The opioid epidemic is the most destructive public health crisis in the United States today.
A well-intentioned medical industry began prescribing opioids in the 1990’s to alleviate pain experienced by their patients suffering from injuries, surgery and chronic pain. Unfortunately, opioids have a high risk for abuse and anybody can easily become addicted. The opioid overdose epidemic is one of the greatest public health concerns in the United States today. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports more than 72,000 Americans died from some form of drug overdose in 2017 alone. That’s nearly 200 people per day, an increase in nearly 10% from the year before. Much of this increase is a direct result from prescription and synthetic opioids.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA):
Over 2.5 million Americans suffer from opioid dependence
Use of opioids including heroin and prescription pain relivers can lead to neonatal abstinence syndrome
Opioid abuse contributes to the spread of infectious diseases like HIV and Hepatitis.
Pain management has now become a deadly enterprise in the United States. Even with the high risks associated with opioid prescription, many doctors have been resistant to changing how to care for and prescribe pain treatment for their patients. No medical doctor would want to see a person suffer from chronic pain, so opioids have been widely used to alleviate discomfort associated with long-term and short-term acute pain.
Opioid receptors in the brain are so powerful, they can lead to rapid addiction in every type of person. Prescription pain relievers like oxycodone, hydrocodone and fentanyl carry such a high risk of addiction that many who are initially prescribed the drug, often turn to street drugs like heroin or random pills once their prescription runs out. Opioid withdrawal symptoms can be very difficult to deal with on your own, so it is best to have experience and a medical staff to help you through it. Sadly, many do not even realize they have an opioid abuse disorder until their prescriptions run out and they begin experiencing the severe withdrawal symptoms.
