THE NUMBERS: SUBSTANCE USE DISORDER

Drug overdose is now the leading cause of unintentional injury death in the United States. It will cost our economy and health care system more than $400 billion this year and contribute to over 125,000 deaths. In the U.S., more than 21 million people are affected by substance use disorder (SUD). Recovree recognizes that each one of these numbers represents a person - a mother, father, child, neighbor and friend. We are committed to helping individuals with SUD find lasting recovery and ultimately thrive.
