In 2012, physicians wrote 259 million prescriptions for opioid drugs.

With the presidential election underway, the press conference is expected to capture the attention of Presidential candidates from both political parties. “We want to bring awareness to the national stage,” continued Meshkin. “We are confident that both sides are interested in addressing an epidemic that is effecting the lives millions Americans.” The media event is expected to generate added interest in finding meaningful solutions to combat prescription drug abuse.
