Addicted and left behind: the opioid epidemic killing African Americans        Washington Post        18 December 2018

 

Washington, D.C. residents Sam Rogers and Renee Howell

live in fear of their next drug overdose

as fentanyl has sent the rate of deaths

among African Americans skyrocketing.

 

This is the opioid epidemic

no one is talking about.

Why Addiction Keeps Pulling Me Back        NYT        May 2018

 

 

 

 

Why Addiction Keeps Pulling Me Back | Op-Docs        NYT        May 2018

 

This week’s Op-Doc is Paul Szynol’s “The Pull,”

a searing exploration of the inner life of John Bixby,

a New Hampshire man struggling with drug addiction.

 

Beginning just before Bixby’s release from jail,

the film follows his lonely journey

across the ghostly landscape

of New England’s opioid crisis.

 

As Szynol writes,

Bixby’s story is “an agonizing battle

between his desire to use and his stiff

but weakening resolve to stay clean.”

 

The result

is a lyrical tale of hope and disappointment,

told without judgment,

with glimpses of astonishing vulnerability.

opioids > Synthetic opioid > Fentanyl

 

Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid,

prescribed to help patients

deal with severe pain.

 

Opioids help

to reduce patients’

perception of their suffering

and can induce a state

of extreme relaxation

and euphoria.

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/03/health/what-is-fentanyl.html

 

 

Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid

30-50 times more potent than heroin

and 50-100 times more potent than morphine,

according to the Drug Enforcement Administration.

 

Two milligrams is enough

to be a lethal dose for most people,

the agency says.
