Thanks CNN

Drug menace is omnipresent in the world . In America , drug overdose deaths resurface time and again . CNN dedicated its prime news hour to this issue which was  moderated by distinguished panel . Thanks , CNN

As physicians , specially as primary care providers , we have a major role to play as most of the time it is in  their office where this problem is initiated . Community health centers get to see this cross section of population who use , misuse and may be sell on the streets .

But not too long ago , physicians were answerable to dropping  patient satisfaction , decreasing patient numbers and all in all non impressive  bottom line . Physicians are sandwiched between patient’s  wrath and unaware administration .Even if one of the physicians join administration , they do not take time to change colors .

More public awareness , stricter guidelines , more grants for behavioral health issues are required for this ongoing public menace
