For our vets, who have risked their lives to protect, defend and help us in times of need, many are struggling with prescription drug use and a deteriorating life. We want to help them and give them back hope for a happier drug-free new year.
Albion, MI (PRWEB) December 12, 2013
Narconon Freedom Center, a drug rehab facility, is responding to the story CBS News broke this fall with a holiday special offer for veterans. The CBS story (cbsnews.com/videos/congress-probes-veterans-prescription-drug-overdose-deaths/) revealed returning veterans are receiving lethal amounts of pain medication from Veterans Affairs hospitals with case after case of veterans who died after following doctor’s orders.
Congress started a probe into veteran’s prescription drug overdose deaths resulting in a House subcommittee holding a hearing on the problem. Department of Veterans Affairs physicians told the subcommittee that hospital administrators regularly pressured them to prescribe highly addictive narcotic painkillers to patients, even those they had not personally examined.
During the hearing, veterans told law makers that alternative treatments to opiates existed only on paper and they found it very difficult to get medical care that goes beyond powerful medication.
While the system is broken and law makers work slowly to address the issue, Narconon Freedom Center wants to support our vets during the holiday season. They are offering 50% off the cost of their drug rehab program to any veteran as a thank you for all they have contributed sacrificed for our country.
“This time of year is supposed to be filled with joy and hope for a better new year. For our vets, who have risked their lives to protect, defend and help us in times of need, many are struggling with prescription drug use and a deteriorating life. We want to help them and give them back hope for a happier drug-free new year,” said Brian Kuehne, Executive Director Narconon Freedom Center Michigan.
