Opioid Abuse

Pharmaceutical companies did somethings to remove doubt and fears in the medical community that patients would not become addicted to opioids. With that narrative being pushed Healthcare Providers began to prescribe them at greater rates. As you’re aware once money gets involved they care less about the people and its affects on them. With increased prescriptions came widespread misuse along with people abusing non-prescription opioids. It was at this point it became clear that the drug was highly addictive.


In brief physical pain, relax, concentrate and sleep are the most common reason to misuse prescription drugs. Now I don’t think the problem is that they’re looking for relief more so than what they’re find and ultimate end up using to reach it. A lot of this is influence and the other stems from being uneducated. If you’re around it or hear about it often it’ll become apart of your dialogue and more present in your day to day even though it’s not physically. Ignorance is bliss and can hurt you. If you don’t take the time to look into the things you’re putting into your body you’re not going to know how you may react or if things are even going well or not.

If you are in need of relief or need a pick me up or aren’t feeling the greatest you should look to a pill or drug to fix or mask that from the jump. There are plenty of techniques you can look into and avoid medication all together if you are open minded and can catch yourself early. So take this opportunity to learn your mind, body and soul so you can take care of it accordingly. And if you do have to resort to medication at least you’ll know you tried and hopefully you’ll have a better understanding of what your’re putting into your body and what it’s doing.


So go ahead and share this with anyone you know struggling with addiction and/or any of the above mention misuses giving them the power of educated decisions and you the peace of mind knowing you’ve done your part.
