Recognizing An Urgent Need
The opioid crisis is impacting families and communities across the country. An estimated 220 Americans die every day (80,318 in the past 12 months) from an opioid overdose1, and an estimated 6.1 million experience an opioid use disorder2, affecting individuals, families, and communities across the nation.
Now more than ever, it is critical for us to think creatively, test new approaches, remove silos, and enhance and expand activities proven to prevent and reduce opioid use disorder.
