Today, a new report from the nonprofit Drug Policy Alliance says that the U,S.
could be in for a major spike in opioid-related deaths in the coming months, and that it could happen by next summer.
The group says that by then, the drug will be fully out of the hands of Americans.
The organization’s report, published in the journal Drug and Alcohol Dependence, lays out a timeline of when the opioid crisis will begin to take hold, including the rise in overdoses, the increased demand for prescription opioids, and the introduction of other dangerous medications like fentanyl.
And, according to the report, by the end of 2021, the number of deaths will surpass the number caused by car accidents and other violent crimes.
The report says that in the first half of 2021 alone, there will be an estimated 963,000 opioid-involved deaths in America, and more than 1.8 million overdose deaths, both of which are up more than 50 percent from last year.
And that number is expected to grow significantly by 2021, as more people are taking more dangerous medications, and people begin to overdose on opioids.
The number of people who are taking opioids has grown from about 1.3 million in 2010 to more than 2.4 million today.
The opioid crisis has already affected Americans, and we’re just beginning to see its impact in the rest of the world.
But for now, it’s only the beginning.
“As we begin to see a greater focus on the need to limit access to prescription opioids and other dangerous drugs like fentanyl, we can expect more and more of these opioid deaths to be attributed to those who do not have access to appropriate treatment,” the Drug Policy Group wrote in its report.
The drug is a powerful opioid and is one of the most addictive drugs in the world, which means it can cause an addiction, as well as severe withdrawal symptoms that can lead to death.
It has also been linked to seizures, cardiac arrest, and liver damage, making it the second-most common drug used to treat addiction, behind heroin.
The Drug Policy Action Alliance, an advocacy group based in New York, was founded by former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg.
It was formed in 2010, and has since expanded its mission to include advocacy on behalf of consumers, as it attempts to fight the drug’s continued rise in popularity.
In its latest report, the group estimates that there will only be about 2.6 million opioid-use-related hospitalizations in the United States by 2021.
That number is likely to grow, because the government is still trying to identify the full extent of the crisis.
But there are some measures that can help make sure that these numbers don’t increase.
“We believe that there are a number of things that the government can do, including reducing the price of opioid medications, reducing opioid prescribing, expanding treatment options, and establishing better screening protocols, to reduce overdose deaths,” the group’s report states.
