“Opiates and ‘Benzos’ — a Deadly Cocktail of Drugs”


MIA Blogger Richard Lewis lands an op-ed in New England’s South Coast Today: “Not a week goes by without some news headline reporting about opiate-drug-related deaths spreading across many cities and towns in Massachusetts. What has not been reported about this tragic loss of life is a hidden story that desperately needs to be told; a story about the little-known dangers of benzodiazepine prescription drugs. Attention everyone! Documented evidence indicates that over 30 percent of all people dying from opiate-related overdoses also have benzodiazepines in their system.”
