I've been watching alot of vice today past and present on opiods and substances that are used and abused in today's society and It has made me want to post because of my experiences with substances and the people around me who have used them particularly like my father who has been combating opiod addiction to this day since before I was born. (Morphine. Dose=250mg a day plus as needed 30 mg. )
My primary concern are the old and new opiods especially hurting our local community and country as a whole right now, and people need to understand WHY IT'S HAPPENING.
One thing I am proud of is that finally doctors are realizing that opiod need to be take very seriously. People aren't prescribing as negligently. And they are trying better monitor. However now they have cut off thousands from their prescription and now many of thise people are trying to fill the psych and medical (dopamine) voids.
This has caused he people who were dependant on these to fall to cheaper, and some times easier acceable alternative like heroin or other new opiods much stronger than heroin.
There are many reasons people fall to substances but we are seeing a rise like we haven't seen in decades, some places surpassing records on Overdoses and needed treatment like in "needle park" in phili as @vice #vice has shown. It doesn't discriminate, rich, poor, rural, or in the cities. Educate yourself on how to understand and combat substance abuse like this by going to @vice website or .gov or .edu websites to educate yourself. You never know when you may find someone you know fall to substances or their own perscriotion. Show them love not hate.
If anyone wants to talk or discus the subject privately or not do so. I'm always willing to talk at least.
