There's something hauntingly familiar about this thread
As in the last thread, OP, you are oversimplifying.
I get that you believe that the inappropriate prescribing of opioids contributes to addiction.
The problem is that you keep trying to blame what you refer to as "experts" for creating the problem. Our point - at least my point - is that the real experts have nothing to do with the kind of knee-jerk throw-a-drug-at-it response you describe.
Addicts are the population we love to hate ... with very good reason. No one likes the manipulation, lies and thievery that they use to get their drug of choice. You seem to have been badly burned by this dynamic.
Blaming the attempt to manage their pain for their addiction is not a useful approach.
