    Excellent, excellent info.
    The latest government involvement with Drs opioid prescri ps has many chronic pain patients blaming the addicts for this. What they don’t realize is that a lot of these addicts were prescribed opioid s by their dr. They did not plan on becoming addicts. Opioid s are powerful and addictive both physically and mentally. Sure wish they could see this article.

      Thank you Arlene! You make a good point about the over-prescription of opioids, which is particularly dangerous for those already struggling with underlying core issues such as depression, anxiety, and unresolved trauma.

    No one is immune to possible drug addiction when taking opioids.
