Drug overdose epidemic to recede soon, study claims A study by researchers at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health is the first to apply Farr’s Law on the rise and fall of epidemics to an outbreak that isn’t, strictly speaking, infectious in origin: drug overdoses. At present, more than 40,000 Americans die every year by unintentional drug overdose–a number that has ballooned tenfold since 1980. In a study of smallpox in the mid-1800s, pioneering British epidemiologist William Farr discovered that the rate and duration of the epidemic’s rise was mirrored in its decline. Using Farr’s Law, the Mailman School researchers project that the drug overdose epidemic will peak at about 50,000 annual deaths in 2017 before declining to a non-epidemic state of approximately 6,000 deaths in the year 2035–at roughly the same rate seen before the start of the epidemic. Results appear online in the journal Injury Epidemiology.
