    Pretty sure that 81 deaths per million is a really low figure for Lexington park.

    That rate is just under half what it is in the US. We call it a national crisis.

    When it comes to mortality, that's actually a high number as it doesn't knock out folks after their productive life is over. It hits the 18-45 crowd and as such has a huge cumulative economic impact. As a disease that costs us economic growth, it's starting to eclipse cancer.

    Most have a false picture of who the folks are that get knocked off by opiate addiction. Plenty of them are working adults, or were working until less than a year prior.
