How to do a story on drugs?
It can be difficult to get the right tone and to convey the seriousness of the issues.
Here are some tips for writing about prescription-drug abuse, especially for people living in a time of drug overdose.
A story about addiction: The best way to convey how addiction works is to start with a simple analogy.
Take the word addiction in the first person.
In the United States, more than 5 million people are addicted to prescription drugs.
They are more likely to be prescribed opioids, which are addictive and can lead to overdose.
This makes a drug overdose more likely.
The word addiction also can be used to describe a drug like cocaine, which can cause a drug user to use more drugs, but which doesn’t necessarily make them more likely or more addicted to drugs.
To use the analogy, it is easier to write about a person’s drug use in the context of an addiction.
But the more complicated the metaphor, the more difficult it can be to convey.
When talking about prescription painkillers, for example, it’s difficult to portray addiction because addiction is so complex and difficult to define.
If you use the metaphor of addiction to describe addiction to a drug, you can then convey the complex relationship between the drugs and addiction.
Be realistic about the statistics: People who misuse prescription drugs are more than twice as likely to die than people who do not.
This is a real concern for many people, but a common misunderstanding is that prescription painkiller abuse is a random occurrence.
It is much more likely for someone who has a prescription to have used drugs that are not controlled or monitored.
If your story focuses on prescription pain, you must be careful not to paint prescription drug abuse as an outlier or an exception to the overall trend.
In fact, it may be that prescription drug use is an important driver of opioid addiction and overdose deaths.
A recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that people who use prescription drugs for pain are more frequently taking other drugs that can cause similar problems.
And prescription drug misuse is also more common among people who live in states that have higher rates of prescription drug addiction.
It may be time to shift your story to the issue of addiction, which is much harder to address in a single article.
Ask your readers to take a risk: In a time when people are often using drugs on impulse and without understanding their risks, the most important way to tell a story is to give people a chance to take some risks.
To help people take a second chance at getting high, we must provide opportunities for them to learn about drug abuse, addiction and their own health risks.
For example, one of the best ways to get a reader to take on a new challenge is to ask them to take part in a drug-treatment program.
These programs are designed to help people who have been exposed to drugs, and are often the most promising and rewarding option for recovering addicts.
By providing the reader with a chance for someone to take the next step, you will have a more complete picture of the drug use problems in your community and can more effectively convey the risk that these people face.
