Every day, more than 115 people die as a result of using opioids (including prescription pain relievers, heroin, synthetic opioids) and that number is on the rise. It’s a crisis on the home-front and on the work-front, and has cost the United States ~$78.5 billion, between healthcare, lost productivity, addiction treatment and the involvement of the criminal justice system.*

How exactly did we get here? And what is being done to stop it? Chad Brummett, the Director of Pain Research and Director of Clinical Anesthesia Research at the University of Michigan, will walk us through it all and will even leave us with some tangible ways that we can help.
