Wilmington, NC ranks #1 for opioid abuse

Updated: Dec 11, 2019

A recent report from Castlight Health named Wilmington, North Carolina the top city for opioid abuse in the United States. The study estimates that around 11.6% of Wilmington's population is abusing opioid prescriptions.

The report is based off of numbers from over 1 million people on employer-based insurance. This leaves all the numbers that are outside of insurance dealing out of this report - meaning these numbers could be even lower than what it really is.
