Missouri’s Opioid Crisis
The Time to Act is Now
Opioid overdose deaths have steadily increased in Missouri. The devastating impact of opioid misuse and overdose places a tremendous burden on our families, communities, and healthcare systems. Missouri is committed to supporting those impacted by the opioid crisis through education, resources, and linkage to treatment.
It is our challenge. Together we will confront it.
One out of every 56 deaths in Missouri in 2018 was due to opioid overdose. One in three people have been impacted by the opioid crisis. If you or a loved one has been impacted, help is available.
