Experts have previously suggested a decrease in the availability of prescription opioids could be driving increases in the rates of heroin abuse.
The states with the highest rate of drug overdose deaths in 2015 were West Virginia, New Hampshire, Kentucky and Ohio.
Bolstered by a huge increase in cases involving heroin, the rate at which Americans die from drug overdoses has more than doubled since the end of the millennium.
While overdoses were up among all age groups, in 2015, adults 45-years-old to 54-years-old have the highest rate of overdose deaths. The majority of the deaths are attributed to opioids - heroin and prescription painkillers such as Oxycontin and Vicodin.
Overdose deaths in the United States almost tripled from 1990 to 2015, according to new figures released Friday by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Authors of the study note in 2010 only eight percent of all fatal drug overdoses stemmed from heroin.
"Each year, I think it's hard to imagine it getting much worse and yet last year we had the highest number of deaths on record", said Dr. Caleb Alexander, co-director for the Johns Hopkins Center for Drug Safety and Effectiveness, according to ABC.
While the number of heroin-related deaths quadrupled from 2010 to 2015, the percentage share of all overdose deaths that were related to heroin tripled, from 8 percent to 25 percent.
The four states with the highest age-adjusted drug overdose death rates in 2015 were West Virginia (41.5), New Hampshire (34.3), Kentucky (29.9), and OH (29.9).

Friday's study found that the percentage of overdose deaths from prescription drugs such as oxycodone and hydrocodone fell to 24% in 2015 from 29% five years earlier. But a 2015 study by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that the declining price of heroin and its increasing purity might be causing more people to use it. "Heroin is part of America's larger drug abuse problem".
The national death toll is highest among non-Hispanic whites, with overdoses causing 21.1 deaths per 100,000 people.
Slovis said some illicit synthetic opioids can be 50 to 100 times more potent than heroin.
