Finally, a New Approach to Opioid Addiction Treatment
Real-time measurable data creates ability to treat the 2.1 million people diagnosed with opioid addiction each year, responsible for 104,000 overdose deaths over the past twelve months.
Statistics show that 1 out of 10 people abuse opioids, costing the U.S. $78.5 billion a year. Multiple government agencies have released guidance policies to fight this rising epidemic, including The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) who declared a public health emergency in 2017 with a 5-Point Strategy To Combat the Opioid Crisis, and The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) who issued there opioid prescribing guideline. Despite these and other strong efforts, leading healthcare agencies such as the American Medical Association (AMA) continues to emphasize that our nation’s drug-related overdose and death epidemic continues to worsen.
