Ending opioid crisis requires many solutions

February 22, 2018 – Helping individuals struggling with the disease of addiction and addressing the nation’s drug epidemic require commitment from every member of society. That’s because the effects of addiction have no limitation.

As a leader in addiction treatment for 70 years, Malvern Institute is dedicated to keeping a conversation going about potential solutions. This week, the Philadelphia Inquirer published an editorial highlighting the challenges facing those trying to curb the opioid epidemic and save lives:

That is why it is imperative for people in Pennsylvania, where 3,900 died of an opioid overdose in 2016, to keep talking, and to keep coming up with ideas, big and small, to solve this problem. There isn’t just one answer because there isn’t just one cause or one effect.

Small ideas can be effective. Friends of Casey Fay Berrian, who died of an overdose, established a GoFundMe page to cover her Feb. 4 memorial service in Philadelphia and pledged excess funds to purchase Naloxone, the drug used to revive addicts who have overdosed

On a far larger scale, Gov. Wolf, Attorney General Josh Shapiro, legislators, Mayor Kenney, and District Attorney Larry Krasner are focusing on rehabilitating drug abusers, stopping the free flow of prescription opioids, and arresting drug dealers.
