I live in a very high opiate abuse are of the US. The problem usually arises when people are prescribed opiates as a legitimate pain medication and get addicted. Either that, or kids use them for fun and don't know better and get addicted. Either way, opiates are a serious problem here. I have an EMT friend who's job is about 75% reviving people who have OD'd. It's a nightmare and it hurts the community.
