Partnership for Drug-Free Kids Responds to 2017 NIH’s Monitoring the Future Study
Partnership for Drug-Free Kids Responds to 2017 National Institute of Health’s Monitoring the Future Study
Heroin and other opioids are ravaging communities across America. Deaths from heroin increased 328% between 2010 and 2015, and drug deaths from fentanyl and other synthetic opioids are now seeing a sharp rise as well. More Americans die from drug overdoses than in car crashes, and this increasing trend is driven by Rx painkillers.
What we see at the Partnership are not just the 144 individuals who lose their lives every day to overdose, but the families that surround them – families who have lost their hearts to a loved one’s disease.
