Doctors Prescribe Narcotics Which Cause Addiction, Top Official Says
Date:7/15/2013

(PRWEB) July 15, 2013

The Los Angeles Times reported on 7/2 in their article Doctors prescribe narcotics too often for pain, CDC chief says, that Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has issued a strong statement regarding narcotics usage in this country. He says that doctors are prescribing narcotic drugs for simple aches and pain and at high rates causing patients to become addictive and overdose from the drugs.

Those experiencing a prescription drug abuse problem should check into a detox center such as Harbor Village and seek the private drug treatment they deserve. Harbor Village, a 24/7 professionally supervised detox center allows each client to stay and experience a luxury, state-of-the art environment. Located in South Florida, the facility welcomes clients with upscale accommodations including a beautifully furnished suite with satellite television, over an acre of outdoor lounge area, spa, salon, massage and acupuncture services, nutritious, gourmet dining and an individualized plan that is designed for each client's specific needs.

In the article, Doctors prescribe narcotics too often for pain, CDC chief says, Dr. Frieden said that doctors should be utilizing exercise and therapy first before prescribing strong drugs to treat a chronic pain.

"These are dangerous medications, and they should be reserved for situations like severe cancer pain," Frieden said. "In many other situations, the risks far outweigh the benefits. Prescribing an opiate may be condemning a patient to lifelong addiction and life threatening complications."

A Los Angeles Times study found that most of the over 3,700 overdose deaths that occurred in Southern California from 2006 to 2011 involved painkillers prescribed by doctors. According to autopsy reports and other evidence, the deceased became addicted to painkillers, which led to their overdoses.

“Prescription drug abuse is a serious matter that requires care from a qualified and certified center. At Harbor Village, we recognize how destructive this dependency can be on drug abusers and provide each client with a personalized program that allows them to recover,” said Robert Niznik, Harbor Village CEO.
