Re: Who is really to blame for the "epidemic?"


I have repeated many times, no jail, no prison for addicts, I call that 3rd world. If an MD, at least the many I have worked under knows their patient is addicted, they got a couple choices, go to detox then to the rehab facility or they will get them into the methadone or suboxin programs. Doctors know what withdrawing from heroin is like and that it is dangerous and can cause death. Narcotics are still being prescribed in mass amounts and many of those hooked have gone way past what they needed for pain, now they just need to get high and then their life becomes out of control. Meth addicts is a far worse addiction and worse to with draw from and that stuff makes people crazy as in crazy scary. heroin addicts are not, of course passive and nodding. Sometimes if they need to be "normal" when it's hidden from family, friends, they bring their gear where they do a lower dose but more frequent along with booze to keep them maintaining.

Suppose you had some leftover percosets or vicodins and a friend of yours who was addicted to heroin came to you wanting you to help them with their withdrawal symptoms that were beginning to kick in. Would you give them some of your leftovers or tell them to go to detox or rehab?

That is an interesting question as I've taken people to detox and treatment centers, no one ever asked me for drugs. My guess is probably not, helping someone get through a few hours is not really a friend, it is an enabler.
