The Power of Acceptance: Embracing Change for a Brighter Future
What can I do if I’m struggling with an addiction to prescription drugs? Millions of Americans are fighting against the insidious disease of addiction to prescription drugs. If you’ve got a problem, you’re not alone. And prescription drug abuse is quickly becoming one of the worst public health crises in the United Sates and Canada. Addiction rates are absolutely exploding right now, with more and more people falling into addiction, even as law enforcement scrambles to control the trade in abused prescription drugs. One troubling fact is that prescription pill abuse now accounts for more than half of all drug overdose fatalities. Now, a new report has ranked the ways that all the United States have responded to prescription drug abuse—with troubling results.
One of the troubling finds that was published in the report was that not only are fatal drug overdoses climbing at an alarming rate, they actually literally doubled in 29 states (between 1999 and now). In other states, overdose fatalities even tripled—and in a few, they quadrupled. More people died from prescription pill overdoses than from car crashes.
One bright spot that the report wrote on was the amount of states that have enacted a good samaritan law. These laws provide immunity for people who phone the cops or an ambulance when someone is in danger of overdosing. By passing these laws in 17 states and DC, the message is being sent that saving lives and getting people to treatment matters more than a criminal conviction. People saving lives, even drug users, are protected. And that means more people live to reach the real remedy for drug addiction: drug rehab and drug treatment.
