Why Millennials Need Chiropractic Care

Millennials’ View of the Opioid Crisis

So, exactly how easy is it for millennials to get their hands on the very drugs fueling today’s opioid crisis? Easier than you might think.

According to a new national poll released by the American Psychiatric Association, 46 percent of millennials surveyed said illicitly obtaining such drugs would be a cinch in their neighborhoods – a far higher number than other adults questioned.

Some Surprising Numbers:

  • 1 in 3 millennials know someone addicted to opioids
  • 46% reported that illicitly obtaining opioids in their community would be easy
  • 18% said it’s not a bad idea to take a prescription drug without a prescription

With stats like that, it’s no wonder so many health experts now warn pain sufferers – including millennials – to first consider drug-free, non-invasive options like chiropractic care to avoid the risk of getting hooked on potentially lethal painkillers like OxyContin.
