Violence against women is overlooked in its role in opioid epidemic. Women who are sexually assaulted by their partners or other men sometimes turn to opioids to numb themselves. Tinnakomjorruang.

Research has repeatedly indicated that drug use is associated with partner violence, specifically against women, who may be particularly susceptible to such violence when under the influence of opioids. Living with substance use disorders puts these women into a number of contexts that expose them to HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases that jeopardize their survival in many. These issues must be changed if we are serious on addressing the opioid epidemic among women. Women who use drugs have told our research teams that they feel unsafe in the locations where they are forced to inject. In fact, they face greater risks than men in these locations where men – who may have abused them – share.

New article: Violence against women is overlooked in its role in opioid epidemic March 20, 2019 Dr. Nabila El-Bassel explores how violence impacts women in the opioid epidemic by sharing the voices of women she and her research teams have interviewed over. Violence against women is overlooked in its role in opioid epidemic Nabila El-Bassel, Columbia University A strong link exists among sexual violence, substance use disorder and HIV in women.

Why. Although the epidemic of opioid addiction and death has been fueled by prescription opioids, and the dangers of over-prescribing are well-known, the practice continues. In 2016, one in five (19.1%) Americans received an opioid prescription, including 21.8% of women and 16.4% of men. 6 Reproductive age women who receive Medicaid may be more.

  • I went to a Pentecostal church for about half of my life and I was always looked as a curse to my family due to the fact I have autism and the church looked down on that. They would even complain about how you shouldn’t smoke while members of the church smoked themselves. I can understand Miranda’s point of view but I hope her drinking problem gets fixed.

  • The Sackler Family are much bigger drug barons than Pablo Escobar and Joaquin Guzman. The only difference between them is the Sackler Family have a business plan.

  • It’s bad here in Seattle and I’m from here crazy when blacks was on every corner up here using you didn’t see this outrage now you see all these whites everywhere from way up north all the way south on every corner it’s a crisis smh sad to see

  • The large amount of scripts for pain pills are so high is because Drs. are required to write an new prescription every time a pt. needs a refill. The bottom line is that the DEA works for the cartels, and the cartels are left out when prescriptions are written by DRS. They want you to have to get your drugs on the street, so they make up this epidemic B.S.

  • I have had Percocet, hydrocodone, Tylenol 3, as well as other painkillers, and I have never wanted to do harder drugs. I never became addicted to the pills.

  • I chose to white knuckle and i’m just fine been there and back, every one need to just man up and stop being a bunch of babies, they just want to keep sucking the tit (meds) be dependable on yourself and be countable.

  • I love that his parents and the people are so proper and professional and tell it like it is we live in a dangerous place nowadays I pray everybody make it out I love all of y’all may God be with your through the day and night

  • Addiction is awful, when you are in the midst of it there is nothing anyone can do…. its so hard when your in the midst of it… i have been on morphine for 12 years for health issues and i got addicted to it, in slowly coming off it. But i have a 6yr old its so hard to explain what is like when you are in the clutch of an addiction, no one can understand, its so hard and i wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy… withdrawals from morphine are a bad as withdrawals from heroine and they are horrific, so you do anything to get rid of them. Luckily I don’t have to get mine off the street and never have and I don’t get withdrawals anymore, I feel so much for all these addicts and there families.. and I’m proud of the women that are getting clean for their kids.. anyone can become an addict, celebs anyone.

  • Wow her mum just searches stuff in her head.. hahah i freaking know how it feels girl.. we all have those periods of time where we just want to party and whatever..

  • Live in Grant County WA and pills/heroin are literally RUINING our state and youth… along with coke/crack and meth!! I have 4 years clean off of meth myself in June (next month) but started with popping pills and drinking at 11, now 29.

  • Patriarchy in the family is expressed in many different forms of social relations that call into question the viability of social institutions of the community and these relations are given a legal name for their countenance in the community and are socially transmitted from the past. They do not disappear on their own but require a complete break from the existing social order by masses of people no longer willing to play the role of victim and being blamed for the violence.

  • the ‘war’ on drugs is a failure by design. there are fractions of law enforcement and cia that foster this endless flow of drugs while pretending to keep a war on it. It’s all a lie to keep the poisons flowing by design. people can’t accept this truthso they judge and sneer until their loved ones or children become addicts and they are forced to look at it first hand in a different way.

