The Doctors weigh in on the recent horrific video of a mother reportedly overdosing in the middle of a store as her child screams in fear!
The September incident reportedly took place at a Family Dollar store in Lawrence, Massachusetts after the woman reportedly has sniffed the powerful prescription drug fentanyl and then got a call to pick up her daughter. She stopped at the store to buy diapers and she lost consciousness with her child by her side. Her overdose was videotaped by other customers in the store.
The Doctors explain that fentanyl is often used medically, but can lead to serious consequences when taken by people it’s not intended for.
Nearly 500,000 people have died from drug overdoses since the year 2000 and the number of total deaths from prescription opioid overdoses has quadrupled since 1999.
Since the woman’s shocking video went viral, she spoke out to CBS Boston, explaining, “I want to learn to love myself again, to look in the mirror and be happy… It shouldn’t have happened period. I shouldn’t have taken anything or been where I was or who I was with… If I knew I was going to be like that I wouldn’t have had my daughter with me. That’s not what I want my daughter to see, her holding my hand trying to get me up and crying her eyes out.”
According to CBS Boston, the woman was able to seek treatment in late September.
