I've written about opioid addiction specifically, but addiction in general is the bigger problem.
For example, alcohol kills more people than opioids — more than all drug overdose deaths combined. It's associated with chronic disease including high blood pressure and heart disease as well as fatty liver disease.
Instead of self medicating, I recommend a process involving exercise, good nutrition and dedicated coaching. Exercise, especially, can relieve a lot of the tension that is often treated with alcohol.
So with coaching we will help with all addictions and put it in a lifestyle framework.