  • This topic needs a whole lot more than 5 minutes. US Intel and Homeland Security identified the #1 Red Flag for profiling “most likely to commit mass murder/terrorism.” Domestic Violence history. Not race, nationality, religion, economic status, education it’s male batterers. See one, report one.

  • Robin DeGrace,
    Wow what a sick twisted way to make this about you. I think I’m right in saying that you are an attention seeking drama queen? And honestly, escorts and sex workers 90% of the time NEVER disclose their occupation so publicly the way you just did.

  • The daughter clearly needs help but I would go crazy with a mother like that too. But as an adult, it’s the daughters job to recognize she isn’t functioning well in society and needs help.

  • I’m sorry to say this but if the parents of these children are on drugs it’s because the grandparents didn’t do a good work with them either and letting them have their grandchildren doesn’t seem a good idea.
    They should be given to loving families who have successfully risen up people with no problems/ a good healthy and functional life.

  • Charles Whitman was a sick man with a brain tumor and asked for his brain be autopsied when he dies. Terrible deed but I believe an mri would’ve prevented that incident.

  • I smile when I say a lot of things. I have never been videotaped through an interview, so I don’t actually know what my face and body language would convey when discussing something difficult, but I often wonder if I would come across accurately in this sort of situation. I do not tend to show what I’m actually feeling in my face based on the feedback I receive. I’m sure that body language experts like Dr. Phil and his team are looking at a lot though.

  • I live in Texas and Im thankful its common practice here for people to take responsibility for their actions for the majority of everything instead of asking the government to fix it for you. The government controlling everything is the problem.

  • Americans have created a murderous society.
    All Americans do is create carnage, death and suffering everwhere they meddle.
    Does it really matter if Americans kill each other?

  • Mr.Scruggs made some very important statements Re domestic violence/spousal abuse/ neglect within the United States.As a Clinical Social Worker,I have seen this violent behavior numerous times within a family.I did a long,documented research paper entitled” Spousal Abuse in the rural community” three decades ago.Unfortunately,this continuing violent interaction between people in intimate relationships,has continued to escalate” tenfold.” Americans,really NEED to view this ongoing human condition as a subject that they Can become Much More informed and aware of in their lives.This IS A VERY,VERY,VERY SERIOUS,IMPLODING EMOTIONAL/ MENTAL HEALTH SITUATION IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. VIOLENCE IS NOT THE SOLUTION TO PROBLEMATIC SITUATIONS. PEOPLE CAN UNLEARN,”learned negative ways of handling difficult problems,situations in life,if provided with the tools of education,information,resources needed for such positive,healthy,productive lives.” This Can Be Achieved,People,in America,in the United States of America.” United We Stand,Divided,We Fall.” I think We Can, ALL OF US STAND.THANK YOU.NANCY. SANDERS,CCSW

  • I remember seeing it being covered for a couple days, then the story was gone, just like all the others until the next one, but I watch independent media.

  • Why did the media ignore Frederick Demond Scott who openly expressed hatred of white people and over the course of a month assassinated 5 white middle aged men walking in parks around St. Louis? Why did the Media Overlook the stabbing to death of Caleb Radford for the simple reason of having an African American wife?

  • The Russian investigation is very important,Trump is getting nervous……why would this be?….But we also need to hear about the world around us,what if there was a rising by these hateful,racist right wingers? We would need to know!!! Each station should have 3-4 of their hosts,DAILY!report on other news in America….. We are already being compromised by the Russians,we don’t need it to happen on our homeland.Instabilty in the US will cause more terrorist attacks,we are seen as weak and would be viewed even weaker…..Not a good move…so please report both…

  • I have been on MATs for years (suboxone)
    My quality of life is fantastic, I pay taxes, take care of my family, own a home and work for a living and recieve zero government support.
    I may have to be on this medication for the rest of my life
    So what?
    The recovery community adds to the stigma when some nicotine use disorder, overly caffeinated glucose abuser starts whining about someone on MATs not really being ‘clean’
    Are diabetics ‘clean’
    Or hypertension patients taking blood pressure meds?
    Or the numerous other conditions that require medication? often for life!
    The recovery community needs to look in the mirror.
    If someone is a functional member of society, contributing to that society with a high quality of life, what more can a person ask for?
    We need every tool in the tool box to combat this epidemic
    Stop the stigma and preconceptions
    MATs save lives
    Everyone wins when addicts get help, stop stealing, get their life together and start caring for themselves, their familys and their community’s

  • Because once again it was a white man and the media didn’t want to once again play that across the tv. Also domestic violence is downplayed at every angle in America no matter the color.

