(EMAILWIRE.COM, August 02, 2016 ) Miami, FL -- As reported by Columbia University Medical Center, a recent study conducted by researchers with the institute determined that people- specifically women and the elderly- who suffer from moderate to severe chronic pain are more vulnerable to opioid abuse than other demographics. While men and younger generations still represent the largest population of people with substance abuse disorders, women and the elderly most commonly report chronic pain as a cause for their disorders. Other factors include mood and anxiety
Miami Drug Rehab recognizes that patients with chronic pain conditions need care in order to manage their symptoms and lead normal lives. However, the Heroin rehab in Miami also recognizes the dangers of prescription drug abuse devolving into illicit drug use and addiction. While the medical and legal communities struggle to find a compromise that protects our communities and serves those in need of medical care, we must all learn to understand the dangers posed by use of powerful opioid medications.
A representative of Miami Drug Rehab comments:
"One of the main challenges facing litigators attempting to address the opioid abuse is the finding a compromise which still allows for treatment of patients with chronic pain. Though powerful painkillers lead to thousands of preventable deaths each year, they also provide relief for people who would otherwise suffer constant agony. Unfortunately that leaves them vulnerable to opioid abuse disorders, an entire new realm of needless suffering. Medical professionals can help to find that compromise by taking the time to learn about each patient's family history, mood and anxiety disorders, and other contributing factors."
