About ANewU Recovery
and our fight for change
Opioid overdose is now outpacing car crashes as the #1 cause of accidental death in America. Nearly 80% of people with an opioid addiction – over 1.9 million people – do not receive treatment, leading to a 400% increase in opioid-related deaths since 2000. Individuals who are unable to access appropriate treatment for opioid use disorders are at substantial risk for substance use disorder, criminal activity, infectious disease including HIV and hepatitis, overdose and premature death.
The opioid epidemic is a public health crisis that is devastating our communities. Every day, more than 115 Americans die after overdosing on opioids. About 2.5 million young adults aged 18-25 have misused opioids in the past year according to the 2016 National Survey on Drug Use and Health
The goal of AnewU Recovery is to advance science-based, evidence-based treatment and support systems that can reduce death and suffering from opioid addiction and produce more long-term opioid addiction survivors who are positively engaged in their families and communities
