Specifically, what can this blog do to help readers and their needs?
I know families, friends, brothers and sisters, husbands and wives who are facing the devastating effects of opioids. With the ability to change the mental and physical chemicals in the human brain. Opioids have the ability to run or take control of individuals and their families in ways which were once thought was not possible. Your “standard” addict is obviously not your IV heroin abuser, but includes every and all persons of varied occupations, incomes, groups.
Pain pills are highly accessible for one thing and as we see their price increasing, the price of heroin a much faster acting and dirtier drug is often combined with other drugs. Unfortunately, these and other drugs of abuse are landing many of our loved ones in Emergency Rooms with Overdoses and often death. If those reading this blog think that individual who have drug dependence want to continue living their lives that way, I have news for you, they don’t, many of them are embarrassed and it is one of the toughest illnesses to battle.
The fight is just beginning and we need to continue to fight. If you know someone that needs help, then help them. .
