PAINKILLERS ARE TURNING YOUNG ATHLETES INTO HEROIN ADDICTS

Impossible you say? It's true. Athletes, parents, coaches, and especially doctors need to read this.

In our addiction treatment clinic, we have seen an incredible increase in opiate and heroin use among the best and brightest. Sorry, it's not just kids from the wrong side of the tracks any longer. We see star athletes, scholars, and kids you'd never expect to have drug problems that are helplessly addicted.

PARENTS PLEASE TAKE NOTE: 
1) Don't fill pain medication prescriptions for your teen-aged children.
2) Discard any unused opiate pain medications or lock them away.
3) You can prevent your child from falling prey to this nationwide epidemic by understanding the risks, preventing exposure and access to these drugs, and educating your child on the dangers of these drugs.

Read this article and refer to www.naltrexpellet.com if you or your child is addicted to opiate pain meds, heroin, alcohol, or other harmful drugs.
