Over the last 20+ years, the number of Americans that have died from drug overdoses has increased more than five-fold. In 2021, over 107,000 Americans died of drug overdoses – and that number only reflects those deaths the government was able to track. Likewise, that number does not include those who died from health issues related to drug use (e.g., Hep C or HIV) or those addicted to drugs who died via suicide. This is a national health crisis that we simply are not talking about enough.
