It is no secret that families in Rosemead, California, are struggling under the weight of the opioid epidemic that has swept the country in the past decade. Too often, people who would have never considered making choices that would lead to any kind of substance use disorder are treated for an acute injury with prescription painkillers that end up changing their lives for the worse.

In response to this deadly problem, the state of California has asked all county emergency departments and medical clinics to take action, and Los Angeles County took the challenge.1 Health officials made a number of proactive changes to their management of pain among patients, including to prescribe only generic painkillers instead of their brand-name counterparts.1

Why? The brand-name versions of painkillers sell for a much higher price on the black market than generic pills. So much so, in fact, that some drug traffickers use a cheap substance like fentanyl to create pills that look exactly like the real thing—brand stamp and all.1 The idea is that rather than coming to the ER and pill-seeking in hopes of getting brand-name painkillers to sell on the street, only patients who genuinely need relief from pain will come in for treatment.

Is your loved one buying pills off the street to support an opioid addiction? Or are you struggling to control your use of alcohol, benzodiazepines, methamphetamine, or other drugs? If so, now is the time to find out more about local addiction treatment programs that can help you or your family member break the grip of addiction and live a life in recovery.

Frequently, drugs will leave the addicted person with unpleasant side effects or withdrawal symptoms once the body has become accustomed to having the substance. Professionally administered detoxification can lessen the symptoms for anyone seeking to attain sobriety.
