Has America’s “Opioid Crisis” Invaded Your Home?

It’s almost impossible to turn on the television or scroll your favorite social media site without hearing about “America’s Opioid Crisis”. Opioids are a class of drug that can occur naturally or made by scientists in a lab. Opioids are often prescribed to treat moderate to severe pain and include drugs such as Hydrocodone, Morphine, Fentanyl. An illegal substance, Heroin, is also included in this class (National Institute on Drug Abuse). Becoming addicted to such drugs may start from a simple dentist visit, a sprained ankle, or minor surgery. What happens when these drugs end up in your medicine cabinet? What happens when America’s crisis becomes personal? Addiction changes the dynamics of relationships. Trust, communication, finances, and child-rearing can all be affected. Home can start to feel like a battleground. However, addiction is a disease and help is available. If you, your spouse, or someone you love is struggling with opioid addiction there are several treatment options. Don’t wait another day. Your house can be a home again!
