The Opioid Epidemic

Share

The opioid epidemic is on the rise and quickly spreading across the country.

National Institute on Drug Abuse: daily, more than 90 Americans die after overdosing on opioids. Opioids are drugs that include the illegal drug heroin, synthetic opioids such as fentanyl, and pain relievers available legally by prescription, such as oxycodone (OxyContin®), hydrocodone (Vicodin®), codeine, morphine, and many others.

“overdose deaths, particularly from prescription drugs and heroin, have reached epidemic levels.”

The U.S. DEA
