The United States is currently fighting a war against opioid addiction. In 2014, more people died of a drug overdose than ever before. Sixty percent of those deaths involved opioids. From 1999 to 2014, the number of deaths due to opioid overdose increased by 400%, and on an average day in the U.S., 3,900 people begin to abuse prescription opioids and 580 people start using heroin.
