Opioid use, addiction, and overdose is currently a vital issue facing the United States as a whole. There were an estimated 33,000 opioid related deaths in 2015. Our goal is to help families and community members to learn more about this crisis, to better understand the causes, signs, consequences of opioid use and abuse, as well as treatment resources for individuals coping with addiction and their loved ones.
