This article by William White educates on the benefits of (NA) Narcotics Anonymous which is often left out of the recommendations for how “our country” can help stop increasing numbers of people experiencing opioid addiction and opioid overdose deaths.
There are many misconceptions about NA from facilities or associations offering clinical methods of treatment as NA is not regulated approach. My thought is that talking to a lamppost about your problems would be better than nothing at all and NA offers support and a community that could be enough to raise the users consciousness to take another step. It is much more than a lamppost and additionally so are you. Do you have a friend that you suspect may have an addiction to pain killers? Offer your ear.
