In 2017, more than 70,000 people in the United States died from a drug overdose, with almost 50,000 of these deaths involving an opioid. Over the past two years, the federal government has invested billions of dollars into prevention, treatment, and recovery efforts.
Please join us March 26 at the Bipartisan Policy Center as we release a groundbreaking new report that tracks these investments. Panelists will discuss ways in which federal support is assisting states and localities in addressing the opioid epidemic.
The event will be webcast.
