How opioids impact our citizens
Opioid misuse can lead to addiction, a brain disorder that must be managed over one’s lifetime. It cannot be “cured” with 30 days of rehab treatment.
The Opioid Crisis has helped fuel a pandemic that has impacted many of our young people, families, neighbors, friends and coworkers.
Overdose deaths kill over 100,000 Americans annually and the rates of overdose have skyrocketed from fentanyl entering into our community.
Fentanyl is hard to detect, is laced into other drugs like pot, and very deadly. 75% of the overdose deaths today are from fentanyl.
1 in 10 adolescents that misuse substances before they leave high school will rewire their brains before they have time to fully develop increasing the chances they will become addicted.
Addiction has a $1 trillion dollar economic impact annually in healthcare, law enforcement, lost productivity at work, and legal cost.
