Dr. John P. Rosa, opioid crisis expert, author and dynamic speaker, talks about the dire consequences of opioids on the innocent children, victims of overdose, addiction and untold suffering at the hands of a nation in the grip of an addiction to greed.
ROCKVILLE, MD. June 20, 2019: Dr. John Rosa, dynamic speaker, national opioid crises expert, and co-author of The Recipe for Success with Jack Canfield, posted a new article on his website entitled, “The Early Demise Of Innocence For Generation “O”,” in which Dr. Rosa reveals that an entire future generation is suffering as a result of the opioid crisis.
Dr. Rosa writes, “Generation “O” is a term I coined a few years ago while researching the under-reported effects of the Opioid Crisis on our nation’s children.” He elaborates, “The “O” stands for overdose and yes, an entire generation is being affected by this opioid crisis. The “O” can just as easily also stand for “overlooked” and “outcast.””
Dr. Rosa goes on to elaborate on the daily events that contribute to this national crisis. He writes, “90 babies are born addicted to opioids EVERY DAY. Children witness an overdose of their parent EVERY DAY. Children are forced to take care of themselves and siblings as parents can’t get out of bed EVERY DAY. Children are placed into foster care due to unfit parents or being orphaned from overdose death EVERY DAY. Grandparents are taking in grandchildren when they don’t have the health or means to care for them EVERY DAY.”
According to Dr. Rosa, “An entire generation of children is being born addicted to opioids or simply living lives of untold suffering as a result of parents addicted to opioids. And this is happening in the midst of supposedly the richest, most sophisticated nation on the planet. ” He adds, “I don’t see us as so sophisticated or wise. We have become so numb to the problems society faces and although we know such problems exist we think someone else will fix them. This is simply not true especially as it relates to the Opioid Crisis”
