Thanks for sharing. I know you live Down Under as we’ve shared emails in the past.
This is a tragedy but it’s nothing new.. The opioid epidemic in the USA peaked around 2005-2008.
Here’s a good article that explains exactly what happened and the new epidemic, Heroin!
How Florida ignited the heroin epidemic: A Palm Beach Post investigation https://heroin.palmbeachpost.com/
Also there’s a show in the US about two recovering addicts from Florida that try to help, mainly young people that moved to Florida to enter a rehab only to find themselves homeless living in addiction. Extremely RAW, Sad but it’s really driven a lot of awareness regarding the current epidemic.