  • I like how they just ignored the fact that he lived in that house with his parents and his sister….. you trying to tell me they didn’t know anything? Nah. You don’t live I. A house with MULTIPLE rotting human bodies and not know something is wrong.

  • I heard about that…..
    but unless it’s over 10 it’s seen as normal.

    Mass shootings are everday like Ed said.

    A War Against Bullying is needed too.

    Retribution for perceived past injustices are often factors in school and work place shootings.

    This is the problem with over emphasis on interpersonal competition over cooperation.

  • Dirty smackheads like the redhead deserve to have their kids taken off them and put in a hole with no contact and no social services.

  • If it was not for methadone maintenance I would most definitely be dead by now. The medication along with intensive outpatient therapy has turned my life around completely. The stigma around methadone needs to stop. It saves lives for those who truly want to change and take it seriously!

  • I feel for the kids, I at one time had an addiction to, to crack. My mother’s and their dad had to raise my two daughters. Thank God I got locked up before the streets killed me. I’m saved by God’s grace and mercy today. I have 3 grandkids that don’t know that side of me praise God. It’s still a struggle every day 22 years later. The past is the past, but if you don’t stay prayed up and focus the devil of addiction can take you back. God �� bless the children that have to find their way with out their parents

  • I was one of theses children, my mum was a heroin addict before and after I was born (28 now), I lived with her up until she died (she was clean 5 years when she passed it would be 7 now if she was still here) dont get me wrong i saw things no one should see let alone a kid but i never went without i always had what I needed. Maybe I was a lucky one in a weird way

  • Wow, not everyone is cut out to a parent. The price tag alone is daunting. What does two dui’s and-not attending church prove but this woman is plumb depressed. And has no real clue why.

  • That parent lady doesn’t understand that prohibition has never worked. Go ahead, get rid of all legal opiates. Then, come back and tell me how that totally fixed the opiate problem… Can anyone name a single time in history prohibition has worked? First, you can’t get rid of illegal drugs. We can’t even keep them out of prisons, so good luck getting them out of an entire country with 3,000 miles between it.

    Here’s the issue these Victorian Era prudes simply don’t want to admit. People want to get high. People will always want to get high. You won’t stop them, end of story. You can spin your wheels and spend all your money trying. But, it’s never been done.

    You need to explain to me why a person doing drugs is bad in of itself. That’s where the debate should begin. The vast majority of negative effects that come from drugs are a direct result of them being made illegal. The ONLY countries who have had any success with this problem, are the ones who’ve legalized and or decriminalized them. Spend the money on rehab instead of law enforcement.

    People wonder what would happen if we legalize a “dangerous” drug when we already have just that, alcohol. It’s by far the most dangerous, kills even more people than ALL other drugs combined. Yet, we celebrate it.

    I’m sorry, but you bunch of “experts” are a waste of money. None of them even started from a point of objective reality. Put the ex addicts in charge. They actually know how to fix the problem because they aren’t full of shit about what the problem is.

  • I think people in the comments need to remember that addiction is a disease, these people are ill, not an excuse for what they have done but it’s important to have empathy and understand that this is no life for anyonethe addicts and the children suffer

  • Sadly my whole life was filled with addicts, abuse, neglect, sexual assault and more.. my mother chose drugs over me and even sold MY child innocent body for drugs when she couldn’t afford them anymore or couldn’t figure out how to score more herself. I was in so much mental pain i starting using too to forget about all the trauma i went through daily.. It was a nightmare. Thank god i am now a sober adult and got my life on track and i have never been better. I have even been able to forgive my mother and help her try to get sober as well. Im so glad i never gave up and im so glad i didnt actually die any of those times i was so close to death or wanting to take my own life. I know lofe can be horrible bit things do get better sometimes and im beyond grateful it did ������

  • Anthony Sowell is being held responsible for what he did so why are people wanting the police to be held accountable for what he did. Those women knew they were living a very risky lifestyle and anything could happen any day including being murdered. I think the women need to shoulder there part and own the responsibility for what they were doing and for putting themselves in that position.

