Rhinebeck, NY (PRWEB) March 03, 2015
Topical BioMedics, Inc., announces its March Pain Management Workshop will be held as a webinar streamed live on Tuesday, March 10th, 12pm – 1pm and 4pm to 5pm. Afterward, the workshops will be archived and accessible 24/7.
The Pain Management Workshops are free and open to the public. The topic for the March 10th workshop is “Opioid Addiction: An Over-Medicated Society.” It’s a very timely discussion, considering that the U.S. represents 5% of the world’s population, yet consumers 99% of the world’s Vicodin and 84% of the Oxycontin. Drug addiction in the U.S. has reached epidemic proportions, and 46 people die per day from overdosing on Rx painkillers*....The number is even higher if those who overdose on heroin are factored in, as many people who get addicted to painkillers often turn to heroin as a less-expensive alternative.
