0

IOWA ATTORNEY GENERAL TOM MILLER HAS UNVEILED A WEBSITE DEDICATED TO PROVIDING IOWANS WITH A PATH TO RECOVERY FROM OPIOID USE.


MILLEROP1 OC…OTHER RESOURCES. :07

MILLER SAYS OPIOID DEPENDENCE IS TREATABLE AND IOWANS WITH OPIOID USE DISORDER CAN SUCCESSFULLY TAKE BACK CONTROL OF THEIR LIVES:

MILLEROP2 OC……… TREATED AS A DISEASE. ;18

LAST YEAR, 258 IOWANS DIED FROM OPIOID OVERDOSES, A 21.2% INCREASE FROM 2020.

FIRST RESPONDERS ARE USING MORE AND MORE DOSES OF NALOXONE TO COUNTER OVERDOSES, PREVENTING THE DEATH TOLL FROM WORSENING.

OVER 18 YEARS, IOWA EXPECTS TO RECEIVE NEARLY $178 MILLION FROM SETTLEMENTS WITH OPIOID MANUFACTURER JOHNSON & JOHNSON AND THE NATION’S THREE MAJOR PHARMACEUTICAL DISTRIBUTORS: CARDINAL, MCKESSON AND AMERISOURCEBERGEN.

THIS AMOUNT WILL BE DISTRIBUTED EQUALLY BETWEEN THE STATE, COUNTIES AND CITIES.

LAST YEAR, MILLER’S OFFICE SIGNED AN AGREEMENT WITH UNIVERSITY OF IOWA HEALTH CARE TO DEVELOP A STATEWIDE OPIOID TREATMENT PROGRAM USING $3.8 MILLION IN SETTLEMENT FUNDS.

THE LAUNCH OF IOWAOPIOIDHELP.COM IS A STEP TOWARDS ENDING THE EPIDEMIC.
