Today in America we are in the grips of the largest drug epidemic in American history: the opioid epidemic. Drug overdoses, mostly to opioid drugs, are the leading cause of accidental death in the United States. In recent years, Americans witnessed a decrease in natural life expectancy for the first time since the early 1960s. The primary cause this decrease was overdoses on opioids. Since the onset of Covid-19, America’s opioid epidemic has grown worse. Deaths from opioid overdoses rose 30% over the last year. Opioid addiction is a chronic and progressive disease that is life-threatening if left inadequately treated. Though not curable, opioid addiction is treatable and manageable if the resources are available to the patient and the patient can be kept alive long enough to enter treatment.
