A national emergency … the worst drug crisis in U.S. history. The grim news surrounding opioid abuse continues to make headlines.
But you know what lies behind the headlines. People. People whose lives have been devastated. Jail time and lost jobs. Shattered families. Early deaths and grieving families. People like you and I, prescribed a highly addictive substance to treat their chronic pain or after a minor medical procedure, who find themselves in a dangerous free fall that leaves their lives in ruin. People who walk through your door looking to you for help.
Yet opioid disorders are substantially different from other addictions. Drug-driven brain change and physical dependence, coupled with a substance that perilously slows breathing and heart rate have created a deadly epidemic of unprecedented proportions. Super potent synthetics like Fentanyl are flowing into our cities and towns; a cheap but deadly substitute putting the lives of opioid abusers at risk. And many individuals with opioid use disorders have at least one co-occurring mental health problem that must be addressed in the effort to achieve and sustain recovery.
A one-size fits all approach to addiction simply won’t suffice.
Watch this critical recording and get the tools you need to end the suffering and bring hope and healing to your clients!
