Federal health officials say there's an alarming jump in drug overdose deaths among middle-aged women.
A new CDC report shows the rate of deaths from opioids soared by nearly 500-percent for women over 30. It noted the biggest increase in drug overdose deaths during the past two decades was among women aged 45 to 64.
Most of the overdoses involved synthetic painkillers, heroin and drugs like Xanax and Valium. More than 70-thousand Americans died from drug overdoses last year alone.
