Every day, 91 Americans die from opioid overdose. In Iowa, opioids are impacting women age 45-64 at an ever increasing rate. Why? In part, because they don't even know it. Women in this age group are more likely to have physical conditions for which opioids are prescribed, yet they don’t know about the severe risks of opioid misuse.
