    Do you think Dr's are helping to create this addiction epidemic?

    Most definitely! I think many doctors overprescribe opioids. I went in to have one wisdom tooth pulled and left the dentist's office with multiple RXs that I didn't even need. I wrote about this experience on my blog, in case you're interested in reading it:

    Doctors need to be more cautious. Period.
