The opioid crisis in America has had devastating effects on people across the country. You likely know someone who is struggling with addiction to prescription opioid pain medication or heroin, whether it is a family member, friend, neighbor, coworker, or yourself. In 2012, the National Institute on Drug Abuse estimated that 2.1 million Americans suffer from substance use disorders related to prescription opioids, and 467,000 are addicted to heroin. These numbers are rising. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over 33,000 people died from an opioid overdose in 2015, more than any year on record.
