A New Outlook on the Opioid Crisis

A New Outlook on the Opioid Crisis It would appear that the opiate crisis can be read, heard, and watched at every turn. How is it that suddenly in this day and age of knowledge we, as a civilization, are plagued with such a life-killing substance?

Canada Health Care; Get in Line Option

Canada Health Care If one wishes to understand what the problem is with helping drug addicts from all walks of life in Canada it’s best to start with knowing what our healthcare system is.

Anyone who has ever been through a withdrawal period of some opiate addiction can attest to the terrible discomforts associated with such action, the environment of the drug rehab center in which it is done is important.
