A SUMMARY OF DISCUSS
FELIX BREZULA DO., a West Virginia Neurology Physician who found himself brutally arrested wrote December 1, 2021:
Doctors of courage, through the freedom of information act, we’re able to obtain close to 300 pages of information, considered classified and for “insiders” only, concerning the HFPP or Healthcare fraud and prevention partnership designed to address what has been considered the prescription opiate crisis, which was felt to be solely responsible for rising abuse and deaths from opiates.
Keep in mind that there is no unequivocal proof that prescription opiates accounted for less than 1% of opiates abused.
By placing opiate “misuse” under the umbrella of fraud, waste, and abuse, allows for criminalization of prescribing of opiates and leaves physicians, pharmacists, and other health care personal criminally liable for any prescribing of opiates for any use.
THE TRUE PROBLEM BEHIND THE OPIOID CRISIS
Mikhaila Peterson PETER “THE HAPPY WARRIOR” PISCHE SALLY SATEL MD.
MASSIVE GOVERNMENTAL OVERREACH
According to Helen Borel Ph.D. “The American Agony The Opioid War Against Patients in Pain:”
“The overreach of government lawyers, police, and prosecutors into the lives of patients in pain, which has been going on for years and is still happening, has gone from distressing to death promoting. Too many, almost all, of these autocrats, have been blithely abusing their unrestricted powers.
Which abusers include many State prosecutors who’ve gone overboard in their zeal to bring down an entire industry- Prescription Medical Manufacturing- vital to 21st Century health and survival.
Which include Big Pharma corporations that have developed and manufacturing opioid medications commonly used for over a century to treat various levels of pain.”
“Relieving Pain has become a Pain”
On July 22, 2021, Jeff Singer MD wrote:
A settlement was announced between several states and the pharmaceutical distributors McKesson, Cardinal Health, and Amerisource Bergen, along with drug maker Johnson and Johnson, who were accused of contributing to the opioid overdose crisis.
The three distributors agreed to pay the states $21 billion over 18 years and Johnson and Johnson agreed to pay $5 billion over 5 years, ostensibly to go towards drug treatment and education programs. Johnson and Johnson and the three distributors continue to dispute the allegations while agreeing to the settlement.”
Dr. Singer rightfully has questioned this agreement in his title “Opioid Settlement Will Do Nothing to Change The Trajectory of The Overdose Rate.” Singer et al. are absolutely on point simply because “Relieving Pain has become a Pain” for many being treated for Chronic Intractable Pain and Incurable diseases specifically those diseases of genetic origin.
“The reduction in opioid prescriptions, however, did
not reduce overdose deaths”
11/29/2021, ACCORDING TO THE HILL ONLINE JOURNAL ARTICLE CALLED, “The opioid crackdown leaves chronic pain patients in limbo,” BY MARK A. ROTHSTEIN AND JULIA IRZYK, OPINION CONTRIBUTORS:
” The opioid crisis, which began in the 1990s, is worse than ever. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), for the 12 months ending in April 2021, there were over 100,000 overdose deaths, an increase of 28.5 percent over 2020 levels.
Often lost in the understandable concern about these fatalities are millions of chronic pain patients who are unable to get adequate pain relief.
In 2012, American physicians wrote the staggering number of 255 million prescriptions for opioid pain relievers. To reduce deaths and other harms, the CDC and other federal and state policymakers focused on significantly decreasing opioid prescribing and usage.
By 2020, there were only 142 million opioid prescriptions, although in some parts of the country there are still exceedingly high levels of opioids being prescribed.
The reduction in opioid prescriptions, however, did not reduce overdose deaths.
In fact, from 2012 to 2021, overdose deaths soared from 41,000 to 100,000, with most deaths now resulting from illegal synthetic opioids — fentanyl and its analogs.
Fighting the “war on opioids” at every physician’s office was a terrible mistake, and an unintended consequence has been to increase the suffering of many patients with chronic diseases whose long-term pain management depends on access to opioids.”
How did we get to this point?
