Narconon Trois-Rivieres has produced many fine PSA videos about Oxycontin addiction, available for viewing on their You Tube channel "narconon3r"
In June 2009, at a time when there were calls for a national enquiry into the use and hazards of prescription Oxycontin, the speaker in this video PSA presentation was in the process of graduating from Narconon Trois-Rivieres Oxycontin rehab – clean of Oxycontin and completely free of addiction. Cliff speaks in a manner direct and persuasive – no one intends to get hooked on drugs, least of all someone trying to recover from injury, and seeking pain relief from their doctor.
Unfortunately, the public perception of “drug addicts” remains that at some level or another, they are the cause of their own misfortune, and entitled to little sympathy. The problem with opioid use, is that physical symptoms of withdrawal are intense – people already in pain will be less tolerant of the combined effect of their pain and Oxycontin withdrawal. Taking Oxycontin at a dose of 40mg or more will chemically cause the disequilibrium that leaves a drug user craving for more, it can also be fatal in someone not used to taking opioids..
The nature of drug addiction is that it becomes a form of involuntary compulsion. Blaming and shaming an addict very often just adds fuel to the fire.
The success of Oxycontin as providing pain relief has relied heavily on the fact that prescription oxy is safe to use, although often prescribed at potentially toxic, and addiction inducing levels, because it is slow release. Apart from people who do the wrong thing and strip Oxycontin of its slow release barrier, of more concern is fact that Oxycontin was in many case not slow release anyway.
