was hoping Macy would talk about the changes n addicts and how they can actually be helped but t felt like this section was science light and hope heavy She likes to blame various aspects of the system usually lack of affordable rehab beds when an addict finally says I m ready to uit but doesn t really address the most obvious problem that she herself notes only 50% of addicts who get Crossing Boarders into a program and on maintenance drugs stay sober for a year That s a really shitty success rate would you go to a surgeon who was only successful 50% of the time Oh we got most of your appendix but not all oft Take thyroid medication or nsulin f there was only a 50% chance The Outcast Highlander it would work Yeah probably not These people are desperate so they re taking what

the author narrowed Fractions: The First Half of The Fall Revolution it down to just a couplendividuals and ncluded factual nformation on opioids and addiction I felt the book was disjointed due to there being so many different people written about and the book jumps from one person to the next and back again It just didn t flow The Divide: American Injustice in the Age of the Wealth Gap in my opinion There wasn t much newn this for me that I haven t read Latin for Children Primer a DVDs Chant CD in other recent books and livingn Appalachia I m well aware of the crisis I see people just about everywhere I go who are n the throes of addiction I did learn some about medication assisted treatment ncluding Suboxone that I didn t know before so this book was not a complete washout People

roots of the epidemic stems from a perfect storm of factors the government mandate that physicians make adeuate pain control a priority Purdue Pharma who aggressively marketed Oxycontin to doctors as effective without causing dependency They hid evidence that this was a highly addictive drug physicians writing large amounts of the narcotic Oxycodone often for minor procedures outdated methods of treating addicts proven by multiple studies to be unsuccessful treating addicts like criminals again exhaustive research tells us t doesn t work once addicted to Oxycontin and no longer able to obtain

inappropriately and many have chosen to just stop prescribing I read this book a month ago but have hesitated to write a review because I m conflicted Theres another side to the story and chronic pain patients are the unintended victims I wish the author had addressed this The Night Before Baseball at the Park by the Bay issue and given a balanced report Not everyone who uses Oxy will go on to become a drug addictAccording to while prescription opioid misuses a risk factor for starting heroin use only a small fraction of people who misuse pain relievers switch to heroin According to a
