  • Damn right it can change peoples lives for the better! All this bullshit in the us has to stop! They’re punishing people with chronic pain who need morphine to live and lead productive lives and spend time with family and even work. Take their morphine away and you’re just signing their death warrant! Because they will not leave the house and probably commit suicide! Let people have their morphine medication if its needed and I guarantee a person in legitimate pain will take as prescribed!! Ffs leave people alone who need meds like morphine for legitimate reasons like chronic back pain or injuries chronic pain!

  • Mi brother is addicted to “grey death” heroin. He’s trying hard to get clean. Ive seen him so badly drugged and sic has traumatized me completely i cant even sleep thinking about him and we dont have money for treatments

  • Another risk is being around dangerous people or overdosing without help because people are uneducated. They are unaware of what they took and how much. If they do know they probably wont say anything.g because they’re scared of getting in trouble. Jail time is scary. Some like jail better than their life situation.. that’s.pretty low from the professionals. That this is out only option

  • Ive met Dr. Williamson. His commitment to his community and the people in it who are suffering from addiction, in particular from opioid addiction, is genuine. I can imagine that many professionals on the front lines, among the first to see a patient in crisis, would just assume someone else further along in the patient care chain would take care of a patient’s addiction needs. Seeing the same patients in the ED over and over again makes it clear that’s not a safe assumption. Kudos to Dr. Williamson for stepping up and initiating programs that place a longer term emphasis on patient care than just addressing the initial emergency room crisis. Martinsburg is very lucky to have him!

  • An unfortunate side effect is that this man is beyond point of return when it comes to addiction. He’ll have to take it for the rest of his life or face withdrawls from hell…

  • sending kids to orphanage to get this drug just shows poverty in countries like these and its sad leaving your kid for necessary drugs. i feel for this guy

  • To me, Morphine is a pain medication of the opiate family that is found naturally in a number of plants and animals, including humans. https://taphpharma.com/product/morphine-30mg/ It acts directly on the central nervous system to decrease the feeling of pain and the result derive from morphine is awesome. It has been my number 1 pain medication for long.

  • Morphine and other powerful narcotics were made to help people like us deal with pain, yet some would prefer these pain medications stop being used completely.
    Making chronic pain patients choose between heroin and suicide.
    I’ve never tried suicide, but have tried heroin. I don’t care for it.

  • I feel bad for this guy… he thinks that shit is helping him… opioids should only be used for short term pain treatment, and only used long term in terminally ill patients. Judging by the handful of pills he’s taking, he’s obviously succumb to the effect of exponentially always needing more of that opioid. Eventually he will reach the critical amount his opioid receptors can handle, and he’ll be fucked. And if he has to get off it, he will be in the most painful dope sick hell he couldn’t imagine. Being on opioids sucks, trust me, but methadone would be better. It’s more stable and doesn’t require a constant increase of dose. No opioids is best however…

  • My only option right now is admitting myself thoug emergency In public hospitals that actually make things worse for.peole who were not meant to be there.

  • Morphine is a way of living for those who need it. It doesn’t interfere in our daily routines. We can live better even the ones who doesn’t take it

  • Basically he is addicted but he needs it to get relief from his severe pain… This is the right reason to be addicted imo. Not the jocks abusing pills for skin called recreational purposes smh
