Opioid Addictions a Result of Poor Pain Management

Opioid Addictions - The Bergand Group

How and why do many people begin using opioids in the first place? In a lot of cases, it’s to ease pain. In order to lessen the number of opioid addictions within the country today and to help those patients, we have to find new, better ways to ease their pain.

Better Pain Relief Will Reduce Numbers of Opioid Addictions

“America must deal with our pain epidemic if we have any hope of dealing with the painkiller epidemic.” It may seem counter-intuitive to turn our attention away from what we see as the primary issue, but this may be the only way that we’re able to actually attack it head-on. Luckily, the government recently reached out to the National Institute of Health and communicated that the NIH should look more thoroughly into how people can better “prevent, treat, and manage pain.”

Essentially, we need the help of all available professionals and agencies in order to effectively combat this situation. Not everyone has the same experience with pain and not everyone has access to a diverse range of methods of treating it, so it’s more complicated than finding a single method that works and trying to apply it across the board.

“Better understanding why people turn to opioids in the first place can be an important part of our national response.” Again, this will change depending on the demographic in question, but we have to start somewhere in order to alleviate the harsh reality of the current state of opioid addictions.
