The opioid epidemic is wreaking havoc across the country and it’s destroying families and derailing lives right here in our community. Last year, 231 people died from opioids in Bucks County alone – a 35 percent increase from 2016. Since 2000, more than 300,000 Americans nationwide have died from opioid overdoses and thousands more struggle daily to stay in recovery and get back on track.
This crisis isn’t going away. It’s only getting worse.
