Opioid addiction is a crisis facing America and the world at large. The numbers of addiction cases are increasing daily and it’s already turned into a complete epidemic. More than 130 people die every single day due to opioid addictions, according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) from 1999-2017, almost 400,000 people died from an overdose involving an opioid, including prescription and illicit opioids. Just two years ago (2017) over 70,000 people died from drug overdoses; hereto opioids were involved; while another 1.7 million were diagnosed with substance abuse addictions or disorders.
So why is this addiction on the rise? Most people are prescribed these highly addictive painkillers, and after continued use, many have become addicted. Families are being destroyed and, in most cases, the perpetrator never intended to cause harm to the victims; they were merely following doctor’s orders to take the pills. In addition to prescription opioids, there are other opioids killing and destroying families and relationships.
H. Brown, CEO of Herbal Rx Remedies experienced first-hand how opioids can destroy lives after witnessing one of his own family members tumble through the addiction cycles after a standard surgical procedure. It’s been over 10 years, and his family member still has not completely bounced back.
