Unless you’ve been living underneath a rock the last decade or so, chances are you’ve heard about the “opioid epidemic” that has been raging throughout North America and other parts of the world. The opioid epidemic began due to doctors overprescribing prescription opioid pain medication to people all around the country. These patients often were not properly warned about the addictive nature of these medications, leading to a life of addiction and death for over 1,000,000 people since the epidemic began. At Dawn Potter Acupuncture & Wellness we are proud to offer more natural pain management options in Clearwater, Florida. Have questions about our pain management services?
