i think the opiode epidemenic in the US, has caused discreet addiction many people don't admit. This is the thing, there's some people who go to a doctor who are truely in chronic pain, bad, and they use non opiod drugs, even if the pain doesnt go away, not saying leaving the person miserable, but they keeps away controlled substance.

Then there other doctors where you can just have moderate pain, and be prescribed many opiods, hydrocodone is the most common, just for moderate pain, they don't have problem with writing a script. And i think it's become wide spread, in rehabs and mental institution, they avoid all controlled substances in treating conditions, except using benzodiazepines like lorazepam, and clonazepam in severe cases. I was in a psych hospiral having bad anxiety, she put me on buspar, and told her my anxiety im shaking, which i truely was, it was like adrenal relaase stress, then there another guy who just layed around and was loaded on lorazepam from the doctor. I was juts like....if they see addiction tendicies they avoid them. THis guy was just laying around like beer belly and watched tv, had hardly any anxiety... waited for his next ativan, I having adrenal relase. It's like they ignored everything that i twas telling them about anxiety, they just said ... and then said we're gonna keep on the same meds, not change. God....

but it's doctors that are opioid friendly and over compassionate with their patients, when other doctors leave a person in chronic pain with just high dose of ibuprofen

but i think addiction can start with being given a med that induces pleasant feelings, and then you wanna stick with it. They have no problem with keeping them on opiods for years. But when i was in high school, i had very low dopamine, and truely, i could not do my work, it was just falling behind and prescribed adderall 30mg, and that was not working, so started bumping the dose up really high, not really to get high but to get ... being able to function and having active dopamine transmission.

it's complciated, addiction can start with having low dopamine, and then doing gambling or over pleasurable activies to make up for it, then there's you try a drug and like you it, and you can't stop taking it.

addiction clinics for me never worked because i would go through their programs, i know how rehab works, i've been in it 3-4 times, i know how to passv through and leave. Main thing is low dopamine, frequently have to smoke or do something to boost my dopamine levels or i get in a depressed state. Addiction clinics don't understand that, so i know how go through it and do their programs, and leave.

it' a complicated issue in the world
