More than 40,000 Americans died from opioid overdoses in 2016. That’s an average of 115 deaths per day, and more than a 25 percent increase from the year before. Since 2002, opioid deaths in the U.S. have more than doubled. Why is there an opioid crisis in America and how do we fight it? Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi will join us from Tampa and in the studio we’ll have a gentleman who struggled with opioid addiction. We’ll also view excerpts from VOA’s new documentary series about the crisis: “The Damage Done.”
