Charleston Daily Mail – Chris Yeager says he is sick of seeing people dying of opioid overdoses.
Over the past several years, two members of his family overdosed and died, including his brother, who died on Christmas Eve in 2010. Both were taking suboxone, which is used to treat pain and opiate addiction. Read article.
“It devastated our family,” he said. “There aren’t many people in this state who aren’t affected by this epidemic.”
Those deaths inspired Yeager, a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, to look for other ways people suffering from chronic pain and other ailments might find relief without getting addicted to prescription medications.
