An estimated 2.1 million Americans are suffering from opioid use disorder, and fewer than 20% of those individuals are seeking treatment. During 2017 alone, there were over 70,000 deaths stemming from drug use across the country, of which 68% (47,600 deaths), were tied to opioid abuse. Ohio registered the second highest rate of overdose death in the country, with 46 deaths per 100,000 people – but treatment programs have not been widely accessible.
