Doctor’s Against Narcotics

Dear Friends,

Join “D.A.N” or Doctors Against Narcotics today. Prescription Opioid Overdose and Abuse has grown to become the #1 cause of death for victims ages 15-55 in the United States. As licensed physicians, doctors, and pharmacists have the responsibility to support the fight against this NATIONAL EPIDEMIC, which has plagued our 50 US states and spreading around the world as well. We have to join the movement that President Obama, HHS Surgeon General, and the DEA have introduced since October 2015.

D.A.N was first created to protect our citizens and fellow physicians by developing prevention of the epidemic. The most important pledge from the “Hippocratic Oath” all medical professionals have taken is “First do no harm” (Latin: Primum non nocere). By joining D.A.N both citizens and physicians will be informed of the current laws and regulations that are regarding prescription of Narcotics/Alternative Medicines, the Prescription Monitoring programs of each state, information about local DEA “Opioid Buy Back” offices, and full detailed information about rehabilitation facilities and dedicated support communities, in your town or city and surrounding areas.

All subscribers receive an official certificate showing their support. Over time active members and physicians can earn plaques of dedication, earn CME credits in regards to opioid management for specialists, and other recognition’s of your support and dedication to fighting this serious epidemic. No more lives lost!

So please join me, whether you’re a victim’s relative or a medical professional in the fight to ensure licensed physicians prescribe medications and opiates judiciously and follow regulations to prevent further growth of this addictive disease.

Sincerely,
Faizuddin Shareef, MD.DO and D.A.N
Founder

Drug overdose deaths surged in 14 states last year, pushing the nation to a record count, according to a government report released Friday. Rates went up in Alabama, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia. In sheer numbers, California — the most populous state — had the most overdose deaths last year, with more than 4,500. Ohio was second, with more than 2,700. Maine and Massachusetts were among the states that saw some of the highest percent increases from 2013 to 2014, with 27.3% in Maine and 18.8% in Massachusetts, according to CDC data.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released the overall tally last week. On Friday it provided more details, including state numbers. For the nation, overdose deaths last year surpassed 47,000 — up 7% from the previous year. That’s the most reported in the nation since at least 1970, according to CDC records.

The numbers are based on death certificates. Nearly half a million Americans died from drug overdoses from 2000 through 2014, the CDC says. The national rate last year was 15 deaths per 100,000 people. The CDC shows overdose deaths from prescription drugs and heroin continues to be the leading cause of unintentional death in America rising 14 percent from 2013 to 2014.

The decades long War on Drugs in America is STILL failing. Perhaps it is time for the U.S. government to rethink its outdated drug policies. In 2001, all drugs were decriminalized in Portugal and drug use and addiction was instead treated as a mental health issue, rather than a cause for imprisonment. This bold change in policy has proven effective, with only three in every one million people dying from drug overdose, as well as drug use, prison rates, and enforcement costs dropping in Portugal. Maybe it’s time the U.S. take a page out of their book? Or maybe it’s bad for big business?
