Opioid Facts

174 Americans die every day from an opioid overdose.

Since 1999, the amount of prescription opioids sold in the U.S. has nearly quadrupled, despite no overall change in the amount of pain reported by Americans. Deaths from these drugs – such as oxycodone, hydrocodone and methadone – have quadrupled since 1999.