  • Heidi sitting there strung out talking like she’s off it. Poor Tia and Lacey

    The other girl so proud of her little girl Serena learning to make it through the week on a tenner. Shameful absolutely shameful

  • I’m angry, upset, confused and shocked. Those poor children. What got these parents into it? Why did they get into it? And what can we do to help them out? I would never resort to drugs and can never understand anyone that does but that doesn’t mean i don’t want to help them

    The insight that Lacey and Tia’s mum has is great. She has more insight and clarity than most people. She’s had a supportive mum and i believe she’s going to really try with her kids. I understand the guilt she feels for leaving them and how that might impact how she interacts with them. She doesn’t want to discipline because she feels she doesn’t have a right and instead she just wants her kids to love her. They may need to seek some family counselling though.

    I don’t like how this is mum focused though. Where are the dads? Can we hold them responsible for neglecting their children because in the comment section people are berating these women. At least every single one of them is doing something or saying the right things.

  • The pharmacy at 3.30 mins has a street sign advertising NUROFEN PLUS. this is a dangerous opioid painkiller available over the counter. Many people become addicted to the codeine in it, and then move on to pure opioids like black market pain killers or street heroin. It’s a bit ironic seeing that sign on a shop used in a documentary about drug addiction. In Australia they banned the sale of Nurofen Plus and drug related admissions and deaths fell extremely fast. The company that makes Nurofen Plus throws money at our government and despite nightmare rises in opioid deaths and addiction, they are allowed to promote their product as a good way to manage pain. It is disgraceful.

  • I know I’m going to catch hell for this but OH WELL..The woman who said “These kids need counseling and they havent given them any” she is putting something that the guardians of these kids should be doing on someone else. Also the woman who was out at the cemetery to see her mama and stated she dont have a head stone because the city hasnt given her one yet should also be ashamed of herself because from the time her mother passed until the time of this doc I’m sure she got income tax. I’m sure she got enough to buy a stone. Shes also scared of how any houses she drives past that could be another Sowell house but isnt public speaking to educate people on things, hates Cleveland but I’m sure is still living in Cleveland

  • Not sure where human rights start for children with a drug addict family member. Apparently is not yet contemplated how difficult is for a child to grow up in this environment and later on building a similar environment for their own child. Is a circle!

  • This is going to possibly sound far fetched but I feel like this mother takes pleasure in her daughters failure because she sees it as “proof” that everything would’ve been fine if she had just carried on with what she was taught to believe. I’ve seen this type of thing before in my own family where a member was convinced that had their child just believed in God and gone to church that nothing bad would have ever happened…her daughter wouldn’t have gotten into a situation that led to her being sexually molested, wouldn’t have had a miscarriage, and wouldn’t have been t-boned if she had just went to church and prayed every night like a good little Christian.

  • Shame on the UK for not offering any financial assistance to the people who love these kids the most; the grand parents. If they werent around you would have to pay foster parents. In America relative caregivers are given a small stipend; counseling for the child’

  • Lmao. Ok so everyone who’s saying “I took pain meds and I didn’t get addicted” needs to stfu. Just because you took 5mg of hydrocodone (vicodin) or percocet for acute pain after a minor procedure or a minor injury for a week or 2 doesn’t make you an expert. Many people who are chronic pain patients are prescribed massive doses of opioids such as 60mg or 80mg of oxycodone every 4 to 6 hours. And they’ve been taking them every day for years or decades. When you take that high of a dose daily for a few weeks or more your going to get physically dependent. Weather or not you abuse it is a nonfactor. Anyone taking that high of a dose will become physically dependant eventual. Now this isnt a problem until the doctor abruptly takes away their prescription. Because now within 12 hours of not having an opiate they will get seriously sick. To the point of vomiting non stop. Dirreaha all day. Shitting yourself. Puking on yourself. Muscle spasms, not being able to sleep or eat or drink or get out of bed. And this lasts for weeks. So they buy pills of the street. Then that gets too expensive cuz pills aren’t cheap. So they start buying heroin just to stop the horrible withdrawl symptoms. This is why people are pissed at doctors and pharmaceutical companies. Because most of these people weren’t warned about the side effects or possiblity of addiction.

