    It is certainly startling that the number of deaths related to opiate addictions is on the rise. Educating the next generation is a key component and certainly is preferred to needing to treat those who would eventually be in recovery from heroin addiction.

    What is needed is a conscience for those doing the prescribing. I’ve been prescribed oxyc/hyd/zanax for minor conditions and problems: high dosage and three refills. I’ve said no and they’ve begged me practically to take it just in case. Just in case what happens? Unless my leg is amputated or I’ve had major surgery what need is there for 600mg of oxy/hydro four times a day. We all know the answer (kickbacks). NO CONSCIENCE as far as the prescribers is concerned. Now it’s all over the street and the economy is in shambles. No coincidence. Now what? Millions made on 30-day revolving treatment programs. And the addicted will return to the same site where the addiction began because they’re going where after treatment? hahahahah transparent.
