“Cobras Pharmacy has just gotten caught up in the opioid crisis”
By NICHOLAS KAMM/Associated PressThe National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion says it is warning that people who live in communities where opioid use is high could be at risk for developing opioid-related health problems.
The opioid epidemic has hit hardest in rural and suburban areas in the U.S., which have seen a sharp increase in overdoses in recent years.
In some of the country’s poorest and most rural areas, overdoses are the leading cause of death, with people dying from overdoses at a rate of more than 300 people per day.
Nationwide, more than 14,000 people have died from overdoses this year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The most common cause of overdose deaths in 2016 was fentanyl.
The CDC’s statement says that the epidemic is having a negative impact on communities and the health of those who live there, but that opioids are also being abused in those areas.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said it had identified some 1,600 people who were in this position in the country last year.
In the case of the Cobras Pharmacist in Woodbridge, Virginia, the CDC said the pharmacist is facing a high risk for opioid use and overdose because of opioid-induced mental illness.
In response to the CDC statement, Cobras pharmacy issued a statement that said it is working to ensure that all our customers are screened for opioid addiction.
Cobars pharmacy has a long history of treating and caring for its customers with integrity and compassion, and we have always made the health and safety of our employees and the community at large our highest priority.
The Cobras website also includes a section for people to seek treatment if they experience symptoms of opioid addiction, but the pharmacy also says the pharmacy is working with local, state and federal authorities to implement a comprehensive response plan to deal with the opioid epidemic.
The website says the Cobas Pharmacy, which has more than 50 locations, will work with local and state health departments to offer the best care possible to its patients.
