(PharmaNewsWire.Com, January 12, 2017 ) Boston, MA -- The Boston Globe reports that nearly a decade after losing his 16 year old son to heroin overdose, Pennsylvania interim attorney Bruce Brandler is turning his focus on ending the opioid abuse epidemic plaguing the state. He has vowed that his focus in the coming year will be on cases in which opioid use resulted in death, bringing heavy penalties against the doctors who neglectfully prescribe the medications. This comes after all 93 US attorneys were ordered to come up with an actionable plan to address the opioid abuse epidemic in September 2016.
Drug and Alcohol Rehab Boston commends Brandler for finding purpose in his young son's tragic death. As a leading provider of drug rehab in Boston, the facility knows that a large portion of the responsibility for the opioid abuse epidemic lies with pharmaceutical companies and negligent doctors. By demanding accountability, Brandler is helping us move forward in combating the silent epidemic.
A representative of Drug and Alcohol Rehab Boston comments, "The bravery Prosecutor Brandler has exhibited in exposing such a sensitive personal experience and using that tragedy to help save the lives of others in commendable. Accountability in the medical and pharmaceutical fields has long been overdue. We, as a nation, must hold our medical professionals to the standard for which they pledged: to do no harm and to help those in need. Careless prescription practices have contributed to overdoses being a leading cause of death in this country- it's all avoidable. We wholeheartedly agree that negligent doctors should be held accountable for their part in the opioid abuse epidemic. Not just in Pennsylvania, but across the country."
