2019 Year in Review: Center on Addiction
We merged to empower families to support loved ones, advance effective addiction care, and shape public policies that prevent and treat addiction as a public health issue.
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.
