CDC Statisitics

According to the CDC, “Every day in the United States, 105 people die as a result of drug overdose, and another 6,748 are treated in emergency departments for the misuse or abuse of drugs.”  Most of these misuse/abuse events are from painkillers.

The CDC’s Vitalsigns report notes, “More than 5 times as many women died from prescription painkiller overdoses in 2010 as in 1999.”

This will give you an idea of the kinds of devastating experiences occurring in your community. Remember nationwide, three people die from pain drugs every hour.
