10/01/2013 12:00 PM - 10/01/2013 2:00 PM

According to the CDC, a dramatic increase in opioid prescriptions has led to “skyrocketing” rates of overdose deaths and addiction. Drug overdoses are now killing more Americans than car crashes. Immediate action from our federal agencies is needed to
prevent new cases of opioid addiction, to prevent more overdose deaths and to ensure access to effective treatment for millions who have become addicted. Video promo on FED Up! Rally:
