I’m curious to see how this decade will be remembered in our history books. Will it be the decade that the country was delivered a sobering wake-up call when it comes to the opioid epidemic currently sweeping the country, the years in which we finally started laying the down the blueprint for handling addiction with the care and attention it needs? Or will it only be the beginning of something far more terrible and tragic?
Fentanyl is one of those drugs that a lot of addicts have taken but didn’t mean to. The boom in fentanyl on city streets started around 2001 and it seemed to grow out of control from there.
