"Adequate care" as mentioned in the last article is the crux. It used to be the opioids that were the obvious culprit in overdose deaths, like for Taylor Hawkins, but what do we know about opioid use combined with benzos and anti-depressants? And the last two are usually prescribed by physicians to HELP with addiction. It's not clear anymore that psychiatry, therapy, and treatment centers are helping with mental health issues.
