IHI Open School Recover Hope Campaign

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​In 2017, more than 72,000 people in the United States died from drug overdoses  that's nearly 200 people every day.1 Around two-thirds of those overdose deaths were connected to misuse of opioids, whether prescription or illicit.2 The opioid crisis has reached epidemic proportions.

This crisis can be counted in numbers  and in stories. Hear our campaign leaders share their experiences in this powerful video. ​

 

As the next generation of leaders in health care, it's up to us to change this outcome. It's time to Recover Hope.
