When used correctly, medicines such as prescription, over-the-counter and complementary medicines, help keep us well. However, approximately 250,000 Australians are admitted to the hospital every year because of problems associated with the use of medicines, including side effects and other reactions.
Australia’s Chief Medical Officer, Professor Brendan Murphy advised that almost twice as many Australians die from Pharmaceutical pain killers than from heroin overdose, and he further stated that opioids (pain killers) are the most commonly misused group of medications.

Taking prescription medicines in a way that hasn’t been recommended by a doctor can be more dangerous than we think. In fact, it’s drug abuse. And it’s illegal, just like taking street drugs.
Some people misuse these pills because they think they will help them have more fun, lose weight, fit in and even ‘study’ more effectively.
Also, painkillers are presumed safe and can be bought over the counter so it’s easily accessible to everyone. But, they are DEADLY! Australia’s Annual Overdose Report 2021 reveals that more than 2,000 Australians have lost their lives to overdose for the sixth year in a row.
“Whilst heroin and other illicit drugs like cocaine contribute to hundreds of overdose deaths every year, it might surprise you that most overdose deaths involve pharmaceutical drugs.”

There is an ongoing crisis in Australia in relation to overdose and we aren’t really talking about it. Overdose deaths have outnumbered the road toll since 2014 and the gap is getting wider.
We must therefore do something about it. Are you willing to find out more?

Finding a healing solution that actually addresses the root cause of the issue must be a priority. We shouldn’t rely so much on popping these pills like we are kids in a candy store just to alleviate pain.
We need to change the way we look and talk about drugs because the reality is, that every story is different. It might already be hard to change how the pharmaceutical and chemical industry goes about things, but we still have the chance to make the change within ourselves – let’s get tough on us!
It’s time to focus on what we can do effectively to manage drugs’ safe use or find alternative ways. 💚💙