  • drug addicts should be euthanized on diagnosis (as a drug addict). It would be far kinder on everybody involved. The kids, the grandparents, especially the addicts. I was a 13 year dope addict so that includes me

  • Conservatives: dont like poor people having kids, dont wanna help the with welfare, dont support contraception.
    Liberial: supports abortion, welfare,and contraception and planned parenthood.

    I wonder which one is going to help with these problems.

  • All of these children are showing symptoms of mental disorders. It upsets me that most will go undiagnosed and they were never given a choice but it was forced upon them.

  • I went to a Christian school. It was that or get shot at the gang banging school by my house. I’m thankful my parents sacrificed their extra money to send me there. Now, as far as the rest, that’s nuts. Nothing wrong with Santa or Halloween. We celebrated all of it

  • Our foster daughter was born addicted to six drugs. Including methadone. It took SIX months to get clean for the baby. Much harder for them to detox than an adult. She is now 2.5 and we adopted her two months ago. Her foster brother, not by blood, was taken at 15 months old. His parents were passed out on drugs at a wellness check by police. Mom and baby were covered in bruises. We have had him five months. He has major issues just in the 15 months under their care. Sad.

  • “why are you telling me that?”
    Dr Phil is noticing something, and I think it’s that shes saying things to paint the situation in a certain light. He’s trying to give them both a wakeup call about what they’re trying to do so they can actually move forward.

    I think the mom is really not recognizing her own part in making her daughter the way she is. No matter how nice she comes across, I think that’s a major issue in being able to heal the family dynamic. That’s probably why Dr Phil is being kinda harsh-because she’s not self-reflecting well.

  • if the control of guns is not possible then why not control the sale of bullets as you need both for a firearm to work. Say for domestic use you could legally own six bullets, if you wanted to go fire of some rounds or whatever then you would have to do that thru a properly registered gunclub with strict controls over the ammunition. Special licensing for hunting would need to be enforced whereas unused ammunition would have to be handed back after a person had finished a days hunt.

  • That’s interesting that you could supplement the traditional methods of treating addiction with medication to make it easier. I have heard that breaking an addiction is really hard to do, so I could see how having as much help as possible with that would be good. I should recommend that my buddy tires that out since I think that he might have an issue with addiction.

  • It annoys me how dumb people can be, it’s like you have to explain to them word by word for them to understand what it can do to a human body.

  • Apparently it’s dangerous for the mother to stop opiates completely while in the 1st and 2nd tremister of pregnancy.
    Shame the fathers are no where to be seen to help out with the children.


  • As a mother I can’t understand how ANY circumstance NO MATTER WHAT IT IS could ever make you jeopardize your child. SICK. scoop their reproductive organs out with an ice cream scoop!

  • I was on a drug treatment court program and had 3 years clean. Once off probation I relapsed and kept getting high for 2 years. Im on the Vivatrol shot now And I haven’t used in 62 days. I don’t want this to kill me. We have a huge problem in Ohio where I live and nationwide.

  • I grew up in a very deprived town in scotland where drugs were rife. Id say about 20% of the kids i went to school with were all raised by their gran because their parents were all drug addicts. It was so horrible, a full generation wiped out by valium and herion addictions.

  • This is in actuality a whitewashing advertisement to shut people up. It’s been a tactic used nationwide. The board here is a sham.

  • Methadone is just as bad as heroin. The withdrawal from methadone is worse. They are making methadone out to be better and it’s not. It’s just the state regulating your drug

  • “The luckiest children in the world are the children with two parents that love them unconditionally and want the best for them, they put the children’s needs first, before their own.” Material crap means nothing.

  • Honestly I live in Plano and I didn’t know about this story. Perhaps the story didn’t make national attention because it’s not a national story. When we consider how violent, drug addicted, and gun crazy oir society is, we’d never talk about anything else if we covered all of these massacres.

