Prescription Painkiller Deaths Decreased 5% While Heroin Deaths Increased 200%, Linking Prescription Crackdown to Heroin Trend

LogoNew data suggests the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency’s crackdown on Hydrocodone prescriptions has positively affected painkiller-related deaths, with a 5 percent decrease. However, according to a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), heroin deaths have doubled in the past two years, leading Michael H. Lowenstein M.D., medical director for the Waismann Method treatment for opiate dependence, to believe prescription painkiller legislation may lead to a “win, lose” situation without prevention and treatment strategies in place.
