It sounds like the problem there is someone getting rid of their illegal drugs so they don't get caught with them because they are illegal. How often do you hear about dogs getting ahold of discarded alcohol?

My state has definitely cracked down on controlled substance prescriptions. Unfortunately that means for me that I have to suffer without medication for severe PTSD (and other disorders), as nothing helps me except benzodiazepines.

"grandma can't do that, grandma cannot that..." and I cannot understand it: why do people talk about themselves in 3rd person singular when talking to children? If you are Bill, and you get sick, you don't call your boss and say "Bill can't go to work."

Thousands of Americans are dying regularly through Opioids-sales which that sinister Rudy Guliani and his big Pharma. NRA/ ALEC Republican-mobsters enabled, yet Ohio's religious fanatic NRA_Republic "god's squads" police officers and the whole pathologically corrupt Republican-led U.S Justice systems have ignored for years and still do so, Big pharmacies, the pill-Doctors and all the still ongoing open daylights streets-opioids-dealings. Meanwhile the same trigger-happy NRA-Republican Nazi-state's police officers are joyously mass arresting and shooting dead minorities, so-called "illegal" Mexicans and Liberal feminists for, guess what exactly? For the freaking mere smell of Marijuana/Cannabis in those people' cars, or that their camera-phones ( or their big Black COCKS, maybe?) in their hands look like "GUNS", mind you that is the absurd murder-excuses made in an asinine institutionally genocidal RACIST religious fanatic assholes-run country as the U.S.A. where both things are quasi legal. God-given greatest Democracy U.S.A.? Pah! Bullshit! I say Legally f*ck that kind of your criminally corrupt genocidal racist religious fanatic NRA's Trump Republican-Nazis-run authoritarian U.S.A. In all and in any Courts around Earth, soon Kiddos! Best, A.E. Projectheureka LLC;

The Opioid Epidemic is not nearly as bad as people make it out to be. Driving your car to work in the morning is more dangerous than using recreational opioids.

While many people are upset by this, what I find is that most addictions and infections come from hospitals. It is unfortunate, but maybe we don't need painkillers as often as we think we do...?

Journalists only want sensationalism; we, the chronic pain community have quietly existed in the hushed recesses of medicine-nobody is aware that we exist. It is only because of the govt.s myopic point of view-knee jerk reaction to the headlines, which we do not occupy. Pain medicine specialists have typically come from the ranks of anethesiologists, internists, and neurologists-Very higly trained and specialized practices-that unlike heart surgeons or other specialties grab the headlines. When was the last ime you saw a major headline about some breakthrough in anesthesiology???? We are the patients that the medical profession has kept in the dark, because they cannot cure or heal us, mostly remediate our pain. Not very glorious or headline grabbing. We are the few, the undertreated, the ones who are seldom cured---not very sensational. How can you describe to a journalist what living in a state of 7-10on the pain scale is like? WE JUST DON'T GRAB HEADLINES LIKE 20,000 deathes from prescription pain killers over the last____years, monthes, etc.

I had a cancer and a rare infection in my right leg that rotted 70% of my leg, and was in mind boggling pain for a year with no relief... except when i was paralyzed from the waist down for 5 days.... I would take all that pain time 5 rather than have been exposed to oxycontin.... It broke me.... It's 15 years later and I'm still working out the effects..... I hope everyone involved in its development and especially everyone who made money is made to take it..... Fuck you you evil cunts if I lose my way again and my morals.... I would want to find you.....thank Fuck karma got my back John.... Mr Oliver.... You are a God and a genius please never stop what you do..... Funny as fuck, machine gun pace and rapier pointed prose combine with intelligence, insight and cutting logic... and sarcastic anger masterfully, almost beautifully added for effect.... You are a true artist

