The Time is Now
According to the CDC, overdoses kill more Americans than car crashes or guns – and experts say the crisis hasn’t peaked. Since 2000, the rate of deaths from drug overdoses has increased 137%, including a 200% increase in the rate of overdose deaths involving opioids (opioid pain relievers and heroin). From 2000-2014 nearly half a million persons in the US have died from drug overdoses.
Opioid dependence is a chronic disease that can affect anyone. It could be a friend, co-worker, a spouse, a brother, a sister, or a parent. If you or someone you know may be dependent on opioids, it’s very important to remember you are not alone. Help is available.
