What You Can Do About the Opioid Epidemic

Today I’m talking about opioids, a topic I’ve had on this blog before. A couple of weeks ago was National Opioid Awareness Week in Minnesota. It’s not just there, but across the country. When I published my book 8 months ago, Breaking Free from Pain and Opioids: Discovering the Hypnosis Option, 78 people died each day from prescription opioids and heroin. Today it is 91 people each day. 

Hypnosis is a viable alternative for pain management with no addiction or negative side effects. The worse that can happen is that it doesn’t work.

Our legislators need help. They can curb how many prescriptions doctors write, but they aren’t offering other solutions because they aren’t aware. Many of my clients want to know what they can do – write your representatives and senators and tell them that there are other options for them to explore.

Hypnosis isn’t the only answer or the entire answer, but it is a piece of the puzzle. For those of you that have had a loved one or someone you know that is addicted to opioids, this is an opportunity for you to do something about it!
