Addicted to Addicts: Survival 101

Addicted to Addicts: Survival 101 – The Opiate Epidemic: Where Do We Stand?

Are people aware of the Opioid Epidemic?  Have enough people been touched by this that everyone is aware of it?  The Fed Up Rally in Washington DC last weekend, October 3, 2015, was an effort to create more awareness for our law makers, government, and the general public.  The Rally and march to the White House was impressive.  There was lots of sadness and anger.  Did you see anything about this in your local papers?  Did you see it on the National News?  Check out Denise’s coverage on facebook.
This issue is really a “tough nut to crack”.  People don’t want to know about it, talk about it, do anything about it.  All of this while many are losing their lives in epic numbers.
On this week’s show Denise talks a bit about her experience at the rally in DC and the march to the White House.
Her experience made her reflect on an interview she once had with Sherrie Rubin, of Hope2gether Foundation, regarding a very important issue related to this epidemic that almost no one speaks about.  What can happen when an opiate addict overdoses and doesn’t die? This is her experience.
