The challenge

Inappropriate opioid prescribing has fueled one of the deadliest drug epidemics in U.S. history. Though most opioid-related overdoses involve prescription opioids, an increasing number is linked to illicit opioids such as heroin and fentanyl. In 2022, there were nearly 110,000 drug overdose deaths in the U.S. involving an opioid, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

According to the National Library of Medicine, evidence-based interventions can have a return on investment of more than $58 for every dollar spent.

Studies show that every $1 spent on substance use disorder treatment saves $4 in health care costs and $7 in criminal justice costs.
