Drug and Alcohol Rehab Boston asserts treating the underlying causes of heroin addiction will help assuage the opiate death toll.

A recent report for Mass Live made on April 28th, 2015 states 1,000 persons have died as a direct result of an opiate overdose in the state of Massachusetts in 2014. This marks a 33% rise in overdose deaths attributed to prescription opiate medications, and heroin. Mass live quotes Gov. Charlie Baker, “This issue doesn’t care about geography. This issue doesn’t care about race. This issue doesn’t care about income. This issue doesn’t care about class.” As the state of Mass. reels from the effects of the opiate epidemic more people are being introduced to heroin by way of manipulating the healthcare system to score prescription drugs. Baker has created a task force to help address the drug epidemic. Drug and Alcohol Rehab Boston is an addiction and recovery Boston facility dedicated to helping patients of heroin and opiate addiction recover. In response to the increase of heroin related deaths the facility is expanding its heroin rehab program to the entire state of Massachusetts.

Drug and Alcohol Rehab Boston asserts treating the underlying causes of heroin addiction will help assuage the opiate death toll. An associate comments, “It’s unreal the number of people who are dying as a result of heroin and opiates. It’s heartbreaking. But there’s something we can do if we can get heroin abusers into treatment. Addiction is typically caused by underlying traumas- if addicts have the opportunity to address those inward ails it would be easier to prevent users from seeking the drug. But of course, when you factor in the physical aspect of addiction it’s not that sample. Heroin users and opiate addicts need to go through the entire cycle of addiction treatment, and that includes physical detox and extensive therapy. It is only with a combination approach that we will be able to truly curb the heroin epidemic. Encouraging treatment as opposed to shaming users can be as simple as lending a helping hand, giving someone a brochure, or a simple pamphlet.”
