Stop Opiate Abuse Campaign

About

The U.S. is in the midst of an epidemic of opioid addiction and overdose. Despite increased public awareness of the crisis, opioid-related overdose deaths continue to rise in the United States. In fact, between 2015 and 2016, the national rate of opioid overdose death rose by 28%.
