Like a runaway freight train, the opioid addiction epidemic in America continues to gain speed. It's destroying lives, decimating families and communities, and overwhelming emergency response centers, hospital rooms and morgues. The death toll continues to rise daily. Sadly, many unknowingly contribute to this destruction. From business accidents to medical personnel fueling the fire with legal prescription painkillers, it’s time to close off the pipeline to addiction, beginning in the workplace.
