More babies born addicted to opioids in Cherokee Nation
The number of prescription opioids sold on Cherokee National tribal lands
is even higher than previously thought, and the resulting addictions
are tearing apart families and threatening the existence of the tribe.
Almost 90 million opioid pills were dispensed in the 14 Oklahoma
counties that make up the Cherokee Nation’s land last year, which means
about 96 pills were sold for each adult.
