About

America is drowning in a flood of opiates.

Too many of our relatives have been brought down low by heroin and prescription drugs.

We know addiction is a disease, but our brothers, sisters, sons and daughters are defenseless against this threat.

And while Big Pharma is making billions off the pain and suffering of thousands of families, it’s up to us to support each other.

If you need help, reach out.

And if your loved one is struggling, there’s still hope – survivors around the country are banding together to change the way this disease is treated.

That’s our mission here at The Opiate Epidemic – to document the plague of prescription drugs and heroin that has ravaged our friends and family, and to show them where to get help.

Thanks for visiting our site and let us know how we can help.
