Addressing the Opioid Crisis

What we are doing at The ROC - and how you can help!

In 2020, 91,799 drug overdose deaths occurred in the United States. 

That is an average of 251 overdose deaths per day. 

Approximately 68,849  - or - 75% of those overdoses involved an opioid.  The age-adjusted rate of overdose deaths increased by 31% from 2019 (21.6 per 100,000) to 2020 (28.3 per 100,000).

 

*Prescription opioids were involved in nearly 24% of all opioid overdose deaths in 2020,
