The United States Department of Health and Human Services reports that approximately 9.7 million people in America misuse prescription opioids used to treat pain. Two out of three overdose deaths involve opioids, making opiate addiction a national health crisis. Around 80% of people who use illegal opioids started out taking prescription medication. Despite the push within the last decade to limit the use of opioids to treat chronic conditions, one in three people with medicare end up getting this type of medication.
Between 1999 and 2019, a half-million overdose deaths were linked to illegal and prescription opioids. In 2019, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported an increase of up to 6-15% in overdose deaths. Opiate addiction is a dangerous epidemic.