I recovered from opiate addiction 2 years ago, and let me tell you, it was a battle. These drugs destroyed my life, and I lost EVERYTHING. But I finally have my life back. Treating chronic pain with opiates is a complex issue. On the one hand, not everyone gets full blown addicted, and a lot of people need them to live day to day, so doctors really have to make good judgements. But some people will start to become addicted to them. This is how it works... the pills make the pain go away, but then when you stop taking them the pain comes back WORSE, because your body is trying to tell you that something is wrong.. (that is what pain is for... it is a message from your body). So then you take more pills to get rid of the added pain, PLUS the original pain. Suddenly you're increasing your dosage and taking more than before. You just want to feel good again and be able to function. The longer you take them, the more both your body and your mind tell you that you are in pain when you are not "medicated". And soon, you can't tell what is real pain and what is the withdrawal from the meds. Your brain chemistry begins to change. You will to do ANYTHING and EVERYTHING you have to do to get the pills. It changes your personality, your values, your spirituality. Before you know it, you are a completely different person, someone you don't recognize, and your whole life revolves around getting and using more pain killers. I originally got them for pain (that should have been treated with physical therapy), I should have tried another therapy first, but I didn't know better back then. The drugs felt good, and my doctor told me to take them so I did. Before long, my life was turned upside down. I was stealing from people, lying to doctors, buying drugs from the streets. After 10 years of this, I knew it was not a life I wanted to live anymore, so finally I accepted help. I did 2 months of rehab and then MUCH more therapy after getting out. And soon I began to feel like a normal person again. (Support groups saved my life) Slowly, I've built a good life for myself, which is something I am proud of. And I am a good person again... the person I want to be. We really need to educate everyone on what can happen with these drugs. I think this was a great video and I hope we can continue this conversation about opiate addiction. Thx for reading :)

As someone who has been on pain medication for years and got put on opioids for a combination of back pain and a broken shoulder, I was a little worried when I realized I could have my mom request extra prescription by having her tell a doctor I was still in a lot of pain whether or not I was. I’m very grateful for John Oliver covering such a difficult subject that so many people are too nervous to mention.

I like how majority of these comments are complaining about the pain and saying how they are assumed to be drug addicts. Listen guys yes you need something to relieve chronic pain because yes it does lead to miserable lives HOWEVER you need to understand that many doctors need to have their licenses provoked for malpractice. Opioids are highly addictive and in fact so is a lot of medication. You guys need to understand that most of the doctors that say no prbly isn’t because they few you as drug addicts but rather because people react differently to them. You may not see it but your body becomes chemically dependent on these medications after awhile. Even if you don’t go and abuse your prescriptions you can still be addicted to them. And some people have higher addictive tendencies and others. And John Oliver is right here, we can’t just stop prescribing but we can’t just give it to everyone. So where is the solution? This isn’t a quick fix guys. It will take time. First we need to regulate the pharmaceutical industries. There’s no reason why medication should a) be so readily prescribed and b) why the cost should be so high. This is about money. Always has been. And you guys who are a) getting addicted and b) not receiving vital pain medication are all symptoms of this problem. As far as the lobbying let’s be clear. They’re not out to better you they’re out to profit so yeah of course they’re gonna put on a “moral cause” argument. Because it’s a PR thing. You guys need to stop getting up in arms at people who actually wish to solve the problem.

Funny or not get your facts straight, the opioid problem has not been caused by chronic pain patients who take their prescriptions responsibly. Politicians and fanatics are forcing people off of pain medications and the suicide rate is skyrocketing because people can not live with debilitating pain!!

Wow, John Oliver, really held the profit hungry Pharmaceutical Companies to task, for causing the Opiod Crisis. The company, responsible for inventing, manufacturing and marketing Oxycontin, is not publicly traded. It is owned by the (((Sackler))) family and is maintained as a private family business. I really love how John Oliver had the courage to include these facts in his report.... Oh wait, he didn't. He just repeatedly blamed Purdue and then tried to change the subject to Hillary's Period. He failed to mention that the (((Sackler Family))) paid large grants to Purdue University, in order to promote the efficacy of powerful synthetic opiods.

(Browses through comment section) It's awfully convenient isn't it? To blame addicts for being why us chronic pain sufferers are disallowed pain medication. It's not like John Oliver boasts a hefty viewing audience of over a million and could decide to be intellectually more honest here and present both sides of this issue. Addicts aren't lying to people on late night tv shows. Addicts aren't refusing to prescribe their patients pain medications for fear they'll be locked up. Addicts aren't creating a heroin epidemic by refusing to treat chronic pain patients so they flood an illegal marketplace and find that heroin is the only thing which they can afford. It's easy to scapegoat some tiny minority with no real power then it is to stand up to giants like this..those with real power who are shoving our friends and loved ones off cliffs without a thought because taking their own lives is the only thing left for them. Oh well silly me. John Oliver did consider us in the last 2 minutes of his show. I feel better already.

recovering prescription painkiller addict here, this is hilarious and accurate. btw the naloxone spray, naloxone is an opioid blocker so it stops the receptors from accepting the drug, thats what it does. i take suboxone and it has naloxone in it so you don't go and get high while on sub treatment

THIS IS BEYOND IRRESPONSIBLE, FACT CHECK 70% start with "prescription drugs", <1% start with a prescription prescribed to them..... almost 100% of that start with "prescription drugs" is addicts stealing the drugs or obtaining them illegally. That fact is BEYOND RELEVANT given that the way he presented it feeds to propaganda that assumes punishing chronic pain sufferers will curb heroin.

Myself it has been over nearly 16 years! Can anyone who is compassionate really even try to understand constant pain everyday, yes everyday, for this long! There are some of us who really, really need these opiates to have anything even close to a quality of life! WAKE UP AMERICA, PLEASE!

No further regulations are needed for painkillers. They just have switched to heroin; which is better? Pure pharma grade, tightly controlled and manufactured pills or random street heroin? I think that sort of settles it.

As a chronic pain suffer. I have never tried any illegal drugs or or substance. I need these drugs to get out of the bed and function, work and have a almost normal life. Unfortunately the large problem is that so many people are using these drugs to get high, and used by people who have never had a headache. Please stop punishing valad use of these drugs for the few people who can't function without them. I have never snorted, injected or used these drugs other than the way they are intended. I have seriously considered suicide if I have to live in constant pain 24 hours a day, seven days a week and 365 days a year. If you also look at the deaths due to opioids they are taken with grapefruit juice (this is a big problem as the combination can cause any unabsorbed chemicals to be instantly released causing overdose. Also, if these drugs are taken with benzodiazepine, this dramatically increases the possibility of respiratory distress. But taken are directed and within reason these drugs are beneficial and give many people their lives back where there is able to become productive members of society again. By the way I suffer from degenerative disc disease, peripheral neuralgia and has had numerous back and neck surgeries. Please stop the prohibition of pain relief for people that are in chronic pain.

Drugs aren’t the problem. People work harder and longer, they are expected to be okay with being in crippling debt and working 70 hours a week.

My ex ran the science dept at a community college while taking 10-12 oxycontin a day - for about 15 years. He would act weird sometimes, but it was still amazing how long he kept his shit in one bucket. However... he lied constantly, cheated on me and stole a 14” telescope from the college. Eventually Bruce got so strung out he lost his division chair job. He is supposedly clean now. Lets see how long it lasts...

KRATOM, SUBOXONE/SUBUTEXT, METHADONE, LOWERING YOUR DOSAGES /W KRATOM OR SUBOXONE: I went 19 days methadone (And any synthetic or natural opiate-free), the longest I've ever gone with the help of Bali Red Vein Kratom (main) and White Leaf Maeng Da (For energy), both activate the Delta and MU opiod receptors in a way similar to suboxone, though dosage greatly varies, it wears off much quicker, is fairly expensive to use to stay clean ($500 ish for hte 20 days is what I needed but I didn't know exactly what to buy, where to go, best brands, etc, still really dont though I have some idea) I cannot recommend it enough, you can use it with your opiods to lower the dosages as well, the Maeng Da will help stimulate you so you aren't so nod-y if you are on heavier stuff. Again, they activate opiod receptors so if you are already addicted, this won't make you more addicted or exclusively addicted to kratom, and can be far easier to take to get off shit, wean down than say, methadone, or even suboxone You can also take it on suboxone to assist. (as it hits the same receptors and produces similar alkaloids) Suboxone is alos like a freakin' miracle drug, longer lasting, very little is required usually, especially if detoxing is your goal.

When I was in the Army, I had 3 ruptured discs in my lumbar. For 2 years my pharmaceutical list was: Percocets, Vicodin, Valium, Hydrocodone, Fentanyl patches, Oxycontin, oh and morphine and methadone. I took all of that EVERY SINGLE DAY. Needless to say I dont remember much about those two years. My wife said I was mean spiteful and a completely different person and were on the verge of divorce. Verge might not be the right word. I was getting medically chaptered and we had both agreed separate as soon as we got back to our home state. I remember one day, about 6 months before I left the army, my daughter came home from school and I asked her to sit next to me and tell me about her day. She wouldn't come near me. I said to myself that I had to fix it. I talked to my Sgt and a couple of friends and for 2 weeks, I didn't take anything. It was brutal. I wanted to kill myself and claw my skin off my body. But I stuck it out. After I was clean enough to function, I told the army doctor that she better not prescribe that crap again. She then proceeded to flip out and tell me that people coming off that stuff have died from the withdrawal. I told her i understood why. But I wasn't about to have drug rehab on my record. I consider myself a strong person but even I was taken to limits I can't even describe. I hope that Drs and pharmaceutical companies take a long look at what they are doing and ask themselves, "Would I give this or do this to my family?"

