Cincinnati is ranked sixth on a list of the nation’s worst cities for drug overdoses, according to criminal justice blog ArrestRecords.com.
Along with Cincinnati, two other Ohio cities made the list: Dayton topped it in first place, Toledo came in tenth.
The site mapped out drug-related overdoses across the country using data from the Center for Disease Control. The list only looks at cities with a population above 400,000.
The numbers come from 2014, the most recent year with available data.
The rankings considered not just the number of overdoses, but also the survival rate of those instances.
According to the site, 2014 was the worst year on record for drug overdoses across the country, and 61 percent were caused by opioids such as heroin and painkillers.
