a growing epidemic

Despite the increased information at our disposal, drug abuse in the US continues to rise at an alarming rate. A 2018 report from the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) revealed that drug overdose deaths rose by 9.6% from the year before, and deaths involving synthetic opioids increased by 45% in the same time period. Overdose deaths have skyrocketed in the country from 1999-2017 with no end in sight for the epidemic, while drugs like fentanyl pose deadly new risks.

Sobering Statistics About Drug Abuse:

  • Approximately 7 million people suffered from addiction issues related to opioids as of 2017, according to drugabuse.gov.
  • According to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention, there were 47,000 opioid overdose deaths in 2017 alone.
  • The CDC report also shows that fentanyl plays a key role in the opioid epidemic that can be traced back to 2013.
  • Heroin users are more likely to have used prescription opioids first.
  • The latest National Survey on Drug Abuse revealed 40.6 million U.S. citizens over the age of 12 admitted to using cocaine at least once in their life.
