Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Did you know that:

  1. The US makes up 5 percent of the world’s population, yet consumes approximately 80 percent of the world’s prescription opioid drugs?
  2. Prescription opioid drugs contribute to 40 percent of all US opioid overdose deaths?
  3. Prescription opioid overdose rates are highest among people ages 25 to 54 years?
  4. Suboxone Treatment can be a useful alternative for doctors to assist their patients suffering from opioid addiction?

Pain medication addiction is a devastating disease that cuts across all classes, affecting the rich, the poor and everyone in between. Prescription opioid abuse kills about 14,000 people annually, and affects millions of individuals and their families.

Opioids are not all bad BUT…

Of course, opioids can be used for pain, but their use and consumption needs to be carefully monitored. Patients have to realize that opioids, even though effective, are NOT the best choice for everyone. And doctors, when prescribing pain medication, have to spread awareness about opioid-induced addiction risk.
