Of all the drug overdose deaths in the U.S. in 2013, a majority (almost 52%) were related to prescription drugs. takemedsseriously.com Why is this happening? How do opioids get in the hands of those that become addicted? Why is it increasing so fast? Presenting at the SUPAR Conference on behalf of the Colorado Consortium for Perscription Drug Abuse Prevention, Robert Valuck, PhD, RPh spoke to the many reasons Colorado and the nation struggle with the opioid crisis. Calling it the "Perfect Storm" Dr. Valuck describes how opioids get into the hands of people from all walks of life. He further describes the addictive stages and the proscribed amounts that get circulated into the American household. Where does it end? The Colorado Consortium is using an integrative approach working with policymakers, educators, clinicians, treatment centers, recovering addicts and the community to reduce the death rate and increase awareness. Is their reason for hope? Focusing on safe use, safe storage and safe disposal lives are being saved and effective treatment for addiction is being achieved. For the first time in a decade, the numbers of deaths by opioids are decreasing rather than rising.

He found that by the support of a tribe and community, he could use his time to fill meaningful projects. Join us for more of Michael's amazing story/
