Is Opioid Addiction Really a Crisis?

If your eyes are open and your ears are listening, you know that opioid bullets are flying everywhere.

The opioid epidemic is here and growing. What would happen if every day a plane crashed with 200 passengers on it?All dead. Every day. Would there be an uproar? You bet there would be. YES, America … we have a crisis!

Every individual who succumbs to opioids creates a twisting tornado that impacts seven other people every day. Families and relationships are splintered; work is destroyed; and personal health is threatened. Addiction isn’t about one person.
