The issue needs far more attention.

CNN’s three television broadcasters reported this week on US drug crisis agendas opioids, granny, meth and fentanyl in an effort to show how communities enter, they take their toll and efforts are cutting down on them.

Each dose is now a game. Wednesday’s first installment of the CNN “United States Addiction” series focused on ways to deal with the emerging problem of safer drug use than struggle with poverty.

The idea is “harm reduction” — to provide safe spaces for those who use drugs that emit or contain fentanyl that they can contain.

Dr. Sanjay Gupta, chief of drugs, told CNN, he talked to a woman who has been using heroin for 20 years and now fears that fentanyl could be cut by every bite.

Distinguishing drugs with fentanyl. One possible solution is to avoid heavy drugs easily.

Gupta watched the research on fentanyls, which can identify the presence of fentanyl in drugs before the user picks them up. There are pilot programs like one in Arlington, Virginiaso that he strips them of the hands of those who use them.

The researchers also talked about using tools that have been commonly used in forensic science as more detailed ways to find information about applications.

“The question that always arises is, ‘Is this really alive? Does it prevent deaths?’ We know?” Gupta asked Jon Zibbell, who is working to not benefit from the research group RTI International.

“What we see is that people are abusing it more safely – the more they know what’s going on” Zibbell he said.

Providing safe spaces. There are heroin and opioid overdose treatments. Gupta played video of an overdose “rescue” using drug naloxone. Attempts to take Naloxone Plus are in the hands of first-hand respondents and others who face overdoses.

David’s story also sounds like so many other things. She struggles with ALT, and has been in and out of rehab, and drugs that have been poisoned with a lethal overdose of fentanyl are not recognizable.

Butcher has opened a chapter of devoted parents in Kentucky.

There is no antidote to the meth hell in Fresno. Clarke worked with CNN writer Kyung Lah and Anna-Maja Rappardi on the show Meth problem in California’s Central Valleywhich is very different than the report on heroin in Kentucky. Fentanyl adulterated meth can be sold on the street. But most deaths are due to meth alone, for which there is no naloxone help.

CNN reporters went on patrol with a sheriff’s deputy who said the meth epidemic promotes other food crimes, such as domestic violence and theft. It is also a hazard to homelessness.

They spoke with a 13 person who started drug use and can’t eradicate it, and the man who did kick the habit today says meth, produced in large soils in Mexico, is more potent and more dangerous.
