The hidden victims of the opioid crisis

Thousands of children in Washington have had their lives turned upside down by opioid abuse.

As Attorney General, my office advocates for children who have been abandoned, abused, neglected, or have no guardian able to care for them.

It's some of the most important work that we do.

Here's a shocking statistic: Of the thousands of cases my office handles involving abuse and neglect of children, nearly half are impacted by opioid abuse.

The opioid epidemic is devastating Washington families. That's why I'm taking on opioid manufacturers and why I'm working to limit opioid prescriptions for Washington's youth.

I'll continue updating you on the fight to remedy the opioid crisis. Future generations of Washingtonians are at stake.
