One of the biggest public health crises facing America is substance-use disorders. Resulting in nearly 20,000 deaths a year - more deadly than gun violence - opioid use is one of the most troublesome. 

The consequences are profound, impacting individuals and families no matter where they live, how much they earn, or how old they are. And the impact is broad, affecting social services, the health care system, communities, and the economy.
