(EMAILWIRE.COM, May 21, 2016 ) Nashville, TN -- According to the Boston Globe, a new report has been released stating that more than 50 percent of opioid overdose deaths in 2015. The report by the Department of Health found that Fentanyl has been a key factor in the opioid overdose epidemic affecting the country. Fentanyl is an opioid pain medication which is more powerful than morphine and heroin. Fentanyl abuse is especially controversial, as people with pain disorders who depend on powerful opioids are finding it more difficult to obtain the medication
Nashville and the surrounding areas has definitely felt the effects of the opioid abuse epidemic, including the unfortunate increase in overdose deaths caused by Fentanyl, because of this, centers providing drug detox and Addiction treatment in Nashville are becoming more important each day. As one such facility, Drug Rehab Nashville urges for greater measures to be taken to prevent further tragedies due to misuse of Fentanyl.
A representative of Drug Rehab Nashville comments:
"The effect of Fentanyl on the rate of opioid overdose deaths and the overdose epidemic affecting our country is indicative of the desperate need for reformation regarding prescription of opioid medications, availability and public funding of addiction recovery programs, and public education about substance abuse. Every death caused by abuse of drugs or alcohol is a preventable one; we need to come together to find real, practical solutions for this rapidly spreading public health threat. We can begin by acknowledging and eradicating the stigmas associated with substance abuse, as they often stand in the way of people seeking treatment when they need it most."
