CDC says that prescription opioid dependence cost the United States $78.5 billion in 2013.

More than one-third of that amount, $29 billion, was caused by increased health care and substance abuse treatment costs. An average of 91 Americans die every day from an opioid overdose (including prescription opioids and/or heroin), according to the agency.
