The numbers are staggering. The opioid epidemic is costing our nation more than $500 billion annually in health and social costs. What’s more, 1 in 5 deaths among young adults in 2016 were opioid related. This crisis is plaguing communities across the country, leaving in its wake countless victims, devastated families and economic ruin.
