A Relapse Event

Addiction does more than destroy individual lives—it destroys communities, friendships, and families as well. In the United States, addiction—in particular, opiate addiction—is growing at an alarming rate and with devastating effects. The most dangerous element of addiction, and the biggest obstacle in preventing addicts from getting clean, is a relapse event.

While the public health system recognizes that opiate addiction and relapse are ubiquitous problems and that primary treatment and prevention are critical, it remains a fact that relapse is endemic among those who successfully complete treatment; it is also recurrent with successive rounds of treatment.

Overdose Data

Addiction and relapse do not discriminate against socioeconomic status, gender, race, or age. This is a global problem that unites humanity and needs multidisciplinary collaboration, innovation, and passionate investment to win.

Overdose Deaths

Opioid addiction is “driving this epidemic with 18,893 overdose deaths related to prescription pain relievers, and 10,574 overdose deaths related to heroin.”

Unintentional Deaths

In fact, in the United States, the number of unintentional overdose deaths from prescribed opioids has quadrupled since 1999 as reported by the National Institute of Health.

Leading Cause

According to the American Society of Addiction Medicine, drug overdose in 2014 was the “leading cause of accidental deaths in the US, with 47,055 lethal drug overdoses”.
