Veterans Helping Veterans
Veterans are among those hit the hardest by the devastation that is the American opioid crisis. In fact, the latest federal data shows those vets who served in Iraq and Afghanistan are twice as likely to die from an overdose of prescription painkillers than the rest of the country.
A recent report from Newsweek indicates that we should be blaming the Department of Veterans Affairs for turning an astronomical number of veterans into suicidal junkies.
The report, which was penned by Art Levine, explains that the VA’s practice of overprescribing opioid medications is the culprit behind thousands of vets every year meeting an untimely demise. It goes on to say that the majority of the problem stems from the VA’s lack of attention to how opioid prescriptions have been doled out throughout the years. The agency did not start monitoring these prescriptions until 2015.
