With much of the country focused on the latest Coronavirus developments, you may be wondering if you should postpone or cancel treatment for alcohol or drug addiction until the crisis subsides. According to the CDC, the risks of alcohol poisoning or a drug overdose far outweigh the risk of contracting Coronavirus. Opioid overdoses account for over 100 deaths in America every day, and alcohol remains the third leading preventable cause of death in the United States.
72,000 people fit in this stadium.
That is the same number of people who lost their lives to addiction in the United States last year.
This is only the number of recorded deaths.
There are many more addiction related deaths that go unrecorded.
