Approximately 88,000 individuals die annually in the US from alcohol-related causes. In 2016, more than 64,000 individuals nationwide died of a drug-related overdose, the leading cause of death in people under 50. Opioids were responsible for 67% of these deaths.
In 2016, Maine ranked 11th among states with the highest rates of opioid-related overdose deaths per 100,000 persons. In 2017, 418 individuals in Maine, more than one a day, died of a drug-related overdose: 85% were caused by an opioid, and 59% were caused by Fentanyl, an extremely powerful synthetic opioid manufactured in China.

what can we do?

80% of Americans with an alcohol or opioid use disorder remain untreated.

We must make it is easier for individuals to receive the treatment they need than it is to obtain heroin, Fentanyl, or continue their dependence on alcohol.

When individuals find their way into long-term recovery, we all benefit.

When a young person grows up free of addictive substances, we all benefit.
