ICYMI – ‘Congress must act to stop opioid crisis’
From the Journal Standard:
“The national statistics for deaths involving opioids are astonishing.
Drug overdoses in 2017 claimed the lives of a record breaking 72,300 people. National numbers, though, do not tell the whole story. Here locally, there were 796 people who died from an opioid-related overdose in Chicago in 2017 – more than the number of people who died from either shootings or car accidents that year.”
