The Opioid Crisis is Real
Every day, more than 90 Americans die from opioid overdose. The total economic burden of prescription opioid misuse in the U.S. is $78.5 billion a year, including the costs of healthcare, lost productivity, addiction treatment and criminal justice involvment. That’s about $2,500 every second!
While there is certainly much that could be addressed with the pharmaceutical industry and government, men and women are suffering right now, shackled to an unbreakable dependence to pain pills. What’s more, their families are suffering.
Your help is needed to break this destructive cycle by affording them a way out.
