I enjoy hearing other viewpoints on what can be done to help in the crisis of addiction facing us all right now with so many young people dying daily we here at sobercoaches4living.com have our struggles with attempting to help those who come to us seeking a solution one moment and then the winds of life begin to blow and they return to using drugs it is difficult and at the same time heart wrenching to watch.

Chickens coming home to roost. Euro-gentiles, that's you white folks, have pushed drugs into every country on earth. Now those chickens are coming home to roost, enjoy it.

As some point out, there's little doubt that if this was confined to the minority community the response would be different. However, talking about the chicken coming home to rouse is like crowing about the large hole gushing water at the front of the boat in the raging ocean because you are at the back of the boat.

Well this guy really is a victim of a bunch of people trying to "help" him. He gets browbeaten at the local rehab and 12 step meetings, He gets browbeaten at the local Evangelical Megachurch all reinforcing the same message. Has it worked??? apparently not. And it will never work. If it ever happens he will do it when he's ready for himself and no one else.

If is wasn't white people dying it wouldn't be a epidemic? I feel it's their karma for being ok with black and Mexicans dying from drugs but God forbid little Jane and Billy do.

People CHOOSE to get high. People KNOW this drug is addictive. Accept responsibility, quit claiming it's a disease.

Wow, and they say the “white people” are racist. You need to check the statistics folks before posting your comments. It’s affecting both black and white communities. Pretty sad to see everyone slinging mud, it’s affecting EVERYONE NATIONWIDE. Keep going with the division folks....your playing right into their hands. We as a nation are stronger together than we are a part. Think smarter!!
Julie Turner (9 дней назад)
Gene Louie I agree on that point completely. I’m not ignorant. I’m completely aware.. I see what’s going on. The crack epidemic no one cared, and back then it was in reverse regarding ratio. My point is, they have us all strung out on something, and that was the goal. Keep the masses medicated and aloof to what’s truly going on.
Gene Louie (10 дней назад)
Yes, it’s effecting everyone BUT minorities has a disproportionate rate of harsher sentencing for drug related crimes verses their white counterparts. You omit that part. It’s not racist to point out facts, to ignore or omit facts are.

+Pa Jeet um no the black community does not. Crackers are the biggest welfare recipients. You fukin dummy
Pa Jeet (15 дней назад)
It’s because it’s destroying social cohesion within the white community. The black community depends on White America to be productive so to fund the government checks that subsidize the cost of raising a child. Many black communities were safer in the 80’s than they are today. Addiction is indicative of widespread despair. And white despair pleases you ?

The biggest problem that H addicts face, is the monopoly that 12 step holds in the community. 12 step works for some, but if you’re like me, you might need something to take the edge off. Methadone and Suboxone are not the answer for many. I wanted to get OFF opiates, not just trade up. Marijuana has been my savior when it came to getting off of H. I’ve been smoking weed since I was a kid, and it never led me H. It did however, help me tremendously when it came time to get off of it. The term they use now is Medication Assisted Therapy. Well, in my opinion, if you want to get off of something, you don’t keep using a different form of it. Yes, medication can help you get off of opiates. But that medication is NOT a different form of opiates. Just give Marijuana a chance. Yes it is a medication, and the safest medication at that.

Death is death, although i agree with some people posting here regarding the double standards. When it was the crack epidemic of the 80s that affected black people it was a crime issue, no compassion was shown. Now though? With whites being hurt? it is a public health issue. Same applies really to all diseases which attack a minority group. Ex: HIV. When it was gays none cared, suddenly it starts hurting straight people? Boom, it is a public health crisis.

Thomas Jefferson wrote 250 years ago, "The only threat to this new form of government called democracy is corporations." He knew the power of money because he was the second richest man in the U.S. Our government is now owned by corporations that care nothing about the American people. They poison people for profit with processed food and pharmaceutical drugs. The U.S. is now 42nd in the world in life expectancy. In 41 other countries, people live longer than in the USA. Our food supply is toxic, our environment is toxic, our medical care is horrible, but we continue to believe we are the greatest nation on earth. Personally, I am a retired American doctor and now live on the pacific beach of Colombia, South America. It is a paradise and it's very cheap for an American. The average income of the people here is $40.00 U.S. per month, but they have good clean food, great weather, free fish in the ocean, tranquillity, natural beauty, and no taxes. Goggle El Valle, Choco, and see where you could live like a king on American social security. Don't believe the hype that America is the greatest nation in the world, it is not. I love being an American because it is the nation with the most opportunity. My family was poor on welfare and food stamps, but I became successful, cashed out of the USA, and now live in paradise for almost nothing. They love Americans in Colombia and you can get a resident visa in 48 hours if you have a SS pension. I am telling you this because I love Americans and want everyone of my countrymen to have a great life.

I strongly believe a big part in this Opioid crisis is that Doctors cut their patients off of their pain Meds without warning. Especially chronic pain patients. The way the FDA/DEA went about it, was completely juvenile.
Thomas Griffiths (1 месяц назад)
Black people r just as racist as white people that r in this case it shouldnt matter over color addiction effects all people. Okay the goverment didnt do the right thing back in the 80s crack era in the so called black communities maybe beacause they didnt have a good solution and choose a wrong one but its a different era now things have changed especially between white and black so quit holding grudges and passing hate and resentment over past wrong doings heroin effecting just as many black lives as white what do u think lean is african americans liquid heroin. All lives matter its not white vs black its us vs goverment
whoo else (1 месяц назад)
Thomas Griffiths but you have to understand that if some blacks are being racist then its totally justified. How would you feel if your ancestors were enslaved for over 400 years & suffered several decades of oppression? Im not saying im racist or otherwise but at the same time, im not feeling any sympathy for these junkies because nobody had sympathy for the crack addicts. The ones who are talking about drug treatment today were the same ones supporting mandatory minimums during the crack era.

It's very hard for me to feel sorry for these people because no one forced them to do this to themselves. It's a CHOICE THEY MADE. I hope they get the help they so desperately need but they have to want the help. Also, because of people like these that abuse opioids, I can't really get my doctor to prescribe the pain medication that I actually need so that I can have pain relief so that I can go to work so that I can support my family.

C'mon black folks, stop with your hatred. Yes, there was likely an element of racism with the war on drugs in 80s that decimated black communities, but that is no excuse to have hatred for all 200 million white Americans. Not every white person is racist. And even if they were racist God commands you to love your neighbor. And if you don't have God then you need to repent and turn to the Lord Jesus Christ so He can make you into a new creature.

The reason this is so....amazing...is because in this white country, this white world, we see whites throw their lives away. This is their kingdom...AND THEY'RE KILLING THEMSELVES!!! With the crack epidemic whites mocked so called blacks, laughed and humiliated them in their state. But whites didn't wanna say that THEY were the cause, THEY put crack in the neighborhoods, THEY paid people to do so, THEY put African Americans in such a horrible state that they had nothing else to turn to...or so they thought. This is a country oppressing blacks so of course they'll run to things for comfort and reconciliation, they shouldn't, but they do. BUT WHITE PEOPLE... This is their country!!! This is their world!!! And they're KILLING THEMSELVES!!! You can't tell me that's not God's justice. ALL PRAISES TO THE MOST HIGH!
