By: Dr. John Rosa
ROCKVILLE, Md. - April 22, 2020 - PRLog -- Dr. John P. Rosa, opioid crisis expert, author and dynamic speaker writes about how isolation due to the COVID19 Pandemic is derailing efforts to help the people addicted to opioids who are currently in recovery and will no longer be able to get the help they need. For these people isolation could be a death sentence.

ROCKVILLE, MD. April 20, 2020: Owner of Accessible Beltway Clinics and opioid crises expert, Dr. John Rosa, posted a new blog on his website entitled, "The COVID-19 Pandemic Is Making The Opioid Addiction Epidemic Worse." Dr. Rosa makes a plea for finding a way to help the millions of people addicted to opioids during this challenging time.

Dr. Rosa writes, "When a pandemic that requires people to self-isolate crashes headlong into an ongoing epidemic that is fueled by loneliness and isolation, things are going to get increasingly harmful." He adds, "And that is exactly what is happening as the COVID-19 pandemic crosses paths with the opioid epidemic."

"Isolation and loneliness have an overwhelming effect on people who are addicted to drugs and other substances," says Dr. Rosa. He continues, "It has been shown that many people who feel more socially isolated are the ones who are more susceptible to mental health and substance abuse issues."
