Drug overdoses are now the leading cause of death for Americans under 50 and kill more people than Breast Cancer.

It’s hard to ignore the impact that opioids and other addictive substances have had throughout the U.S. in the last few years. Substance use disorder and mental illness affect all levels of society. As pressures of everyday living have increased, so have the number of people with substance use disorders, mental health problems and the related cost of treatment.
