Dr. John P. Rosa, opioid crisis expert, author and dynamic speaker shares his thoughts on the new Netflix documentary series, The Pharmacist which explores a father’s journey after the overdose death of his son.
ROCKVILLE, MD. February 21, 2020: Owner of Accessible Beltway Clinics and opioid crises expert, Dr. John Rosa, posted a new blog on his website entitled, “The Pharmacist And The Pain That Never Goes Away,” in which Dr. Rosa discusses a new Netflix documentary series.
As Dr. Rosa points out, “People react differently to tragedy.” He continues adding, “Unfortunately hundreds of thousands of parents have been in the position of reacting to the tragedy of losing a child to the opioid crisis that has been ravaging this country since the late 1990’s. Most of those parents were helpless and didn’t know what to do. In drug overdose situations there often seems like there is nothing that can be done.”
“Some of the children may not have died from an overdose,” Dr. Rosa writes, elaborating, “Some of them may have been killed attempting to get drugs in dangerous neighborhoods. Such was the case that is brought to light in a documentary series recently produced by Netflix.”
According to Dr. Rosa, “The documentary poses some intense and important questions. For instance, “What would you do if your child was killed in a drug deal and the cops were less than helpful? Would you be paralyzed with grief, shaking your head at the idea that your kid was an addict, or something else?” As the documentary series portrays, “One pharmacist in Louisiana took it upon himself to find his son’s killer, and after that was over, took what he learned and decided to fight a Big Pharma company that was making more young people into addicts.”
