Nonprofit dentists help in recovery from opioid addiction
from Nonprofit Quarterly
A new set of interactive graphics developed by the Visual Capitalist shows that drug overdoses are now the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 50, above even car accidents and firearms. They dramatize that the United States is home to the highest percentage of drug-related deaths in the world. Unless this trend is reversed, the opioid epidemic is projected to claim nearly 500,000 American lives over the next decade. However, deaths are just the tip of the iceberg. In 2017, there were more than 11 million “opioid misusers” in the United States — equal to the entire population of Ohio.
