Accidental Overdose…( But Who’s Accident)

Over and over in the media we hear and see it. The constant reminder of the current drug epidemic in our world. Its true, we have a huge problem – especially in the area of opiates and heroin. Here is the question that rolls through my mind whenever I read one of the  ” young man  dies from apparent overdose” headlines; Who caused the accident? Are so many people who use drugs today so low functioning that they ” accidentally ” shoot up 3x too much – or take 10 more pills then they know is lethal? I doubt it.

So what could it be? I ll tell you in a minute. First let me give you an example of another scenario. I know of a guy who came home from the hospital after some major surgery. The first night home he reached for his prescribed medicines. There was a narcotic pain killer, an anti-inflammatory, a sleep aide ( ambien, I believe) , blood thinners, and 1-2 other insignificant ones. He took his medicine as prescribed.

Within 4 hours he was outside ( 2:30am) -yard hopping, hiding behind big areas of grass ( he called them bunkers), lying on his stomach and ” defending his country – so he thought. Hours later when the ” war” was over he went to the local 7-11 where he was sure the secret service planned to pick him up ( undercover) to take him to see President Bush, who was going to present him an award for outstanding bravery. It gets even crazier but I think you all get the point. Plus, I don’t want anyone to figure out that the man in the story is me..

In my case the doctor called it a  ” rare drug interaction ” and switched my medications.

Here is my point; if I had been found dead, or God forbid committed a crime during that ” experience” there is no question that the headline would have read something like this ” man on drugs goes on war rampage” or ” man checked into psychiatric unit after apparent drug overdose”. You get the point.

Its way too easy for doctors or law enforcement to lead the public to false conclusions to protect what may incriminate them…

Social Worker - 20+ years. Experienced with mental and behavioral health as well as alternative education, juvenile justice, addictions treatment also. Currently working with agencies and insurers on changing the way all the systems in these work, using my methods and model of treatments for all the above. We have a horrible system in place our success rates in treatment are 20 -35% and we pay doctors to keep us sick. We also have a problem with drug companies paying doctors to write for dangerous meds to even kids, all in the name of $.. I plan on changing that and in the meantime have been aggressively working at using this site as a platform to offer coaching, counseling and many other services in several languages..oh, and services that actually work! There's a new concept.. I use models I have developed and used with success rates more like 75-85%. Only programs I personally put together and ran in my 20 years in field... Please join the incredible group of followers here as very exciting things are happening. We currently have followers in 60 countries. Most of all, I promise to never let you leave my watch still suffering. My goal has always been to educate, dial in the least restrictive, least expensive , most successful and timely treatment possible. I want everyone to know that our country is a pharmaceutical playground and there ARE cures for things like cancer, liver disease, parkinsons and many more..as a matter of fact they are being cured ( not symptoms treated forever) but actually cured of diseases in many countries who don't allow drug companies to dictate laws.. Money is the only reason we are not using the same healthy and safe natural remedies that God put on this planet. Am I saying that our healthcare system is aware of cures but watches millions die slow painful deaths all in the name of money? Well, I will have to think about it - UMM- YES! I am saying that. If you have not read my homepage please do..let me tease you with a tidbit to get you there... Did you know that the USA is one of only 2 countries in entire world that even ALLOWS any drug companies to put an ad for drugs on television? Hmm. Why does the entire world protect their own, and make sure swindlers cant twist their minds an manipulate them into buying snake oil from drug companies..and why do they make legal the natural plants that heal cancer and so much more? I think you get it... Click Follow...
