A Heroin-Sodden Holiday ...with Hope!

A Heroin-Sodden Holiday ...with Hope!
by Zac Talbott, BA, CMA
Chair | Private Clinic North Patient Advisory Committee

                The joy of the winter holiday season has started to permeate the air. Christmas trees are beginning to light up the windows of homes lining southern towns as other families anticipate lighting the Menorah on December 16th for the first night of Hanukkah.  Holiday parties fill weekend planners and seasonal music flows through shops and restaurants.  For many people it truly is the "most wonderful time of the year."  But the sad reality is that not all families will be celebrating this holiday season, as many will grieve the lives lost to the opioid addiction and overdose epidemic that is plaguing the southeastern region and the United States at large. Addiction and overdose take no holiday from destroying or taking lives, and this year there is particular reason for alarm as reports of heroin begin to dot the map in rural areas where even five years ago it had never before been seen.
