Let’s stop the Opioid Epidemic
We are an online educational resource about Opioid abuse. The opioid epidemic in the United States has been picking up speed for more than a decade now. More people than ever are dying from opiate overdoses and becoming addicted to these drugs.
It can be easy to think that illegal drugs like heroin and fentanyl are responsible for this. That is not always the case. Prescription opioid drugs have had easy access to people everywhere. That is because many people have pain and desire relief.
We want to crush the idea that the only drugs you need to worry about are illegal ones. That’s because you can have dangerous drugs in your medicine cabinet and not even know it. If you don’t take your opiate medication as the doctor prescribes then that is considered abuse.
Many people don’t realize that they are putting their life at risk if they take more than one dose at a time. They don’t realize giving the medicine to a friend to help them out could ruin their life. It is definitely illegal.
We want to inform the public about the dangers of opioid use. It isn’t as cut and dry as drug addicts on the street. It is too easy not to understand what you are taking. Talk to your doctor about the risks of any medicines they want you to take.
We must make sure people can easily understand the risks. That’s why we talk about opioid addiction openly and answer any questions people may have on the subject.
We talk about the dangers of addiction, how to stop, and what not to take them will. It’s important to know how you could possibly become addicted so that you can avoid it.
