The Opioid Epidemic
The cause of more deaths than guns and automobile accidents combined, the opioid scourge has become one of America's most urgent social challenges. Addiction troubled communities long before the advent of modern medicine. However, the opioid epidemic had its origin in the pharmaceutical industry and in normative medical practices. In 2015, one-third of all Medicare patients (12 million) were given prescriptions for these painkillers by their physicians. It's clear that we all must be involved in prevention and treatment of opioid abuse and in the reduction of overdoses and deaths.
