So to begin. I’m a person not in recovery, I have had no stents with opiates, no long time relationship with stimulants, I have not hit rock bottom, I have not been homeless, I have not seen what most addicts have.
But before you turn this off, I’ve looked at the system with sober eyes. I can tell you from start to finish the countless areas of absolute fraud, manipulation, deception, rivers to greed involved in the system of recovery.
The overall motif of cropping people to opiates may start with the Sacklers, Purdue Pharma, but pointing the finger to them and them alone is simply ignorant to the large scale of absolute corruption spreading like wildfire across this country.
To stand at the foothills of the Whitehouse boasting a radical civic movement against big pharma is shortsighted for certain.
Macroscopically, if we look to the system in place big pharma is only one aspect. All treatment owners seem to be holding the exact same business plan, seemlessly handed to them from big pharma, with variations to keywords: individualized treatment, efficacious treatment, evidence based treatment, reality based treatment. SEO’s mirror this madness , and the birth of online management of SEO, policing accrediting bodies on false moral compass cyber patrolling.... the rest unravels.
Your local treatment facility should stand arm in arm with your local drug dealer. Your marketers in arms with your local drug mules.
There’s a united front that seems to be over looked. The streets get you hooked. Big pharma pushes their agenda on doctors to get you hooked. The fire is burning on both ends.
On another Everest, you have private equity, lobbyists, your local government official all dipping their money into the bins of addiction, purchasing treatment centers in lump sum, or guaranteeing licensure for equity, with no regards to quality staff, no regards to efficacy, no regards to the harsh reality of how deadly treatment can be.
You have said lobbyists and government officials then submitting other moneys to the Sacklers. The Sacklers then submit their moneys into treatment. We have double dipping happening nation wide.
They are winning. We are dying.
