The nation’s opioid crisis did not result overnight. A “perfect storm” has been brewing and sweeping our nation for decades and Pennsylvania is being hit hard. Currently, the state possesses the fourth-highest rate of drug overdose. On average, 13 Pennsylvanians die each day and more than half of the drug overdoses occur due to opioid misuse. Stakeholders are working diligently to combat this crisis, but resources are limited, data and systems remain fragmented, and policies are outdated.
