Countering The Opioid Crisis

Every year, we lose more people to opioid addiction deaths than were killed in the entire Vietnam War. Between 1991 and 2011, painkiller prescriptions in the U.S. tripled from 76 million to 219 million per year, and as of 2016 more than 289 million prescriptions were written for opioid drugs annually.
