Understanding the Opioid Epidemic in American Society is imperative

What we do know is this: Substance use disorder creates a stronghold that prevents individuals from living productive and healthy lives.

So, what is the presenting problem in America today when it comes to the question of who is poor? It is my opinion that based on the review of the literature collected, that the answer are those who are lacking the ability to obtain the "necessities" of life in present post-modern American society: Namely, adequate, affordable housing, stable and gainful employment, appropriate and affordable health care and insurance, and the ability to save for retirement.
