Nearly 75 people reportedly overdosed on dangerous narcotics, possibly heroin laced with painkiller fentanyl, in Chicago over a three-day span, according to city health and fire officials.

The Chicago Tribune, citing hospital officials, reported by Friday afternoon at least 14 people were rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital in Chicago to be treated for possible heroin overdoses, and some patients still had needles in their arms....(check out the full story).

Treatment for drug abuse and addiction is delivered in many different settings using a variety of behavioral and pharmacological approaches. In the United States, more than 14,500 specialized drug treatment facilities provide counseling, behavioral therapy, medication, case management, and other types of services to persons with substance use disorders.

Unfortunately, managed care has resulted in shorter average stays, while a historical lack of or insufficient coverage for substance abuse treatment has curtailed the number of operational programs...according to the latest report by NIDA.

No Accident: Deadly Greed of Pharmaceutical Companies Drives the Heroin Epidemic. 

 

Addiction is not always intentional... Read what ABC News has to say about the Big Drug Companies. We approached one of these companies, recently, to ask for a contribution to addiction recovery... Guess what they said... "It's very nobel what you are doing and we applaud you however; It's not in-line with what we do".   Reeeaaallllyy!!! I stated.  And I thanked them for their time. I thought they would at least look into this deeper. It's a sad say when the very companies that claim to care really have selective concerns; especially when we take into consideration that they were one of the big drug companies that created Heroin. I was shocked to say the least. ~Rmv  March 16, 2016.
