Presenter will illustrate the effect opioids have in our community in 2017. I will also review how these drugs get into the hands of abusers and their suppliers. Most importantly, I am going to review exactly how Natural Alternatives actually work to get to the CAUSE of why people initially use opioids. The goal is to raise awareness and make Natural Alternatives to opioids be COMMON HOUSEHOLD KNOWLEDGE. I feel that changing how health conditions are handled in the home can bring about cultural shift.