As someone who needed pain relief for an injury, long term, who then became addicted to those pain meds...my life was saved by a simple herb in the coffee family. Kratom, aka Mitragyna speciosa. It made withdrawal a cake walk, relieved all symptoms, and it turned out to relieve more of my pain than oxycontin did. Also fixed my life controlling IBS, my depression and anxiety. It allows me to have a life and be a Mom. Of course, it is natural and cannot be patented by big pharmacy so they have begun a smear campaign in the public, false claims of deaths etc to scare people, and lobbying the government to try and outlaw it. Now we have to fight to keep it legal so that people like me are not forced back into addiction just to be able to function. Kratom allowed me to not only go back to work after 15 years, but to open my own business that will soon employ others in the telecommunications industry. They want to take it all away just to protect the profits of these giant companies. How much do I have to pay a politician for one of them to care about me and my family?

I was on quite a few painkillers after a motorcycle accident. That said, I rationed them out, and due to the fact I still had to work, I managed to get through most of my days by gobbling aspirin during the day and using the stronger stuff at night. I can say that the awareness of it's addictive properties is important. I mean, I didn't want to get addicted to that shit, but the pain was making me irritable and constantly tired. I got better once my wounds healed up, and I don't even take aspirin but a few times a year these days... but I can see where it could easily happen. I mean, being able to not be in pain and functioning normally for even just a little while is like a cold glass of water in the desert. I'm glad I don't have anything chronic, and I gained a helluva lot of empathy for people who ended up addicted...

There are millions of us with the same type of story. One of my pain coming from cluster migraines and chronic kidney stones.and this condition is one of painful in the world, and migraines very different from other migraines. Now I can go on but I hope I found a little help to give us a very tinny voice and we need a voice. Our medical conditions are***disability***in fact I was awarded a social security disability because of my cluster migraines. because of that disability we are denied access to any kind of medical treatment and live in a condition a family would never allow this happened to their family Pet. We were forced into withdrawal and live in 24/7 torture and denied help from urgent care and hospitals. This is definition of-discrimination and we lost our rights guaranteed in our constitution. Every word that comes from our government trump, sessions and fbi is a lie. Scripts are not the cause and the truth is in articles like this one. If only the government and some media stopped reporting the same information over and over and did the research they would come to the same conclusion. This article should be sent to anyone you think of. I live in a dark room my hubby created, the drapes taped to the wall because Light is one of my worst trigger and I’ve been there for the last year +. I have not seen may daughter and grand kids for close to a year and I would love that before this kills me one way or another.

As a pain specialist, I recommend asking your doctors to send you to an interdisciplinary pain program, or use those similar techniques of physical therapy and movement, stress management, coping skills, breathing, nutrition, etc. . Whether or not opiates are part of your treatment plan, they are not meant to be your only treatment, and must be used in the context of interdisciplinary care. Opiates may decrease some sensations of pain but always at a cost to the brain, such as your mood, your ability to move, your desire to socialize, your ability to cope with stress, etc. Just be aware and so that you can be empowered to live well with your pain.

You have misunderstood pseudoaddiction. I have been living with chronic pain since childhood and am not in my early 30's. I am happy to talk to someone about what pseudoaddiction really is and to provide a range of peer reviewed journal articles, and to explain the nuanced medical and psychological issues involved. Opiates can be addictive. Opiates are NOT an appropriate 1st, 2nd or even 5th choice for pain management. No drug is a complete management plan. The issue here is that you have dismissed and mocked a very real part of pain disorders, and it is so freaking hard to get help as it is.

Im sorry Guy, you are hillarious, but in this one instance you are wrong. I have experienced "Pseudo Addiction" firsthand while seeking relief from chronic pain resulting from my crippling back injury. The doctors thought i was just an addict. It took some effort to set the record straight.

Most junkies get hooked on heroin (or now illegally-made fentanyl) by using illicit street opioids. This 75% theory is anecdotal bullshit from dopers who have plenty of motivation to lie about how they got wired. That’s why anecdote is not admissible evidence in court. Of course many junkies try—and often succeed—in augmenting their addiction to illicit street drugs by getting opioid prescriptions. But there is no conclusive proof that most junkies got hooked first on prescriptions. It’s real “fake news.”
