For the first time US deaths from opioid use top those of car accidents

1 in 103 chance of dying in a car accident 1 in 96 change of dying from opioids

Last year congress passed a $1bn funding bill targeted at opioids. A nice start but it represents only $295 per death(based on population of 325m). $295 would not buy you a month of treatment in most rehab centers. A real national emergency right on your own back porch.

So where is our great leadership? Locked in a childish squabble about a wall that has no impact on this crisis. No wonder people feel so desolate that they take solace elsewhere. Shame on all you you who were elected to lead.

It would be fine with me if all car accidents only involved drivers and trees. Unlike murder-by-auto, every person who dies from opiods made a conscious decision to abuse opiods.

In August of 2017, I was in a car accident where I hit a tree head on going 70mph. I got in an ambulance where they gave me opioids. I hope to continue to defy the odds!
