Painkiller Epidemic Update: Prescription Drug Addiction Warnings go Mainstream

 Prescription Drug Addiction Warnings go Mainstream

CNN, in a recent “mainstream” CNN.com/health article, included prescription drug addiction in their list of Five symptoms men shouldn’t ignore. This mention not only represents a very real danger, but may mark the first time a major news outlet has addressed the subject of prescription drug addiction alongside relatively commonplace health concerns like a large belly and frequent urination.

In my opinion, this is further evidence that the “story” I’ve been calling the Painkiller Epidemic is very big, very real, and very likely to rear its ugly head on the national stage very soon. Once a concern only on the radar screens of addiction counselors, the subject of painkiller addiction finally seems as though it may be slowly working its way, via the mainstream media, into the public consciousness.
