The opioid crisis as we know it began in 1991, when pharmaceutical companies and medical societies claimed that the risk of addiction to prescription opioids was very low. Prescription rates of these drugs shot up and opioids were readily available and prescribed frequently, which invevitably lead to opioid abuse by individuals who had prescriptions and those who didn't. When efforts to reduce opioid prescriptions rolled out in 2010, users turned to heroin, and an even deadlier drug -- fentanyl. In 2017, the overdose death toll became over 47,000. As attendants of the 2020 Rx Drug Abuse & Heroin Summit, how will you work with medical professionals, rehabilitated citizens, pharmaceutical representatives, and many others to mitigate the American Opioid Epidemic?
