Alchohol is an addiction that most counselors do not mind being addicted to. The Counseling center is like so many others that are....all about the allmighty dollar. YOURS!

Orman Hall. A complete waste of oxygen. He has never seen a levy he wouldn't campaign for and now he has a state level position to shake the wallets of the citizens.
Over dose deaths are the result of poor choices, given all the poor choice people take there should be thousands per day to thin the herd.

Drug abuse rates, especially opiates and benzo's have skyrocketed in the workplace since drug testing began. For those who got hooked on Oxy(contin or codone) have found heroin is a cheaper, more attainable high.

Drug laws have created this mess.

Drug od's are in the 1,400 range...all heart attacks with cocaine found in the system, even at minor levels are called od's.

Legalize all of it, spend prison and punishment money towards rehabilitation.

No one has ever died from marijuana, yet the jails are full of pot offenders as the rapists go free.

If the addicts can afford a $300 a day habit then they can afford their own rehab! Maybe if they had to pay for it then they might just get clean. As it is they are getting suboxone from Compass Health and selling it on the streets. ENOUGH is ENOUGH ED.
