- NCDAS: National Center for Drug Abuse Statistics
Over the past two decades, the US has experienced a growing crisis of substance abuse and addiction. Since 2000, the annual number of drug overdose deaths has nearly quadrupled from 17,500 to 67,400 in 2018. And tragically, that number has soared even higher, topping 100,000 in 2021. Help reverse that trend for good by investing in solutions that save lives, create community, and support long-term recovery.
