Accidental Addiction

woman in despair

Think about a small-town. Let’s say the population is a little over 20,000. Now imagine that over the course of a year, every single one of those people die… Now imagine that exact same thing is going to happen to another small town every year from now on.

Every day in America, accidental addiction is killing people. They are our neighbors, friends and family. The population of a small town, simply wiped off the face of the earth. Addiction destroys all and doesn’t care about the color of your skin, size of your home, rich or poor, professional or blue collar, doctor or dropout.

Accidental addiction happens when people are prescribed opiates for genuine reasons. An injury suffered at work or chronic pain associated with severe arthritis. Lots of people on opiate therapy for chronic pain don’t have problems with addiction, but many do and don’t seek help. The long-term use of opioids can lead to accidental addiction which can lead to deadly consequences. Over 20,000 people a year die in the U.S. from overdose of prescription pain relievers. Our communities are being ravaged by this problem and it needs to be addressed in a healing manner. Everyone that needs help should get it and we need action on this growing public health crisis for the benefit of the addiction and chronic pain communities. If this problem has affected you, it is time to choose a better life.
