The abuse needs to stop, no doubt about it.
Perhaps this way will cull out the abusers while allowing those in need to get help.
IF, they can get their act together and get the system up and running.

how many prescription can a Doctor prescribe in 8 hours period? none stop, too many, a day, 480 minutes divide by 5 minute per patients equal to 96 patients per day. from the the moment you pay cash and from the time you actually see the Dr. and out the prescription. Did I mention one Doctor! From $200 to $400 per patients multiply by 5 days a week. and follow-up for 30 days. easy money,,,, where's the empathy? USA, USA, USA where's your power.. in prescription (RX)..

Judith Pickerell is one of many people who needs treatment: if she wants to get clean. Our jails and prisons are too full of people who make decisions on crimes where they are the only victims. Sure relatives and sigificant others are hurt as well as the person themselves, but this is a concious decision people make, and no matter what anybody says, they hurt themselves more than anybody else. The only rerason they should be incarcerated is if they break other laws associated with the obtaining or use of these drugs. And they should be given consideration in court for those crimes if they complete in-patient and out patient therapy. God bless Drug Courts and Judges who know and consider alternative actions.
Some relatives preach for people to get off of drugs, but instead of contacting a counselor for an Intervention,(probably the best tool to help people with substance abuse problems)they call law enforcement authorities who must act accordingly.
