Missouri’s heroin epidemic

Missouri state regulators are cracking down on doctors who over prescribe pain killers, making them more expensive and harder to obtain. The unfortunates who are addicted to pain pills but can no longer get them are searching for replacement pain medications. Many of these unfortunates are turning to heroin. The motivating factors for the surge in heroin use seems to be lack of availability of painkiller medications and heroin’s ease of availability, high potency and low price. Heroin is extremely addictive and once addicted, users stop at almost nothing to obtain it even if it means risking their job, damaging relationships, sharing needles and going to jail. Heroin addiction is a chronic illness that causes compulsive heroin use despite devastating consequences and the heroin problem is currently rising throughout the State of Missouri.
