Addiction Prevention, Treatment, and Recovery: A Call to Action

In 2017, there were 1,953 overdose deaths­­­ involving opioids in North Carolina—a rate of 19.8 deaths per 100,000 persons compared to the average national rate of 14.6 deaths per 100,000 persons (NIH, 2019). While needed attention has been given to opioid deaths in rural areas, little attention has been given to the increasing number of opioid-related deaths among minorities and those in urban areas. This statewide event will be a call to action to collaborate and address trends in opioid use disorders.
