UNDERSTANDING THE OPIOID EPIDEMIC

"Where is the Outrage?"

There are small signs of progress in combatting the opioid epidemic. The Centers for Disease Control reports opioid prescribing peaked in 2010 and decreased each year through 2015. Experts say the drop is a sign the culture of over-prescribing is changing. But fewer prescriptions have not resulted in a drop in opioid addiction and death. There are no easy solutions to the opioid epidemic.
