Our country is facing the deadliest addiction crisis in its history. Opioid overuse kills nearly 100 people in the U.S. every day—and Tennessee is ranked third in the country for prescription drug abuse. Overdoses are now the leading cause of death among Americans under age 50—beating car crashes, gun accidents and HIV/AIDS. According to STAT, opioids could end nearly half a million U.S. lives over the next decade.