  • The environment in the UK is very toxic. I wish the government would spend time on educating British parents so they would learn proper parenting skills and disciplining instead of spending money on wars in the Middle East. The future is very dark. If you do not discipline your kids at the right time you would never be able to control them later in life. 5 minute of disciplining would not only save your and their life but the whole society.

  • Drug users are the most selfish people and manipulators not taking responsibillity for anything. Kim is just disgusting she makes me sick.

  • this epidemic is probably a lot worse than people think

    because a lot of addicts have good jobs, and plenty of money to blow on their fix

    so it takes them a long time to hit rock bottom

  • To anyone who is still young and has a parent(s) addicted to drugs dont lose hope. You can have a life that is not defined by their actions. Be strong, be kind and never even think of trying drugs. Depending on the way you were raised and on the severity of your parents’ drug use, you may face problems like depression, low self esteem etc later in your own lives but you can get through that too. Just never lose hope.

  • When its a white male perpetuating murder and  mass massacre in America, its always a conspiracy theory;  a set up or a mad man going rouge. From The Newton schools massacres, The Aurora theatre shootings, to the Las Vegas shooter..etc. The white male never had to be held responsible for his action and community actions. But, every black man and women have to answer to Chicago gang violence and the “13% of the population speech”. Their deflection and hypocrisy is sickening and typical.

    We do.

  • It was not trending. No trend, no print. This is the branded future we have paid to live in by choosing to buy worthless consumer products we don’t fucking need at 5 times the price we shouldn’t even be paying because we don’t fucking need any of it.

    Anyhoo. Thanks idiot population of brand following zombie fuckpotatos. This is technically all your fault.

  • Her mom is far away from ideal Christianity and cause her daughter some peer pressure. Didn’t Jesus told in Bible to stay away from arrogance, discounting and despising manners? Church is should to be a building what is mocking club of flawless people. No wonder if girl got exhausted of ideal workoholic flawless life.

  • Clearly both mother and daughter need some help, but did anyone else feel like Dr. Phil was a bit more extra… it didn’t seem like the Dr. Phil I’m use to watching. He was kind of rude and even seemed a bit aggressive with his words and tone IMO

  • What is disheartening about this case is the fact that the system failed the victims and their families! I know the family has many questions, but there is one question that bothers me the most “How was he never investigated, after countless reports, allegations and even the stench, how?” It was heart wrenching watching this documentary, but I am glad that they can all rest and are at peace. Prays goes out the these families who have endure the pain and suffering.

    This documentary hit me at the end. These were all beautiful women regardless….

  • The first mass shooting in Modern history was in 1949, dubbed the “Walk Of Death” committed by Howard Unruh who killed 13 people during a 12 minute walk through Camden, New Jersey.

  • I got mild insomnia for a long time getting up around Four am on many mornings. Yet only these latest months, my resting time are 2 to 4 hours. It has become even worse. By simply looking at this plan, I was able to find out much more concerning sleep and learn the techniques to get a far better sleep at night.. I researched this guide on Google.. Name of the guide is Zoey Sυnodoz
    take care

  • ….YES, YES, YES, WE SHOULD CODDLE THESE DRUG ADDICTS, DON’T SHAME THEM, GIVE THEM A SAFE AND SECURE LOCATION TO SHOOT UP HEROIN, “massage their feet and give them Pedicles, bring them a rose and a chocolate treat when we serve them breakfast in bed”…..

  • It’s only gotten worse in 2019. needles on the ground everywhere. junkie bums are raping people on a consistent have to carry a gun just to feel safe.there are rvs littering the streets every corner of the city there is piles of trash.seattle is dying

