To Whom It May Concern:
We are concerned medical professionals who care for people who struggle with opioid addiction.
Opioid addiction is a chronic medical condition marked by a physical and psychological dependence on opioids (often prescription drugs or heroin). As the disease progresses, patients often require increasing amounts of opioids to prevent debilitating withdrawal symptoms. As a result, many of our patients resort to intravenous injection of drugs, which is a more efficient and cost-effective way for them to treat their withdrawal.
