receive funding for treatment services from the PA Department of Human Services (DHS), Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS). These services funded by DHS are primarily targeted to individuals in non-hospital residential care who are eligible for Medical assistance, or to a continuum of treatment services for those individuals no longer eligible as a result of welfare reforms.

No FIPS code or county code exist for Pennsylvania State Police and Capitol Police. Also, counties labelled “NA” do not have municipal police departments and are only covered by Pennsylvania State Police.
This interactive map provides users with the ability to view the number of opioid related incidents, quarterly by county. Opioid related incidents refer to the number of seizures of a particular drug by the Pennsylvania State Police only. Use the drop-down menus to select the year and quarter(s) you would like to view. The drug drop-down menu will allow you to differentiate by opioid drug type. The opioid incidents reflected on this map may not include all active investigations by the Pennsylvania State Police.
This data set includes the estimated number of individuals in Pennsylvania with Drug Use Disorder, which is an approximation for Opioid Use Disorder prevalence. The estimates are developed by applying mortality weights derived from the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics to statewide illicit drug use estimates from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH, sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration).
