Drug Abuse Not Result of a Single Entity

Drug Abuse - The Bergand Group

When so many people suffer as a result of addictions and overdoses, we want to point fingers, to identify a ‘culprit,’ and to make that person pay. It’s much  more difficult to face reality without someone to blame. However, the development of drug abuse habits isn’t always able to be attributed to a single root cause or figure.

Pointing Fingers When It Comes to Drug Abuse

Time marches on, but nothing seems to change. There is a lot of talk about adopting new policies and taking harsher stances on certain things, people, or groups, but many are still suffering from addictions to opioids, heroin, and more. Teenagers and above are all exposed to the threat of an addiction, whether it be in college, after being laid off, or following a surgery. There are a dozen ways that this could happen, and yet so many in our country want to lay the blame on a single culprit.

That single culprit does not exist. Certainly, the development of habits of drug abuse can be attributed to certain conditions and situations, but there isn’t a solitary entity to blame for the state of our nation as it pertains to addiction. Doctors have taken fire for opioid abuse, lawmakers for their lack of action, dealers for providing drugs on the streets when they can’t be obtained in other ways. Instead of spending so much time and energy hunting for a scapegoat, we should all be focusing on providing relief and aid for those who need it, and on encouraging those who can make a difference to do so.
