The opioid epidemic affects every walk of life. Rich, poor, black, white, young, or old – the opioid crisis is unprejudiced in its reach and devastation.
At least ten Pennsylvanians die every day from a drug overdose, with over 3,500 overdose deaths in Pennsylvania in 2015 alone.
The time for action is now.
In order to stem the tide of opioid abuse and make progress for those suffering from the disease of addiction and their loved ones, we must work quickly and efficiently to pass bills to send to Governor Wolf’s desk.