  • I started taking opiate painkillers in 2010 regularly for my back. The Army gave me a referral to a pain management clinic in Savannah and they would script me for 120 7.5/325 hydrocodone and it eventually moved up to 325/7.5 oxycodone.
    Then I finished my medboard and retired out. I moved back home to MO and was unable to continue getting my meds. It led to me buying them illegally for years and it ended with me almost losing everything in my life including my own life.
    It was Fentanyl the last one I was using and come this October will be 2 years free and clear from taking opiates.
    Everyone is different and responds to treatments differently but in my experience what worked for me was putting myself into a inpatient rehabilitation center.
    They got me through the withdrawals fairy comfortably and I stayed for as long as my Tricare covered which was 30 days.
    After getting out I was still struggling with cravings and staying away was difficult very very difficult as it is everywhere and so easy to find.
    2 things got me through it and I am no longer addicted. I loathe it the same way I do the drug Alcohol which I haven’t touched in almost 5 years now.
    Those 2 things were first Kratom but I realized I was just switching drugs as Kratom is pretty addictive producing similar effects.
    I broke the addiction with a handful of LSD trips. May sound stupid or crazy but it worked for me.
    I use 2 substances now. Caffeine and Nicotine which has been the most difficult to quit.
    But really after those few trips it was like something just switched off in my brain and I no longer even thought of using. Like I said its just as nasty to me as the drug Alcohol and I know I will never go back. EVER.

  • I’ve just watched “Unseen The Cleveland Strangler and I’m absolutely disgusted with what the shopkeeper who owned the Imperial store, he said he would rather have had a million Anthony Sowell’s than the women he murdered, he said “he cleaned up the garbage”!! Absolutely disgusting comment! I hope someone confronted him about what he said! He needs it!

  • For the record Charles Whitman also had a massive tumor compressing his amygdala putting him in nearly constant state of elevated paranoia and anger.
    That he had both firearms and the training to maximize his rampage matters, but the beginning of his spousal abuse and violent rages begins with that tumor, not with a previous pattern of harming his family.

  • Send them over 2 John” Jigsaw “Kramer. He’ll either scare the opiates or opiod demon shit outta em. Our allow them 2 put themselves outta their own misery.

  • I find it interesting he didnt have a specific type of person based on physical features beside black women. different ages, hair types, weights

  • Its because of something called “sensationalism”. For a few years I became a promoter and it opened my eyes to see how bad the info we receive is controlled by ratings. The mainstream media only talks about issues that will have big interest and higher ratings. This story shows you how society now thinks that its “normal” for an estranged husband to kill 10 or less people and thats why it did not get much attention. Sad world full of collective psychosis.

  • They’ll believe a lily White female…go tell that to the victims’ families of the Yorkshire Ripper. So sick and tired of this ignorant bullshit.

  • Not sure what statistics are but it seems like there are alot of younger moms then in the united states. It also seems they rely on the goverment to take care of them. This is so foreign to me. I had a child at 24 and I thought that was young. I was raised by a single mom and lived with poverty. I was lucky because I had a grandma and Uncle that helped by a home in a good neighborhood so all four of us could live in a safe place. I have three kids. If my 21 year old daughter were to get pregnant and couldn’t care for the child I would raise the baby and not even thing about the goverment giving me money. It’s not a comon thing here. We would do it because they are family, just as these grandparents did. The difference being I would never expect the goverment to help, nor think they should. One grandma said we are saving the goverment money by raising our grandchiildren. I was shocked. It’s your grandchild, not the goverments. That’s my take on it. I am sure if the parent couldn’t a family would be happy to adopt.

  • BTW, you were taught in grade school that Columbus wanted to get to the ‘east” to get ‘spices’ and stuff like that. Nonsense; it was hashish and opium that PAID enough to make those trade journeys overland profitable. Life was brutal and these substances were the only things that effectively eased pain. But, this was in a time before hybrid cultivation of cannabis for high THC potency, and before opium was reduced to morphine.

  • This didn’t happen in the 50s 60s 70s this shit happened in 2009 there is no excuse for the cops to be this ignorant and incompetent. Would the bitch ass man have to rape and kill a woman in front of the cops for them to take action sooner. Not filing evidence, not doing rape kits, not contacting the surviving victims to follow up with the investigation, not even starting an investigation. What in the hell was going on in Cleveland. There better not be one cop, detective, sergeant chief or captain left in that district. “We was fuckin and she fell out the window”? And then went with her to the hospital �� unfuckin real!!!

  • Horrible people. I have zero sympathy. If you love drugs that much then get sterilised because you are creating kids who are traumatised for life. There are people out there who would do anything to have a child. You are vile! I don’t care about your excuses… you bring a life into the world.. take care of them!

