Supplementary notes

National Programme on Substance Abuse Deaths (NPSAD) drug-related deaths are those deaths reported voluntarily to the NPSAD by coroners. Responses were voluntarily submitted from a total of 78 out of 99 coroners' jurisdictions in England, giving a total coverage rate of 78.8%.
An NPSAD case is defined as a death where any of the following criteria are met at a completed inquest, fatal accident inquiry or similar investigation:
- One or more psychoactive substance directly implicated in death;
- History of dependence or abuse of psychoactive drugs;
- Presence of Controlled Drugs at post mortem; or
- Cases with deaths directly due to drugs but with no inquest.
There were 1.033 drug-related deaths in 2012 involving psychoactive drugs. The deaths detailed here sum to a higher amount. This is due to one death potentially involving more than one drug.
** 'Alcohol in combination' is a case where the death involved at least one psychoactive drug and alcohol.
