A new Opioid Abuse training program is mandated by the FDA to be funded by opioid drug manufacturers. A program now is long overdue. However, it does show a ripple in the FDA’s view on opioid abuse and opioid deaths. Fox news recently posted an article outlining the program which sadly is voluntary.
Prescribing doctors are the gateway to opioid prescription addiction. Prescription drug abuse starts and ends with doctors. Ironically, the new program only mandates funding by drug companies but does not mandate participation by doctors who are responsible for the massive genocide occurring.
Addiction and the paper trail
Our brightest and young people in the United States have easy access to opioid drugs which destroy their lives. Opioid abuse is the leading cause of death for young people. I have said this many times, there is NO therapeutic use for opioids. Therapeutic use studies are performed by drug companies and the results are skewed for them. Drug companies self fund studies and establish a hypothesis for the drug use. Consequently they seek results which support it rather than allowing the scientific method to substantiate or invalidate it.
FDA and opioid prescribing doctors are the source of the crisis our country is going through. Therefore, without the distribution of the drugs, more than 90% of the addicted users would never have considered heroin. Heroin usage is at a all time high. Increased heroin addiction is correlated to the rise of potent opioid drugs such as Fentanyl, Oxycontin, etc. When patient no longer can get a legal prescriptions they turn to the streets and engage in illegal activity. eferred to as “cross over” addicts are your normal mom and pop people. Almost all new illegal drug users are turning to heroin to alleviate their withdrawal symptoms. It is a vicious cycle which the drug companies are aware of. Drug companies knowingly create drugs which will skirt the FDA rules. As a result, they create the opioid dependence they want to increase their profits.
