Thank you for all your thoughtful responses! No matter which side of the debate you are on, you cannot deny the lack of balance by not including a single success story of a non-addicted chronic pain patient. It may not be exciting, but it is simply necessary for showing the truth: the majority of patients do not become addicted (which you wouldn't guess by this program). My concern is, just like you said, the "sensationalism". And many people see these meds used only for lazy, day-in-day-out treatment without progress in health, but most patients are always going to referrals for other docs, surgeons, treatments. Or people are using meds for getting through physical therapy, getting through surgeries and other life experiences. It isn't just lazy folks wanting a high, which you would assume based on many misconceptions out there.
