I lost a former gf to oxycontin abuse. I don't think that her family and friends are looking for someone to blame and we're not angry at anyone. Just sad. I know that her parents didn't do anything wrong and they do feel guilty, as all parents would. Making oxycontin tamper proof is a good idea, but addicts will find a way. I think that treating addiction as the disease that it is will be the answer. Once pain people stop blaming addicts, this can improve all of us getting medical care. I've read many news stories about Florida and that they had such bad drug problem that the state had to call in the feds- DEA. It's not pain patients fault but Florida had a huge problem and couldn't take care of it without fed intervention. If we could stop blaming each other it could help pain patients and addicts alike. They need help, too.View Thread
Hi anon, I clicked on to the site after you mentioned what it's about. Not surprised to find out that the law group practice is to defend doctors, nurses, pharmacists, etc for malpractice cases! So the lawyers in the practice don't give a hoot about the stories that people post. I have to agree that it's a scam that's exploiting the fears of people in pain. Ive read the site before but just joined.View Thread
