Trauma and the mental, physical and substance abuse related implications.
The implications of trauma. Substance abuse, addictive behaviors, anxiety, depression etc.
Prescription Thugs. Good documentary about the prescription drug epidemic in our country. Big pharma, doctors, pharmaceutical reps…are they all just drug pushers and dealers? Big pharma doesn’t seem to want to create meds that eradicate illness…there is not as much profit in that. They want to develop drugs to manage symptoms and keep you reliant on meds. Narcotics like opiates, benzos and amphetamines are some of the most highly prescribed meds and are also highly correlated with addiction.
Addiction. Who is really responsible. If you have a script from a doctor, is that just a hall pass to abuse a legal drug?
