Abstract

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 2015 marked the record for drug overdoses in the United States as more than 33,000 individuals died from an overdose of heroin or synthetic opioids, with nearly half of these deaths attributed to prescription opioids. CDC estimates indicate that 60% of all drug overdose deaths involve opioids. Since 1999, opioid overdose has nearly quadrupled with more than half a million deaths documented between 2000 and 2015. Current estimates suggest that 91 citizens perish daily from opioid overdose (CDC, 2016).
