President… and Macklemore: A conversation about addiction

“Drug overdoses now take more lives every year than traffic accidents. A lot of the time, they’re from legal drugs prescribed by a doctor. So addiction doesn’t always start in some dark alley — it often starts in a medicine cabinet.”

Deaths from opioid overdoses have tripled since 2000. ​ The good news is, there’s hope. When we talk about opioid abuse as the public health problem it is, more people will seek the help they need. More people will find the strength to recover, just like Macklemore and millions of Americans have. We’ll see fewer preventable deaths and fewer broken families.”
