Prioritizing prevention is crucial to changing this trajectory of an unsustainable future if the state of addiction in the United States continues to rise. In 2022, the nation witnessed a staggering 109,680 deaths due to drug overdoses. Even more shockingly, in 2020, 40 million individuals in the U.S. needed substance abuse help, but only 4 million of them actually took the step to seek and receive treatment. For students and teens, these numbers hold significance.
If we don’t act now, the situation will worsen. In a decade, the state of addiction in the US is projected to become unsustainable. Prioritizing prevention is crucial to changing this trajectory.
