According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the number of opioid overdoses in the United States has risen by 40 percent since January.
And according to the American Public Health Association, more than 3.5 million Americans have taken opioids in the last three months.
The number of overdose deaths has increased by almost 10 percent, and the number seeking treatment has more than doubled.
So far this year, the number and number of deaths related to opioids has reached nearly 2.5 billion, with 2.3 million of those deaths attributed to prescription painkillers.
In a recent interview with The Huffington Post, Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) said he plans to reintroduce the Pain Relief Act, which would give people who are already addicted the ability to buy opioid medication, with the goal of reducing deaths.
The Pain Relief is a package of reforms that Johnson said will allow people who have been addicted to get help with paying for prescriptions.
“I believe that this package is a step in the right direction, because we need to end the epidemic of opioid addiction in America, Johnson said.
Johnson’s bill would also expand the ability of people to receive emergency overdose treatment, which is when people are taken off opioids for a short time.”
I believe that’s a real solution to the problem.””
People who are on opioids should have access to emergency treatment.
I believe that’s a real solution to the problem.”
Johnson said that the Pain relief would also help those who have recently tried to quit. “
Now, if they overdose, they can get their prescription and have access in a matter of days.”
Johnson said that the Pain relief would also help those who have recently tried to quit.
“If you’ve been trying to quit, it is important that you have access now, so that when you get home, you can access opioid medications,” Johnson explained.
President Trump said in September that opioid addiction is the No. 1 public health crisis facing the country.
He told a gathering of opioid advocacy groups that the country should be “careful about how we respond to this problem.”
“I don’t want to be a president who doesn’t care about people’s lives and how they’re treated,” Trump said at the time.
“We should care about their lives and not care about the fact that they are addicted.”
But a new study released last week found that opioid painkillers were far more popular among people who live in states that were struggling with opioid overdose deaths, and it found that the number was increasing even more rapidly in states like Texas and Mississippi.
According to the CDC, in 2015, the nation was at a total of 4.6 million opioid overdose fatalities, and more than 2.8 million people were receiving treatment.
By the end of last year, that number had risen to 4.7 million, and that figure has continued to increase.
The researchers analyzed the number that had been taken by people who died of an opioid overdose in each state from Jan. 1, 2016, through May of this year.
And they found that there were nearly 2 million opioid overdoses each day in the states.
In Texas, where the opioid epidemic has been the most severe, nearly two-thirds of the people who took opioids had been taking them for less than a year, according to data from the Texas Department of State Health Services.
And in Mississippi, which has experienced the highest rates of overdose in the country, nearly half of the opioid overdose victims who died were taking opioids for less or no time, the researchers found.
