About

Overview

America is facing an opioid epidemic; every day 130 people die from an opioid overdose. Over the last twenty years, use of prescription painkillers and illicit drugs like heroin and fentanyl has skyrocketed, leaving millions of people addicted to these substances and at risk of a fatal overdose. This book presents a realistic picture of addiction, the effects of addiction on people’s lives, and how addiction can be overcome.
