The Health Research Board released data from the National Drug-Related Deaths Index (NDRDI) for 2017 in mid-December. There were 786 such deaths recorded, up from 772 in 2016. To put this appalling toll into context, there were 158 deaths due to road traffic accidents in the same year. In response, the Government invests millions of euro and promises more gardaí to reduce the toll from accidents still further, but we hear precious little about the need to reduce drug-related deaths.
