Missouri’s Opioid Crisis
The Time to Act is Now
Overdose deaths have steadily increased in Missouri. The devastating impact of substance misuse and overdose places a tremendous burden on our families, communities, and healthcare systems. Missouri is committed to supporting those impacted by substance misuse through education, resources, and linkage to treatment.
It is Time 2 Act and be the change; we will confront substance misuse together by standing united.
One in 47 deaths in Missouri in 2021 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.
