Tackling the opioid epidemic in Colorado

Colorado's opioid epidemic has recently taken focus at the state capitol, as officials express the need to limit the drug abuse that is killing hundreds each year. More than 63,000 people have died from drug overdoses in the U.S. in 2017. Opioids were involved in 75 percent of those deaths. This statistic hits close to home in Colorado as the number of opioid overdoses continues to rise.
