The declared opioids epidemic, called analgesics, is a multimillion dollar industry. An open secret of a hidden truth. The abuse of the abuse of these drugs produces addition.
The Pharmaceutical Drug Industry, demand after demand and the number of people who have died from opioid over doses, are scandalous. At the end the person just wanted, it is help, to relieve his pain and he has been betrayed, to leave him hooked in a trap that few can dodge on their own.
In 2007, 2.5 million Americans abused prescription drugs for the first time, compared to 2.1 million who used marijuana for the first time.
Among teens, prescription drugs are the most commonly used drugs next to marijuana, and almost half of the teens abusing prescription drugs are taking painkillers.
Why are so many young people turning to prescription drugs to get high?
By survey, almost 50% of teens believe that taking prescription drugs is much safer than using illegal street drugs.
What is not known by most of these young people is the risk they are taking by consuming these highly potent and mind-altering drugs. Long-term use of painkillers can lead to dependence, even for people who are prescribed them to relieve a medical condition but eventually fall into the trap of abuse and addiction.
“People mistakenly believe they “feel better” or “act better” or are “only happy” when on drugs. This is just another delusion. Sooner or later the drugs will destroy them physically”. L. Ronald Hubbard.