  • This is so crazy, there is a girl I know who died of an OD on a related video “eric johnson presents Demon at the door heroin in Seattle” thumbnail on the sidebar… seriously makes this even more disturbing to watch. 2 people OD’ed in my local high school in 2014. On another note, couple of friends of mine in the seattle scene are going into suboxone treatment gets tested regularly for drugs and apparently now all heroin addicts getting tested for heroin in this downtown seattle clinic are also testing positive for fentanyl, looks like this combo is here to stay in seattle and likely to spread to other areas. please keep this and mind and be safe out there everyone

  • The fact that the mom says “she’s not resentful that she got sent to a Christian school” but than “but she says she’s resentful”…… Mom is just completely ignoring her and her feelings.

  • As with all opiates the only problem, if properly regulated (so that you know the strength, purity and it’s being unadulterated) and available unimpeded to adults by licensed physicians there is no problem maintaining perfectly normal family relations, normal employment and normal social interaction.
    The problem occurs when opiates are relegated to the black market where the cost is prohibitive for most people to maintain without committing property crimes. When propaganda relegates addicts to “filthy, junky scum” society WILL get exactly that individuals who have no desire to conform to the standards of people who constantly judge them, incarcerate them, look down on them and basically are revolted by them thanks to the successful propaganda perpetuated by the puritanical, paternalistic, dogmatic, abstinence only, approach. Without laws that make heroin illegal there is no astronomical price necessitating property crimes.
    It might be of interest to know that just over a century ago the corner store legally stocked most anything from cocaine to laudanum and heroin. Mass crime no, it wasn’t controlled by black market prices. Homelessness and relationship problems no, there was no propaganda stigmatising and demonising users.
    A “War on Drugs” never has occurred. It has been and continues to be a “War on Drug Users”. Who or what gives you the right to tell me what I can put in my body when it (heroin/opiates) have NO adverse effects bar constipation. Opiates will not make me psychotic like some in the amphetamine family, even cannabis, can, nor will it make me aggressive, intolerant, violent and attack ever vital organ in my body like alcohol can/will. No, the only time that an opiate addict will possibly (I say ‘possibly because after over 35 years I’ve never caused anyone else ANY problem, never committed a crime not even driving affected) cause a problem is when they go into withdrawl, try it sometime. It’s no fun especially when there’s absolutely NO reason for it.
    One would have thought that Prohibition would have taught the U.S something but it seems that when a Nation dominated by god fearing, bible bashers has world hegemony they’ll make life as miserable as they can, for as many as they can. Ine doesn’t even need to have ever been there to feel the effects of the childish ‘My dad’s tougher than your dad’ mentality!!

  • What about the Hillary Clinton snuff film?! Where she cut a little girl’s face off. Should do a documentary on that… See if you can fake a snuff film. Lol

  • The segment from 9:44. The scene with the haunting, almost terrifying music up until the crescendo at 11:40. I don’t know. I watched this 2 days ago and this segment of the video keeps haunting me. I’m almost a hundred percent sure that its the piece of music that does you in.

  • a damn shame all this but I can’t stand vice and their liberal affiliates. Y’all have worked for nothing and are snowflakes. Y’all want equalness everywhere but maybe not on this video but your views and message are not cool. Y’all hate White people. Again anyone can have written columns that your workers have. Y’all are frauds.

  • “This is not typical of me. I don’t know what happened. I can’t explain” meanwhile, 11 bodies later. I wonder if he’s figured it out yet psycho ��

  • Always always look for the SOURCE why do people all these types of random people start on these drugs in the first place. Why did this woman’s daughter a seemingly “normal” person spiral out into drug use. I had percocets and oxys prescribed to me too, easy but I took them and moved on, what is the personality that ends up depending on these drugs…what’s going on, something beneath the surface.

  • How come other tenets of sowells apartment building didn’t notice what was happening? He lived in the 3rd floor so he had to drag bodies through common areas to get to the basement.

  • I hope all the children on this documentary grow up un effected by there childhood traumas and always respect what there grandparents did for them ��

  • It’s a local news item. Not every violent act in the U.S. can run on the national news. The real question is why the more recent one was covered, and the answer is that terrorism was suspected. Also, the large number of people.
