Sadly, millions of people are addicted to opioids though no fault of their own. They were prescribed powerful painkillers for an injury or post-surgery, and are struggling to wean off of them. Many turn to illegal drugs when prescription painkillers are no longer prescribed.
According to the Ohio Department of Health, opioids are killing more than 8 people every day in the state of Ohio. Nationally, the numbers of deaths are exponential.
Why are opioids so addictive, and who is to blame for this health crisis?
Drug companies and medical professionals are to blame! For more than a decade, drug manufacturers, distributors and some medical experts downplayed the addictiveness and risks of opioids. They have spread deceptive information and carelessly over-prescribed these highly addictive drugs. This led to over-dependence and a catastrophically high overdose rate.
If you developed an addiction to painkillers, lost a loved one to an overdose, or were injured because of an opioid addiction – you are a victim! You have the right to bring legal action against those that caused you harm, or a loved one’s death.
