Medical experts: Opioid addiction is ‘biggest epidemic’ ever
This is a news from KCCI Desmones about Opioids addiction.
In the past 15 years, 650,000 Americans have died from painkiller overdoses, prompting medical experts to call the addiction to prescription pills the “biggest epidemic” in history.
Karen Purscell shares on her Opioids addiction for the past 13 years.
“I feel like there needs to be a face put to it,” said Karen Purscell, who has been battling opioid addiction for 13 years. “I feel like people really need to know how serious this is.”
Admittedly ashamed of her addiction to prescription drugs, Purscell said she’s ready to speak publicly about what she calls “a deadly epidemic.”
“People need to be aware that this is killing people left and right,” she said.
“I was taking three or four 60 milligrams of morphine a day at my lowest point, which is very strong,” Purscell said.
“I would wake up the next morning just throwing up and shaking,” she said. “You get so sick when you don’t have it in your system anymore.”
