A recent article from Vice investigates this relationship between addiction and America’s response to it and finds that the recent uptick in opioid and benzodiazepine use is part of a much older cycle with roots that are complicated and difficult to discern
GULF BREEZE, Fla. (PRWEB) May 17, 2018
The United States has a peculiar and troubling history with addiction and how it responds to addiction. Since the early twentieth century, Americans have moved from one new fix-all drug to the next, in what appears to be an endless and ongoing cycle of addiction. This past shows us that instead of addressing the underlying causes of an addiction, we will simply trade one problem for another in time. Unless we engage with the underlying issues, we are likely to continue to see that same cycle continue into the future.
A recent article from Vice investigates this relationship between addiction and America’s response to it and finds that the recent uptick in opioid and benzodiazepine use is part of a much older cycle with roots that are complicated and difficult to discern.
Their report highlights that America has a storied history with sedatives that dates back to 1920s. It goes on to show that once a drug has been found to be problematic, American culture usually finds a new replacement. The article also raises an appropriate and important question: Why do we always need some chemical fix?”
That is an excellent question and one that led to the development of the THRIVE® program at Gulf Breeze Recovery. This question is important for the nation as a whole to consider as well as individuals.
