Here is a harrowing story about pain pill addiction and how easily and savagely it occurs. It’s a story from the Salt Lake Tribune in Utah. It illustrates exceptionally well how easily good people can stumble into addiction, even with their eyes wide open to the dangers. An accomplished, intelligent, award-winning writer becomes addicted not because of childhood abuse, inherited predilections, emotional dysfunction, or moral failure, but instead because of simply using too much of a drug, prescribed properly, for too long.
